Assistant Professor of Interaction Design

University of Washington

The Division of Design in the School of Art at the University of Washington
in Seattle seeks applicants for a full-time, tenure-track position in
Interaction Design starting September 2005. We define interaction design as
a discipline concerned with the design of technologycentered experiences in
interactive media, software, products and information spaces.

It is an inherently cross-disciplinary field that incorporates concepts from
design (industrial design, visual communication design, architecture),
computer science and the social sciences (cognitive psychology, informatics
and communication).

This position will establish Interaction Design within the Division of
Design and will contribute to a series of interdisciplinary courses that
include students from visual communication design, industrial design,
computer science, informatics and others. Additionally, the faculty member
will contribute to teaching within common lower-division courses and in the
graduate program. As such, he/she must be capable of collaborating across
multiple design disciplines.

Demonstrated expertise in one or more of the following areas:
Human-computer interaction
Design theory
Screen-based communication
Experience design
Digital product design
