Tenure Track Faculty Positions within The Media Laboratory

At the MIT Media Laboratory, we are looking for new faculty members who 
will enable significant leaps beyond our existing relationships with 
technology – individuals ready to radically change life in the digital 
age for the better.

Candidates for Media Lab faculty positions should be individuals who 
would thrive in a collaborative, innovation-driven research environment 
that integrates multiple disciplines and encourages extreme creativity. 
Applicants should have demonstrated expertise in the design, 
exploration, and implementation of emerging technologies in areas such 
as: healthcare; massive, multiplayer online systems; computing for the 
developing world; biomachinery; learning and creativity; robotic 
systems; or other humanistic endeavors in technology development.

We are looking for applicants with strong communication and leadership 
skills who have a passion for people. Responsibilities include: 
initiating a research program, supervising a team of graduate and 
undergraduate researchers, and teaching (graduate and undergraduate). 
Candidates should have a doctorate (or equivalent), a strong record of 
research, and teaching experience at the university level. Appointments
