Full-time Instructor (non-tenure-track) beginning January 2015. Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience and based on the University of Colorado pay scale.
The growing Technology, Arts, and Media Program (TAM: http://tam.colorado.edu) situated within the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado at Boulder seeks an instructor whose teaching, creative work and research demonstrates an in-depth understanding of digital media, design and visual communication. We seek candidates who have a broad understanding of technology, arts and media in addition to a specific area of expertise. Areas of interest include—but are not limited to—game design and development, physical computing, information visualization, electronic literature, digital sound music, and 3D design and animation. Successful candidates will engage students and faculty from diverse disciplines and actively participate in curriculum development and other programmatic initiatives that encourage curiosity, creativity, and community within the ATLAS Institute.
The Technology, Arts, and Media Program promotes creative work and research in information technologies and digital media within an interdisciplinary creative environment. Our curriculum model is based upon small studio courses that integrate hands-on project-based learning. Teaching responsibilities will include graduate seminars, undergraduate lectures, and studios. TAM students come from a diverse set of disciplines with a wide range of skill-sets and backgrounds.
We seek candidates who: are adept at technology, but are more than technologists; who understand the industrial reality of technology, but whose practice expands beyond it; who view technology as a tool in their creative work and research, but seek out unorthodox and unique approaches. In short, candidates who think creatively, critically and conceptually about technological practices are encouraged to apply.
A terminal degree in a relevant field and teaching experience is required.
