NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for an open rank position in Media Theory to join its program in Interactive Media Arts (IMA). IMA combines practice-based work with critical scholarship in the exploration of the social, cultural and aesthetic fundamentals of emerging media. Our studio curriculum includes but is not limited to creative programming, digital media creation (animation, VR/AR, and time-based media), physical computing, and digital fabrication. Our seminars cover the theory, history and politics of emerging media.
IMA faculty teach a mix of introductory courses and advanced electives, as well as mentoring Seniors in their capstone seminar. Candidates should be prepared to teach What is New Media?, a required foundational course designed to teach students to research, think and write critically about some of the central debates in new media arts.
We seek candidates who have completed a Ph.D. in Media Studies or a closely related discipline. We are interested in a broad range of research interests and are looking for candidates that can collaborate with other faculty both within the IMA program and at NYU Shanghai across a variety of fields (social science, arts, humanities. Global China studies, computer and data science, etc…).
Teaching experience, a commitment to undergraduate education, and enthusiastic dedication to this rapidly evolving program are essential.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research, statement of teaching interests, and at least one writing sample. Additionally, applicants should submit a reference list with the names and email addresses of at least three referees. The committee may contact those referees once it has completed its initial review of the application.
Review of applications will begin on October 15 and will continue until December 1, at which time the position will be closed to new applicants. To apply, click the 'Apply' button. If you have any questions, please email the NYU Shanghai NY Office of Faculty Recruitment firstname.lastname@example.org.
