The School of Literature, Communication and Culture of the Georgia Institute of Technology seeks applications from digital media specialists with a Ph.D. (field open) to fill a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level.
The candidate should have an established program of research in digital media, which connects the humanities, design, and computation. Possible areas of expertise include but are not limited to: interactive narrative, electronic literature, game studies, information design, interaction/experience design, digital communication, the digital moving image, digital art, social media, and related fields. The specific area of practice is less important than a commitment to understanding and exploring digital media as a tool for expression, communication, and social change.

The candidate’s research should demonstrate success in or strong potential for sponsorship from government agencies, foundations, or corporate donors. The successful candidate should demonstrate a commitment to the integration of theory and practice. Preference will be given to candidates with interests that cross multiple fields, particularly blends of computing and liberal arts disciplines.

The candidate should be prepared to teach and advise across the standard curriculum of the school’s BS in Computational Media and MS/PhD in Digital Media, including introductory and advanced undergraduate courses in the theory, history, creation, and use of computational media, design, and theory.

The School of Literature, Communication, and Culture supports several undergraduate and graduate degrees, offers a growing program in computational media and digital media, and provides a core of humanities studies for the Institute. New hires should be ready to engage in dialogue with faculty members from the different fields in LCC, and will have the opportunity to participate in LCC’s drama, film, poetry, and science fiction initiatives.
