New Media to hire new faculty member in fall 2013
University of Maine approves a new tenure-track professor for New Media and Intermedia
The New Media Department is excited to announce an opening for a new faculty position to begin fall 2013. This tenure-track position will serve both the 150-odd undergraduates of this innovative department as well as the Intermedia MFA program.

IMRC renderingThe faculty member will be able to take advantage of a number of exciting recent developments in this award-winning department, including the just-opened IMRC (Innovative Media Research and Commercialization) center, whose cutting-edge facilities include state-of-the-art 3d printing, audio/video, and physical computing labs.

The new faculty member will also be encouraged to contribute to new departmental initiatives such as a peer-to-peer digital badge program, an across-the-curriculum HTML5 initiative, and the Digital Curation graduate program launched last fall.

NMD classroom

The successful candidate will have an established career in one or more areas of New Media, such as participatory media, interactive technologies, mobile apps, physical computing, or Web development, as well as work in, or knowledge of, Intermedia.

Interaction on New Media NightEncouraged to forge collaborations with our existing New Media faculty and students, as well as across campus and with communities beyond, this hire will augment the department's collaborative, interdisciplinary character. Its already diverse faculty hail from art, engineering, journalism, and literature.

Thanks to its innovative sequence structure, New Media's curriculum trains undergraduates in flexibility of thought together with hands-on investigations in specific technologies.

Interaction on New Media NightThe program culminates in an ambitious, self-directed year-long capstone. Past New Media capstones have included cell phone cinema festivals, peer-to-peer photography, datagloves for the deaf, and real-time Twitter analysis of US elections.

Anyone interested in applying for the position should follow the instructions here.
