Full-Time / Tenure-Track PositionsEdit

Brock University (CAN) - TT Asst. Professor - Digital PrototypingEdit

The Centre for Digital Humanities, Faculty of Humanities, invites applications for a probationary tenure-track position in Digital Prototyping at the rank of Assistant Professor. Scholars whose work intersects with digital prototyping (e.g., computer programming, human-computer interaction, industrial design, and/or locative media) connected to questions in the humanities are encouraged to apply. A demonstrated skillset related to entrepreneurship, leadership, and/or project management is also essential. The position is subject to final budgetary approval. It will begin July 1, 2016.

The Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) offers an undergraduate program in Interactive Arts and Science (IASC) that supports learning in a wide range of practices and disciplines informed by human-computer interaction, visualization, and simulation. The IASC programs (BA, BA Honours, Combined Major, and Minor) are partnered with a variety of academic units within and outside the Faculty of Humanities, including the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Faculty in the CDH also have the opportunity to contribute to Brock's Interdisciplinary Humanities PhD program which includes a specialization in Digital Humanities. In September, 2016, the CDH, in partnership with the Department of Computer Science, will launch the GAME program in collaboration with Niagara College.

The CDH is a founding partner of Innovate Niagara and the Generator at One, the region’s interactive media incubator and production facility where IASC students regularly intern and are mentored by industry professionals. The CDH is also partnered with BioLinc, a business incubator facility housed on the Brock campus.

Qualifications: The successful candidate will be a Humanities scholar whose body of work advances the field of digital prototyping with original thinking and impact. Such work may take the form of published writings, innovative forms of scholarship, research/creation, critically informed design, curriculum, and/or community engagement. Given the emergent nature of interactive media, the successful applicant should expect to provide leadership through transformative research and teaching as well as informed curriculum development and engagement with industry and community partners. In addition, applicants should have an exemplary teaching record that demonstrates a commitment to progressive learner-centred pedagogy. Applicants are expected to hold a PhD or have a doctoral defence date set.

  • Now I'm concerned:  I wrote them to enquire as to where the process was on the 10th and received dead silence in response.  I wonder if the funding fell through.

NOTES:

  • Q: Is this the same job as last year? A: No, they hired someone last year.  They are searching for an additional person perhaps using the same wording.
  • Q: In the "Documents needed to Apply" section it looks like the applicant is supposed to upload the letters of rec.  Is this correct?  Aren't they supposed to be confidential? A: They are making accommodations for people who use a dossier service like Interfolio for this (where the letters are confidential). The workaround is to use the Interfolio email addresses for your letters in the "References" section of the application where it asks you to list your references. The system will automatically email these addresses and Interfolio will send them the letters of recommendation as normal. However, since the system won't accept incomplete applications, when you get to the "Documents Needed to Apply" section of the application you should upload a document that contains the real email address of each of your references for each "letter of recommendation" slot. This can be as simply formatted as the following: Reference 1 = xxxx@xxx.edu. They told me that they will wait a week for Interfolio to get the letters of recommendation to them, after which time they will contact your references using the email addresses listed in your "dummy" files.
