The University of California, Irvine (UCI) invites applications for two tenure-track cross-disciplinary positions in the area of Arts, Computation and Engineering (ACE), a new transdisciplinary program supported by the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering, and the School of Information and Computer Science. It emphasizes the development of cultural projects and practices involving real time computation and interaction.
For details and application information, please visit http://www.ace.uci.edu.
The successful candidates will play a core role in the ACE graduate program and will have the opportunity to be centrally involved in the research agendas of the Arts Layer of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (www.calit2.net). These include the visualization, simulation and interaction lab, the Game Culture and Technology Lab, and a (proposed) Center for Research in Interactive, Telematic and Immersive Culture.
The campus has a vigorous research and teaching presence in such areas as digital media arts, interactive installation, electronic music, embodied interaction, live performance, game culture and technology, computer graphics, immersive visualization and simulation, HCI, CSCW, robotics, sensors, wireless and ubiquitous computing. We are seeking candidates in any area of computing or engineering and the arts that will complement or bolster these emphases.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or Engineering, an MFA/MA in Digital Arts, dual degrees, or demonstrated equivalent experience, with strong research credentials as evidenced by scholarly publications, research projects and/or public exhibition and projects.
Applications should include a cover letter, a statement of purpose including a page each on pedagogy and research, an up-to-date CV, three recent publications, audio visual documentation of research/practice, and letters from three to five references. Documentation of projects can be submitted on CD (Mac/PC compatible) or VHS video. Websites and online projects can be submitted on CD. Electronic applications are highly preferable. Instructions for the submission of electronic applications can be found at: http://www.ics.uci.edu/about/jobs/faculty.php and questions regarding the process should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or:
