Open Rank in Critical Media Studies - Transnational Media Formations
The School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication
The University of Texas at Dallas
The School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication (ATEC) at the University of Texas Dallas invites applications for open rank tenure stream faculty members in critical media studies. Applicants' research and teaching interests should emphasize transnational media formations, including topics concerning issues of media globalization with a focus on emerging industries, labor and policies, new technology markets, dissidence, and evolving cultural practices.
Created in 2015, the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication merged two long-running programs at UTD: the program in Arts and Technology and the program in Emerging Media and Communication. As a School, ATEC serves more than 1,500 students, including 100 master's students (MA and MFA) and 40 doctoral students. ATEC faculty include artists, designers, computer scientists, social scientists, cultural theorists, and reflective practitioners who seek to collaborate on intentional future-making through the creation of new cultural forms, the design of new technological experiences, the production of new knowledge, and the transformation of the culture industries. Students are taught to be conversant across the discourses of art/science/design/engineering/humanities. They are expected to gain foundational knowledge in multiple disciplinary areas of expertise. They learn how to engage with different modes of knowledge production, different methods of analysis, and different research and creative practices.
With the leadership of inaugural Dean Anne Balsamo, successful applicants will welcome the opportunities and challenges of creating a multidisciplinary school that values collegial open-mindedness and supports collaboration across differences. Faculty candidates should demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence, active scholarship, and service within the academic unit, university, and profession.
This search aims to help create a diverse faculty body and seeks applicants who contribute to equal opportunity at UT Dallas. We particularly welcome candidates who place race and ethnicity, diasporic concerns, underrepresented populations, or social inequalities at the center of their research and teaching interests, as well as faculty who might bring to their research diverse perspectives that stem in part from their non-traditional educational backgrounds or from their personal experiences as members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
Applicants should submit Curriculum Vitae, letters of application, unofficial transcripts, teaching evaluations, portfolios or web sites, up to two sample syllabi, and three recommendation letters via the on-line application system at http://jobs.utdallas.edu/postings/7105. Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2017, and continue until the position is filled.
