Assistant/Associate Professor - Interaction Design

+++ Assistant/Associate Professor - Interaction Design +++

The Department of Architecture at the University at Buffalo is
seeking candidates for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position at
the level of Assistant or Associate Professor in Interaction Design,
to begin Fall 2008 or Spring 2009.

Qualified applicants should have a terminal degree in Architecture,
Interaction Design or Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and have a
demonstrated record of excellence in teaching, research and/or
creative practice. We seek applicants with expertise in one or more
of the following areas: human-computer interaction; perceptual and
cognitive factors in design; tangible and social computing; digital
fabrication and rapid prototyping. The successful candidate will
teach graduate design courses, advanced seminars and conduct research
in their area of expertise. S/he will be committed to
interdisciplinary research related to Architecture and Pervasive
Computing through the Center for Virtual Architecture (CVA), a
designated center for excellence at the University at Buffalo.

Situated Technologies Pamphlets: Series Launch and Panel Discussion

Situated Technologies Pamphlet Series
publication launch and panel discussion

Friday, December 14, 2007
7:00 p.m.
The Urban Center
457 Madison Avenue
New York City

A reception and panel discussion celebrating the launch of the
Situated Technologies Pamphlet Series. Adam Greenfield and Mark
Shepard, co-authors of Situated Technologies Pamphlet 1: Urban
Computing and Its Discontents, together with Eric Paulos of Intel
Research, will consider the opportunities and dilemmas of ubiquitous
computing for urban life in this panel discussion launching the series.

The Situated Technologies Pamphlet Series emerged out of a three-day
symposium presented by The Center for Virtual Architecture, the
Institute for Distributed Creativity [iDC] and the Architectural
League of New York in October 2006. Published by the League and co-
edited by Omar Khan, Trebor Scholz and Mark Shepard, the series
explores the implications of ubiquitous computing for architecture
and urbanism: How are our experiences of the city and the choices we
make in it affected by mobile communications, pervasive media,
ambient informatics, and other 'situated

MArch + MFA Dual Degree Program
Departments of Architecture and Media Study
University at Buffalo, State University of New York


Computing has changed the way we think, feel, and operate in the
modern world. This has profound consequences for the way we conceive,
perceive and interact within built environments. Moving beyond screen-
based simulations and interactive environments, media-architecture
hybrids incorporate both the virtual and material dimensions of
everyday life. As sites of practice for media, architecture and
computing converge, new avenues for research and experimentation
arise that require an expanded knowledgebase. Recognizing this
challenge, the departments of Architecture and Media Study offer a
dual degree program in Media, Architecture & Computing, one of the
only such programs in the country.

This trans-disciplinary program offers dual terminal degrees, the
fully accredited Master of Architecture (MArch) and the Master of
Fine Arts (MFA). Working with distinguished faculty in the
departments of Architecture and Media Study, students conduct
research and creative explorations in responsive architecture,
robotics, networked performance, physical computing, locative media,
pervasive gaming, kinetic structures, parametric design, and digital
fabrication, among others. With a focus on providing a critical
context for experimental practice, this program provides the advanced
skills necessary to engage contemporary confluences of architecture
and computational media.

This program combines the 2-year accredited M.Arch. and the M.F.A.
for a total of 94 credit hours for applicants holding an undergaduate
degree in Architecture, or the 3.5-year accredited M.Arch. and the
M.F.A. for a total of 145 credit hours for students for applicants
from other fields.
