Call for Applications Digital Futures Initiative, Chair

OCAD University is Canada's largest specialized University of art,  
media and design.  Located in the Discovery District of downtown  
Toronto and at the centre of the city's dynamic cultural activities,  
OCAD has 3500 students and over three hundred faculty members.  
Committed to excellence and contemporary approaches to education,  
OCAD University currently offers 12 programs leading to the BFA and  
BDes, five programs leading to a Masters degree and will soon offer  
three BAs. It is building new interdisciplinary programs. The  
University has experienced remarkable growth over the past five years  
and requires outstanding creative researchers/practitioners and  
gifted teachers to join OCAD in an exciting period of institutional  
development and opportunity.

Drawing on faculty from across the University and working in  
collaboration with a broad range of Canadian and international  
private sector and public sector partners, the Digital Futures  
Initiative (DFI) is a set of new cross-disciplinary programs,  
research, and innovation activities currently being developed at  
OCADU. Minors, a major and a suite of graduate programs will provide  
learning opportunities in digital art, media and design, linking this  
knowledge to emerging technologies with applications in fields such  
as art/design and science, sustainability, health and wellness,  
accessibility, diversity, and global innovation and business  
development. OCADU has launched a research program in many fields of  
digital endeavours and related disciplines, and has recently secured  
significant funding to begin the construction of a series of  
dedicated research laboratories. Faculty cross-appointed in the DFI  
will be engaged in all facets of planning and utilization of these  
laboratories.

The DFI Program Development and Selection Committee, comprising  
representatives from the Faculties of Art, Design, and Liberal  
Studies, invite applications for the following position:
