Open Rank Faculty Position in Interaction Design
The University of Texas at Austin: College of Fine Arts: School of Design
and Creative Technologies
Austin, TX
application deadline: 4 January 2019

*Description*
The Department of Design in the School of Design and Creative Technologies
at The University of Texas at Austin (UT) seeks a faculty colleague with a
focus in interaction design. We encourage applications from both academics
and seasoned practitioners eager to join a team of whole-hearted
collaborators in reinventing design education for the twenty-first
century.- Salary is competitive; rank and tenure status are commensurate
with experience.

With the support of College of Fine Arts leadership, we are reimagining our
coursework, curriculum, and structure from the point of view that design is
more powerful and informed when practiced in concert with other
disciplines. Course development and teaching responsibilities in our
fast-growing programs may include the following:
- introductory courses in user interface design and other forms of
interaction for both design majors and curious non-majors from engineering,
business, computer science, medicine, and other fields
- introductory, intermediate, and advanced undergraduate and graduate
courses in interaction design
- senior capstone project and exhibition courses
- thematic/special topics courses in your area of expertise at both the
undergraduate and graduate levels
- interdisciplinary team-taught courses that enroll students from multiple
design specializations and/or university departments
- graduate thesis supervision and/or committee service

In addition to teaching, the full-time faculty in interaction design will
participate in administrative and student service activities, including
development of new curricula. Faculty appointed with tenure or to the
tenure track are also expected to maintain an active agenda of scholarly
research and/or creative professional practice; non-tenure-track faculty
are encouraged to do so as well.

The Department of Design

The design program at UT, formerly a division of the Department of Art and
Art History, became the Department of Design in 2017 and combined forces
with the recently created Department of Arts and Entertainment
Technologies, the Center for Integrated Design, and the Design Institute
for Health to form the new School of Design and Creative Technologies
(SDCT). The move to SDCT has enabled the design program to expand its
enrollment and course offerings to meet growing demand from majors and
non-majors, and to develop industry partnerships.

The University of Texas at Austin (UT)

The University of Texas at Austin is a flagship, comprehensive research
university of over 50,000 students that is routinely ranked in the top 50
universities globally by U.S. News and World Report, Times Higher
Education, and the Center for World University Rankings. UT is located in
Austin, the capital of Texas, a city justly renowned for its vibrant
cultural life and its thriving creative and tech industries. Austin is
routinely included in top-ten lists of best US cities for new college
grads, for young professionals, for future job growth, and for outdoor
activities, urban forests, and family friendliness.

*Qualifications*

Candidates for these positions must:
- have a strong portfolio of recent design work, including but not limited
to interaction design
- be proficient in industry-standard software for both prototyping and

- have earned a terminal degree in their field, OR demonstrate equivalent

- have a record of working productively and collegially with people of
diverse disciplines, ranks, races, ethnicities, nationalities, gender

- are familiar with contemporary interaction design workflows, concepts,
and methods of production, including coding
- are practicing in the areas of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality
(VR), experiential environments, and/or creative coding
- can demonstrate (through degrees earned, portfolio of work, writings, or
course syllabuses) engagement with one or more of the following areas:
design for inclusion;
design research, including design ethnography or design anthropology;
public interest design or design for social impact; design ethics
