Dear Design Community,

Please consider using your social networking skills to get the word out on
our IxD faculty position. Any assistance you can offer in this manner would
be greatly appreciated.

The job description is below and can also be found on our website
at.<http://www.design.cmu.edu/show_job.php?id=811>

Warmest regards,
Deborah


IxD Faculty Position
 
The School
Carnegie Mellon¹s School of Design is one of the oldest design programs in
the United States, offering undergraduate, masters and PhD degrees in
design. Located in one of the premier research universities in the world,
our School is noted for its core degrees in interaction design,
communication design, and industrial design, as well as its
transdisciplinary masters degrees with the departments of English
(Communication, Planning and Information Design) and Engineering (Masters in
Product Development) and BHA, BSA and BCSA undergraduate degree programs
which enable students to design hybrid majors between Design and the
humanities, natural sciences, and computer science.
 
We believe design is central to constructing a better future. In our
teaching and research, we employ design methods that synthesize an
understanding of people and technological innovation in order to envision
products, services, systems, and environments that meet human needs and
desires. In 2009 the School began a re-visioning process that places design
for society and the environment at the heart of the program, educating
designers as transdisciplinary problem-solvers, and as catalysts for
positive change. The School will launch several new master's degree
concentrations as well as executive and continuing education programs over
the next two years, providing several opportunities to expand its visionary
and collaborative faculty.
 
The Position
We seek a dynamic individual with a balance of interaction design practice
and scholarly design research experience to serve our Master¹s and PhD
students. We will consider specialties including, but not limited to, the
following:
 
€ Industrial/Interaction design with a focus on physical and tangible
computing, basic electronics, and formgiving
 
€ Information/Interaction design with a focus on designing for web and
mobile, information architecture, and social and cloud computing
 
€ Service/Strategic design with expertise in design synthesis, diagramming
and blueprinting, facilitation, and fundamental research in service design
 
€ New media/Interaction design with a focus on motion graphics, narrative
and storytelling, and audio design
 
€ Strategic design and design planning
 
€ Design theory
 
€ Domain expertise such as healthcare, eldercare, public policy, or
sustainability
 
 
A candidate with a strong interaction aesthetic, an orientation to research,
and skills in problem framing is sought to teach and conduct research within
and outside of the School of Design. We are looking for an individual who
pushes current boundaries and explores new territories; thus the ability to
forecast, identify and foster new areas of design research, experimentation
and innovation is key. The position will involve collaboration with faculty
at the School of Design as well as other departments across the University.
 
 
Qualifications
We seek a versatile designer with a significant record of professional
practice, teaching, research publication, and/or public exhibitions.
Candidates should have a Master¹s or PhD and professional design practice
experience. University-level teaching experience is desirable. Carnegie
Mellon University is an Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunities employer
committed to diversity.
 
 
Application to Include
         Letter of application with design practice, research and teaching
philosophies
         Curriculum Vitae
         Portfolio of work (see below)
         Contact information, including phone numbers for 3 references (No
recommendation letters are required at this time)
 
Work Samples
         Please provide a PDF containing up to 20 standard-size pages of
visual and written documentation of your work. This PDF may also serve as a
guide to additional online, interactive and/or video materials.
         Provide the URL of your web site and your Twitter handle, if
applicable. Sites will be viewed on Safari/Mac OSX with standard
installations of Java and Flash. Include instructions for viewing select
