Subject: Job Ad for CMU HCII

Hi Barry,

I mentioned to you previously that I'd send a job ad
for our department, please see below. Also, please feel
free to share widely with others.

As you already know, our department is unusual in that it
combines computer science, behavioral and social psychology,
as well as interaction design. We are also broadly interested
in all aspects of research that involve people and computers.


The Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University 
<http://www.hcii.cmu.edu/> prides itself on its record of innovative 
development and understanding of technology to better the condition of 
individuals and society. We seek more than one new faculty member who will 
continue and broaden this tradition, through a program of cutting-edge research 
into the theory, substance, methods, and/or applications of HCI. Applicants are 
welcome from the diverse backgrounds that will further our goal. What is 
required is a strong record of research and teaching and the desire to work 
with our eminent faculty toward the HCII's goals. We expect to hire at the 
assistant professor level but will consider more senior candidates as well. 
In addition to the positions described above, we are also searching for a 
faculty member to hold a dual appointment between the HCII and Carnegie 
Mellon?s Entertainment Technology Center. The ETC (http://www.etc.cmu.edu/ 
founded by Randy Pausch and Don Marinelli in 1998 as a joint program between 
the College of Fine Arts and the School of Computer Science) is focused on 
interactive entertainment across a variety of fields with the goal of designing 
experiences that educate, engage and inspire. Together, we seek a faculty 
member with a strong record of research, development and teaching in 
transformational games for social and educational impact. The successful 
candidate for this faculty position will hold a joint appointment at the HCII 
and the ETC. 
The application process: Applications must be in PDF format and include (1) 
curriculum vitae, (2) research and teaching interest statements, (3) 1-3 
representative papers, and (4) the names and email addresses of three or more 
individuals who have been asked to provide letters of reference. In addition, 
applicants should arrange for reference letters to be sent directly to the 
Faculty Search Committee at <hcii-faculty-search2012 at cs.cmu.edu>. The Search 
Committee will not directly request letters. Please reference the HCII in your 
cover letter for the general position, and HCII/ETC for the joint position. 
Applications and references should be submitted via email to: 
<hcii-faculty-search2012 at cs.cmu.edu>. Incomplete applications will not be 
processed. Applications should indicate citizenship and, for non-US citizens, 
current visa status. The HCII will begin reviewing applications on November 
1st, 2012.

Carnegie Mellon University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer 
committed to excellence through diversity and strongly encourages applications 
from women, minorities, and other under-represented groups. CMU is responsive 
to the needs of dual career couples and is dedicated to work-life balance 
through an array of family-friendly policies.
