The Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science is searching for technical teaching track faculty with experience exploring new technologies within real-world industry settings and applying them throughout the human-centered design process. The qualified candidate is a user experience engineer (UXE), creative technologist, design technologist, or another hybrid role with a proven track record of continuously exploring and learning new technologies in order to innovate, make new user experiences tangible, and create new value by embracing the ever-increasing pace of technology change. HCII teaching faculty typically carry a load of 8 classes annually that may be offset with service on committees and other HCII initiatives.
We are particularly interested in people with significant industry experience who build and test as a primary method to design human-centered products and services. The ideal candidate will have strengths in technical prototyping, front-end/UI development, cross-platform app frameworks, user research methods, product/service assessment, and data-driven innovation.
While there is an immediate opening with a potential late Fall start (to be prepared to teach classes in January), we anticipate ongoing teaching track needs in upcoming years as we expand our offerings. If the current timing is not right, but you would like to start a conversation with us about future opportunities, please apply and note as such in your cover letter. We want to hear from you!
