I have received the following notice from my alma mater University of California, Santa Barbara:
The Media Arts and Technology Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level, starting July 1, 2011. The department seeks candidates who will establish a vigorous research and teaching program in computer graphics, scientific/information visualization, or a related field applicable to immersive, interactive, and distributed environments, working with high-dimensional data generated in scientific and artistic domains. The successful candidate will be expected to collaborate with artists, engineers, and scientists in an interdisciplinary environment of research, creative work, and teaching.
Media Arts and Technology (MAT) is a transdisciplinary graduate program at UCSB in both the College of Letters and Science (Division of Humanities and Fine Arts) and the College of Engineering. MAT offers Master’s and PhD degrees and has approximately 40 graduate students and 10 faculty, several with joint appointments in engineering and arts departments. Areas of expertise include human-computer interaction, electronic music and sound design, computational visual and spatial arts, and multimedia signal processing. Offices and labs are housed in the new California Nanosystems Institute building at UCSB, which includes a unique research facility called the Allosphere, a three-story spherical immersive environment. Additional information about the department can be found at http://www.mat.ucsb.edu.
Applicants are expected to hold a doctoral degree in Media Arts and Sciences, Computer Science, or a closely related field, have demonstrated excellence in research, and have a strong commitment to teaching and interdisciplinary scholarship and/or creative activity. The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service. Primary consideration will be given to applications received by February 1, 2011; however, the position will remain open until filled. Applications must include a CV, research and teaching statements, and at least three letters of reference. See http://www.mat.ucsb.edu/recruit for information on how to apply.
