Tenured Faculty Position at MIT in Comparative Media Studies

MIT's Program in Comparative Media Studies seeks applications for a
tenured position beginning in September 2010. A PhD and an extensive
record of publication, research activity and leadership are expected.
We encourage applicants from a wide array of disciplinary backgrounds.
The successful candidate will teach and guide research in one or more
of the Program's dimensions of comparativity (historical, methodological,
cultural) across media forms. Expertise in the cultural and social implications
of established media forms (film, television, audio and visual cultures, print)
is as important as scholarship in one or more emerging areas such as
games, social media, new media literacies, participatory culture, software
studies, IPTV, and transmedia storytelling.

The position involves teaching graduate and undergraduate courses,
developing and guiding collaborative research activities, and participating
in the intellectual and creative leadership of the Program and the Institute.
Candidates should demonstrate a record of effective teaching and thesis
supervision, significant research/creative activity, relevant administrative
experience, and international recognition.

CMS offers SB and SM programs and maintains a full roster of research
initiatives and outreach activities [see http://cms.mit.edu ]. The program
embraces the notion of comparativity and collaboration, and works across
MIT's various schools, and between MIT and the larger media landscape.

MIT is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

Applications consisting of a curriculum vita, a statement of teaching
philosophy and experience, a statement of current and future research plans,
selected major publications, and names of suggested references should be
submitted by November 1, 2009 to:

Professor William Uricchio
Director, Comparative Media Studies
MIT 14N-207
77 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02139 USA
