The Interactive Arts and Media Department of Columbia College Chicago seeks applicants for a full-time tenure-track or tenured faculty position in Immersive and Interactive Media with a focus on Extended Reality (XR) beginning August 2019. Successful candidates will demonstrate technical and critical expertise in their field, matched by a vibrant, complementary practice that directly contributes to the broader portfolio of applied media research and related civic tech initiatives in the School of Media Arts. The department serves as a research and development hub for the School, connecting emerging media forms to other areas of scholarly inquiry and practice, including film, television, audio arts and journalism. We are interested in candidates who can further the cross-industrial application of new technologies, and develop new applied practices that connect the liberal and creative arts, media, design, technology, programming and information science. We are looking for creative technologists, well-versed in crafting around intention.

Ideal candidates will have produced immersive media experiences that demonstrate the ability to leverage cutting-edge production technologies and design approaches. For this position we define immersive media to include software-driven, interactive experiences like real-time 3D, VR/AR, immersive video and audio, and location-based or location-aware content. Candidates must demonstrate substantive creative and collaborative work in any of the contributing creative media disciplines that may inform XR moving ahead. Candidates are also encouraged to emphasize any work in the areas of civic media or mission-driven content. [Read more]
