The Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University is pleased to announce an adjunct faculty opening to co-teach the Master of Human-Computer Interaction (MHCI) Capstone project.

During the summer semester between May and August adjuncts meet students on Thursday mornings from 8:00am to 11:30am and attend a Capstone faculty meeting from 11:30am to 1pm. Adjuncts facilitate a workshop or give a lecture 3-4 times during the spring semester and summer semester in a topic in which they are expert (e.g., planning research programs, user interface prototyping or project management). In the spring semester workshops/lectures are delivered on a Monday or Wednesday from 11am to 12:20pm. In the summer semester workshops are delivered on a Tuesday or Thursday from 4:00-5:20pm.

Adjuncts grade the teams they advise and write detailed feedback 3 times; at the mid-semester, at the end of the spring semester and at the end of the summer semester. Adjuncts are expected to respond to student emails within 36 hours Monday through Friday. Occasionally adjuncts meet individual students at a time that is convenient for both.
