The Department of Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media at Michigan State University is seeking an innovative, dynamic individual to fill a full-time, tenure stream position at the assistant professor level in the field of games. Whether designed purely to entertain or to also achieve more "serious" purposes, games have the potential to impact players' beliefs, knowledge, attitudes, emotions, cognitive abilities, physical and mental health, and behavior. The faculty member hired for this position is expected to engage in scholarship aimed at understanding and transforming games in meaningful ways.
Candidates will join an enthusiastic, multidisciplinary faculty and a program in game design and development that was rated #5 in the nation by Princeton Review in 2011. Experience in the field may take the form of scholarly research and/or creative practice. Expertise or experience in other disciplines is also welcome.
