Tenure Track Assistant/Associate Professor, Information Design and Corporate Communication
Job Description Summary Bentley University invites applications for a tenure-track position in the areas of user experience, human-computer interaction (HCI), product design, or related fields (e.g., psychology, social psychology, cognitive science) to start in fall 2023. We seek a creative scholar who would join the interdisciplinary faculty of Bentley's internationally renowned user experience graduate program. All UX/HF/HCI related disciplines will be considered. Preference will be given to candidates whose research and teaching interests complement the current foci of VR and haptic interfaces, including the following areas of expertise: voice user interfaces (VUIs), conversational interfaces (chatbots, virtual assistants, virtual agents), emerging and intelligent interfaces, or related areas. We are also open to candidates from industry.
The reputation of our graduate program is grounded in educating leaders in user experience research and design. Central to our program's success is the strong connections it has forged with leading technology groups throughout the United States and internationally. We support that network with programs on our main campus, San Francisco and online. Further reinforcing this reputation is our well-known User Experience Center, a research and consulting group contracting with tech organizations around the world. Finally, most of our classes have research and design problems sponsored by startups, non-profit organizations, and large tech companies. Being part of a business university, our graduate program has a strong focus on the strategic role of the user experience in the competitive positioning of products in the marketplace and fostering continuous product innovation.
