3D Digital Design Tenure Track Position
Nov 05, 2015
The School of Design in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology invites applicants to apply for a tenure track Assistant Professor position to teach in the 3D Digital Design program.
The 3D Digital Design program is seeking applicants to teach primarily 3D Digital Design courses using Maya and real-time design software (Unreal and/or Unity) within a design curriculum, but expertise in other graphics software is important as well. The ability to teach a variety of content using Maya (modeling, lighting, shading, rendering, scripting, etc.) is particularly important. Courses focus on 3D digital skills as they relate to design. Utilizing research, experimentation, critical thinking, creativity, interdisciplinary collaboration and a range of problem solving principles, students learn to solve complex visual problems within the constraints of time, space, budget, and technology. Emphasis is also placed on delivery of content in immersive environments with full body input. In addition to a full teaching load each term, other responsibilities include advising students, assisting in curriculum development, participating in research, scholarship and creative activities, and providing service to the university, college, department and profession. The candidate will teach primarily in the BFA program but may also have an opportunity to teach in an MFA program and sit on MFA thesis committees.
