About the Opportunity
Northeastern University's College of Arts, Media and Design (CAMD) invites applications for open-rank, tenured or tenure-track positions in the thematic area of Food, Water, Energy Nexus. Within this broad theme, we are particularly interested candidates with expertise in the communication of scientific data, design for information and visualization as it connects with the Food-Water-Energy Nexus, justice-centered participatory methods, energy consumption and technology in cross-cultural contexts, and future use architecture and preservation in design.
The position will have a primary tenure home in one of CAMD's six schools and departments (Architecture, Art + Design, Communication Studies, Journalism, Music, and Theater). Joint appointments and/or affiliations with other colleges and institutes at Northeastern University are strongly encouraged and will be considered as appropriate. We have a particular interest in candidates with a home in Architecture, Communication Studies, Media and Screen Studies, Journalism, and Design/Data Viz.
Faculty members at Northeastern are expected to develop independent research programs that attract external funding; teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate level; supervise students and postdocs in their area of research; and participate in service to the department, university, and discipline. Candidates interested in conducting high-impact research programs and committed to teaching excellence in the broad areas above are encouraged to apply.
A PhD or terminal degree (e.g. MFA, MArch) in the candidate's field (architecture, communication studies, media and screen studies, journalism, design, data visualization, or a field relevant to the home department) is required by the appointment start date. The College is seeking to give excellent candidates across all demographics of society the opportunity, resources, and support to establish innovative and impactful research careers. This includes candidates at the earliest stages of their careers as well as those who are more established. For select candidates, there may be an option of a 1- to 2-year CAMD funded, mentored post-doc Fellow position, to allow candidates to ramp up their research programs before starting on the tenure track.
The College of Arts, Media and Design is a collaborative, diverse community, acting as a catalyst for research, inspiration, and discovery across the University. It brings together a unique combination of disciplines, including Architecture, Art + Design, Communication Studies, Journalism, Media and Screen Studies, Music, and Theatre, and is home to three interdisciplinary research centers: the Center for the Arts, the Center for Design, and the Center for Communication, Media Innovation, and Social Change.
