The School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence (SCAI) of the Ira A Fulton School of Engineering at Arizona State University seek a dynamic individual with expertise and applied and theoretical innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) and intelligent systems to join the transdisciplinary ASU at Mesa City Center emerging media technologies team for a full-time, tenure-track assistant professor appointment to begin in Fall 2022. In addition to its impact on research and innovation in AI-supported augmented and extended reality technologies, this position will also play a critical role in the development and delivery of new cross-disciplinary programs, including the MS in Digital Culture (Extended Reality Technologies) and the PhD/MS in Data Science, Analysis, and Engineering, all cross-disciplinary degree programs focused on emerging technologies and practices for public impact. The State of Arizona recently committed new investments towards the university in the areas of human performance, future communication technologies, extreme environments, and advanced manufacturing, within the context of its New Economy Initiative. Candidates with application interest in these key research areas are particularly encouraged to apply.
ASU's vibrant and innovative approaches to research and teaching are charting new paths in education and research in the public interest. ASU strongly encourages transdisciplinary collaboration and use-inspired, socially relevant research. The primary responsibilities for this jointly appointed position will be in bridging the programs of ASU at Mesa City Center, a cross-disciplinary trio of graduate programs bringing together researchers, designers, and engineers to innovate XR technologies, immersive experience design, and practices for public impact, with the relevant computational AI and big data programs in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded collaborative research program, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, undertake scientific and university service activities, engage stakeholders in the university and the community, and demonstrate national and international leadership in their field.
