As part of an ambitious plan to expand interdisciplinary work in computer science and other fields, Northwestern University seeks to hire a new faculty member whose work focuses on the intersection of Computer Science and Journalism/Media and has the potential to drive change and transformation in the field of journalism.
We invite candidates to apply for a new position as Professor of Computer Science & Journalism at the Associate or adjunct Professor level. The search is open to academic candidates as well as distinguished technology professionals. We are interested in candidates who have a track record of success in researching, developing and deploying technology significant to journalism and media, as well as research interests in a computer science discipline such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Human-Computer Interaction or Knowledge Management.
Candidates whose background is primarily in the media or technology industry should be able to demonstrate practice building or leading the development of software that addresses the needs of journalists, publishers and/or media consumers. Academic candidates should have a research agenda at the intersection of computer science and journalism, and practice developing technologies for media practitioners or consumers.
Given Northwestern’s longstanding commitment to interdisciplinary work in these fields, an interest in teaching students from both journalism and computer science -- and fostering collaboration between them -- is critical.
The goal of the CS + X initiative in general and the CS + Journalism effort in particular is the transformational integration of CS with other fields. Preferred candidates are expected to work between fields in partnership with non-technologists with the goal of promoting shared knowledge and research progress at the intersection. With the dual focus of research and education, candidates will work across schools to help create an environment of cross-functional cooperation and coordination between disciplines. In line with this, we are certainly interested in researchers with joint degrees but are flexible with regard to the nature of candidates’ core education. Our goal in this search is to hire new faculty who will have positions in both the McCormick School of Engineering and the Medill School of Journalism. The driver behind this goal is the further development of the partnership that already exists between the two schools.
Northwestern is a world-leading research and teaching university with an unrivaled combination of excellent schools that provide extraordinary opportunities for collaboration across a wide variety of disciplines. Located just outside of Chicago – a diverse and culturally vibrant world-class city – Northwestern faculty have ample opportunities to connect with the city’s growing technology sector.
We encourage candidates to send applications as soon as possible. Applications received by December 15, 2017 will be given full consideration. However, the positions will remain open until filled. candidates should submit (1) a cover letter indicating rank applied for, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) three to five references (4) statements of research and teaching interests, and (5) two representative publications. For general questions about the search or application assistance post submission, contact E-Mail: facsearch@eecs.northwestern.edu
