Northeastern University’s College of Arts, Media and Design (CAMD) invites applications for open-rank (tenured or tenure-track) faculty positions in generative AI for creative applications in music, communications and design fields. We seek applicants with a record of innovation in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), a strong background in working with the algorithms and models pivotal to generative AI, and whose research engages critically and creatively with such fields. We are particularly interested in candidates in Generative AI and Sound Design and in Conversation Design.
Faculty members at Northeastern are expected to develop independent research programs that attract external funding; teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate level and contribute to innovative curricular paths; oversee students and postdocs in their area of research; and participate in service to the department, university, and discipline. Candidates interested in conducting high-impact research programs and committed to teaching excellence in the broad areas outlined above are encouraged to apply.
A PhD or terminal degree (e.g. MFA) in the candidate’s field is required by the appointment start date. The College is seeking to give excellent candidates across all demographics of society the opportunity, resources, and support to establish innovative and impactful research careers. This includes candidates at the earliest stages of their careers as well as those who are more established. For select candidates, there may be an option of a one- to two-year CAMD funded, mentored postdoc Fellow position, to allow candidates to ramp up their research programs before starting on the tenure track.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, and contact information for at least three references. In your cover letter, please discuss your research interests and activities and how they fit into the interdisciplinary scope of this position, your teaching expertise and interests, and how you can support our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment for faculty, staff, and students. Applications received by December 3, 2023, will receive full consideration.
