Human Centered Design 

The College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) (http://ist.psu.edu) at the Pennsylvania State University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Human Centered Design (HCD) to begin August 2017. This is the first step in a multiyear/multi-position expansion of our College. We are especially interested in the design of data, algorithms, and interactive techniques that are useful and transparent to people, ubiquitous information infrastructures, technologies, and applications, and technology-mediated complexity and nuance. Our College has other world-class research groups in Security and in Data Science, and we are eager to strengthen our collaborations with these groups. Candidates’ research should leverage design research, action research, and/or the maker movement, integrating the study of how people behave and interact with the creation of new designs and research through design. Candidates should be prepared to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in HCD.

In addition, interested applicants should submit the following material to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7711: (1) a cover letter, (2) a Curriculum Vitae, (3) 3-5 page research statement, (4) a one-page teaching statement, (5) contact information of 3-5 professional references.
