Industry Assistant/Associate Professor at NYU in VR/MS/AR and Design
We seek candidates with a disciplinary focus in virtual, augmented, mediated, or mixed reality, spatial computing, or motion capture. You may work with the above technologies in the context of expanded cinema, interactive narrative, game design, or other relevant fields.

Industry Assistant Professor, Integrated Digital Media in Design
We seek candidates for this position with a disciplinary focus in design and visual communication. You should be working in visual design fields (graphic design, print and publishing, typography), critical design research, data journalism, information design, persuasive design, or another relevant field.

For either position, you should be an excellent teacher with a strong commitment to student mentorship and experience in all levels of teaching, from introductory undergraduates to graduate students. You must have a terminal degree in digital media or a related field and an outstanding record of artistic practice, technical innovation, and/or scholarship in your areas of focus. We especially seek faculty colleagues who have a hybrid academic background (e.g., degrees in engineering and arts, humanities, or design), and whose work is concerned with themes of advocacy/activism, social/civic engagement, cultural/environmental sustainability, design justice, and/or media equity.

The Integrated Digital Media (IDM) program in the Tandon School of Engineering is a place that fosters creative practice, design research and multidisciplinary experimentation with emerging media technologies. Situated on NYU’s Brooklyn campus and with access to a world-class facility at the NYU Media and Games Network (MAGNET), IDM nurtures our students’ expertise through experimental creative practice, technical acumen, and rigorous process. We use technologies to support human values and interdependence, building a field of practice that combines the ethics of an arts practice with the technical rigor of engineering.
