The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) invites applications for multiple faculty positions at all ranks in Computational Media and Arts (CMA) (https://hkust-cma.org/ ) for its new campus in Guangzhou (GZ). The CMA thrust area focuses on art creation and visual communication with emerging technologies. It promotes the interplay of art and technology and exploits the most advanced technologies for art creation and visual communication with a social impact.
Composed of faculty and students from both arts and engineering backgrounds, CMA is interested in candidates who can develop an interdisciplinary curriculum and pursue high impact art-related research in a science, technology and engineering oriented academic environment.
Candidates with an art background should hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field, plus an active media art exhibition history with a sustained creative research practice in a related area. Priority will be given to artists who are able to teach a range of skills, including digital and innovative approaches; showing an explicitly experiential, experimental and expansive outlook on digital arts making; commanding a deep understanding and active creation in one or more areas in computation media arts.
Candidates with an engineering background should hold a doctoral degree in related fields and have demonstrated ability to pursue high impact research in areas related to computation media.
We invites candidates whose research and practice fall within one or more areas in computational media arts to apply, including:
●     Visualization and Data Art
●      Virtual/augmented/mixed reality (VR, AR, XR);
●      Interactive media and games
●      Physical computing, electronics, and robotics;
