Faculty Position at CMU


Job Description

We're hiring for Tenure-Track and Teaching-Track Faculty Positions.

The Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) in the School of Computer Science (SCS) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) seeks candidates for one or more tenure-track and teaching-track faculty appointments to begin in Fall 2024.

We enthusiastically encourage applicants across all areas, fields, methodological backgrounds, and disciplines related to human-computer interaction (HCI) to apply. We will consider candidates at Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level on either track.   

For the tenure-track positions, we welcome applications from candidates with research expertise in any area of HCI and Design. Successful candidates should have a demonstrated track record in research, strong academic credentials, a history of or interest in interdisciplinary research and undergraduate and graduate teaching, and a terminal graduate degree appropriate to their discipline.

For the teaching-track positions, successful candidates should have an outstanding track record in the practice or teaching of HCI and/or Design, with strong knowledge of user experience (UX) methods. Also considered will be user interface programming skills using modern toolkits, academic credentials, a history of or interest in interdisciplinary collaborations, undergraduate and graduate teaching, and a relevant academic degree. HCII teaching faculty typically carry a load of 8 classes annually that may be offset with service on committees and other other HCII initiatives.
