Job Summary

The School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication (ATEC) at the University of Texas Dallas invites applications for part-time lecturers to teach courses part-time. Desired areas of expertise include but are not limited to: digital game creation, computer animation, critical media studies, communication studies, design, project management, and writing in digital contexts. Successful candidates could teach courses such as
• Computer Imaging
• Design I
• Digital Content Design
• Digital Video Production
• Interaction Design I
• Internet Studio I
• Project Management for Arts and Technology
• Writing and Research for Emerging Media

Created in 2015, the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication merged two long-running programs at UTD: the program in Arts and Technology and the program in Emerging Media and Communication. As a School, ATEC serves more than 1,500 students, including 100 master’s students (MA and MFA) and 40 doctoral students. Students are taught to be conversant across the discourses of art / science / design / engineering / humanities. They are expected to gain foundational knowledge in multiple disciplinary areas of expertise. They learn how to engage with different modes of knowledge production, different methods of analysis, and different research and creative practices.

With the leadership of inaugural Dean Anne Balsamo, successful applicants will welcome the opportunities and challenges of creating a multidisciplinary school that values collegial open-mindedness and supports collaboration across differences. ATEC faculty include artists, designers, computer scientists, social scientists, cultural theorists, and reflective practitioners who seek to collaborate on intentional future-making through the creation of new cultural forms, the design of new technological experiences, the production of new knowledge, and the transformation of the culture industries.

This search aims to help create a diverse faculty body and seeks applicants who contribute to equal opportunity at UT Dallas. We particularly welcome candidates who place race and ethnicity, diasporic concerns, underrepresented populations, or social inequalities at the center of their research and teaching interests, as well as faculty who might bring to their research diverse perspectives that stem in part from their non-traditional educational backgrounds or from their personal experiences as members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

Review of applications will begin immediately. Appointment will begin in January 2017 for the spring term or August 2017 for the fall term. Indication of gender and ethnicity for affirmative action statistical purposes is requested as part of the application but not required.

These positions are filled on an as-needed basis, and applications remain eligible for consideration through August 31, 2017.

A master’s degree in the academic discipline is required to teach at the undergraduate level. A terminal degree in the academic discipline is required to teach at the graduate level; a master’s degree (or higher) plus a record of distinguished accomplishments and appropriate certifications may be allowed with the Provost’s approval.

A terminal degree (MFA or Ph.D.) in a related academic field is preferred. Preference is given to applicants with at least two years’ excellent teaching experience at an institution similar to UT Dallas or extensive professional background in a closely related field.
