The College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) (http://ist.psu.edu) at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for an Open-Rank, Tenure-Line Faculty position in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) beginning in Fall 2023 at University Park.
For this search, we seek exceptional candidates with high-quality research and publications to strengthen and complement our current research programs. We particularly seek scholars who transformatively enhance objectives and approaches to social justice through the design of digital tools and infrastructures. We are interested in actionable approaches that strengthen social justice processes and outcomes through design research, and show how social justice processes and outcomes can expand from remediation of past and present social injustice to an inclusive and equitable re-envisioning of human possibilities. Candidates will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses including residential, online, or hybrid courses.
Competitive applicants for the rank of Assistant Professor will possess a Ph.D. in information sciences and technology or related fields before beginning employment at Penn State, a strong potential for developing an externally funded, collaborative, interdisciplinary research program, and the potential to contribute to the college’s teaching mission. Candidates seeking the rank of Associate Professor should have the same qualifications as the assistant professor, as well as a strong track record of scholarly achievement, external funding, and demonstrated success in teaching and service. Candidates for Full Professor should have the same qualifications as the associate professor, as well as a track record of research publications, funding, teaching, and service that distinguishes them, nationally or internationally, as leaders in HCI broadly defined.
