College Station/Texas A&M University

The School of Performance, Visualization & Fine Arts (PVFA), Texas A&M University, invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track, open-rank faculty position in the Visual Computing and Computational Media (VCCM) Section. This position will be a nine-month, full-time, academic appointment, with expected start date of Fall 2023. A senior candidate may be considered for a leadership position.

We are looking for candidates with research directions in all areas of visual computing, such as 3D modeling and animation, visual effects, human-computer interaction, data visualization, computer vision, extended reality, robotics, acoustics in virtual environments, and fabrication. Rank and tenure status will be based on prior experience. VCCM is the focus for scientific and technical research and teaching in PVFA. The school’s strength is in the merging of art and science across a broad range of creative pursuits.

The successful applicant will teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, advise and mentor graduate students, develop an independent, externally funded research program, participate in all aspects of the School’s activities, and serve the professional community. A candidate selected for a leadership position would also have commensurate administrative responsibilities.

The School of Performance, Visualization & Fine Arts is a new School within the Texas A&M University System and has a diverse and dynamic mission with 60 faculty and over 15 staff members and a projected exponential growth in the next 5 years. The school was formed from three departments/programs spread across the university: the Department of Visualization, the Department of Performance Studies and the Dance Science Program. The mission of the school places a heavy emphasis on faculty and student collaboration and interdisciplinary work in both scholarly and creative research. Texas A&M University leadership has charged the new school with developing innovative research and creative works, public performances, and degree offerings at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels that build upon our strength in merging art and science. The new school is projected to move into a new, $175m state-of-the-art visual and performing arts center. Construction is slated to begin in 2024.


A Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field is required. Strong written and verbal communication skills are required as is an enthusiasm for applying technical, mathematical, and scientific expertise in collaboration across the range of artistic, technical, and humanistic disciplines represented in the school.
