Department of Media and Information Faculty

The Department of Media and Information (M&I) at Michigan State University is home to a dynamic, interdisciplinary faculty who are internationally recognized for their cutting-edge research on the design, uses and implications of information and communication technologies (ICTs). We invite applications for two separate positions: (1) an open-rank faculty tenure system position (with potential for an endowed professorship) and (2) an assistant professor faculty tenure system position.

The successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in a relevant field. Review of applicants will begin December 6, 2019. The expected start date for both positions is August 16, 2020.

Open Rank Tenure System Faculty
We welcome applications from emerging and established scholars in information science or related disciplines whose research answers significant questions about technology, and its impacts on individuals, groups, and society. We are especially interested in applicants whose research interests complement our department’s strengths in: human-computer interaction (HCI), information communication technology and development (ICTD), information systems, social computing, game studies, digital inequality and impacts of ICTs, and health informatics. Scholars who examine topics concerning diversity and its relationship to ICT design and/or use are encouraged to apply.

Outstanding candidates may be considered for a Brandt Endowed Professorship. Ellis (Ned) Brandt was a graduate of MSU’s School of Journalism, and a prominent Michigan philanthropist. The Brandt Endowed Professorship offers a competitive salary and annual research allowance. The ideal candidate is an exceptional scholar with: a successful track record of securing external research funding; experience and interest in mentoring faculty; and excellent collaboration skills. Publishing in peer-reviewed venues in relevant fields is expected, as is teaching and advising students in the Department’s undergraduate and graduate programs

Assistant Professor Tenure System Faculty
We are seeking an innovative, dynamic individual to fill a full-time, tenure system position at the assistant professor level who is interested in human-centered approaches to design, and engages with emerging technologies, such as (but not limited to) games, interactive media, virtual reality, and augmented reality. We value interests in socially relevant topics and improving people’s lives. Our ideal candidate integrates both “arts” and “sciences” in their work while recognizing the importance of inclusivity.

Candidates will be expected to gain visibility through peer-reviewed academic research publications and/or juried creative works. Given our strong interdisciplinary culture, we welcome applications from individuals from a diverse range of disciplinary and methodological traditions who thrive in a vibrant academic environment. Faculty members are also expected to pursue external funding to support their research and/or creative activity. In addition, candidates will teach in our undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as advise graduate students on projects, theses, and dissertations.
