Concordia University
Canada Research Chair (tier II)
New Media Arts
The Faculty of Fine Arts seeks applications for a Canada Research Chair, 
tenure track position for an artist working with digital technologies. 
Experience could include installation art, video, sound, robotics, software 
or hardware development, emerging technologies, computational or 
interactive art. The candidate should have a history of challenging the 
existing digital technologies in their practice and research, and have 
worked in an interdisciplinary context.
Applicants must demonstrate the potential to achieve international 
recognition in the next five years, and are expected, by the definition of 
a Tier II Chair, to have earned their terminal degree fewer than ten years ago.
The Faculty of Fine Arts offers vibrant programs in Art Education, Art 
History, the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Contemporary Dance, Creative 
Arts Therapies, Design Art, Digital Image/Sound and the Fine Arts (joint 
program with the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science), Music, 
Studio Arts, and Theatre. Concordia has recently launched an innovative 
multi-university research environment, Hexagram: The Institute of Research 
and Creation in Media Arts and Technologies (www.hexagram.org).
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the activities of the 
faculty and to its academic life, including teaching, supervision of 
graduate students, and development of graduate programs. Pending CRC 
approval of the nomination, the position is expected to begin in September 
Candidates must hold a PhD or terminal degree in an appropriate field. 
Evidence of research collaboration, and French/English bilingualism are 
considered assets.
Applications must include a CV, a full and detailed five-year 
research/creation plan, and the names, addresses, and current contact 
information for three references. Deadline: May 15, 2003.
