DePaul University’s College of Computing and Digital Media (CDM) School of Design (SoD) invites applications for a one-year renewable full time non-tenure track faculty to begin in Fall 2017. Launched January 2015, the School of Design offers a learning environment that nurtures the development of innovative designers, who embrace interdisciplinary methods to solve challenging problems.

Faculty will teach courses that focus on design, creation, and implementation, and evaluation of interactive artifacts with a focus on web and mobile computing by developing skills in design methods, user experience, visual design, web development, design patterns and techniques to communicate and share their design ideas. Applicants should anticipate teaching the integration of existing and cutting-edge technologies and social practices into visualizations, apps, products, processes, and design experiences that positively impact society.

Located in the heart of Chicago’s vibrant Loop, the School of Design, which launched in January 2015, offers a learning environment that nurtures the development of new kinds of designers: flexible, interdisciplinary, life-long learners trained as collaborative problem seekers and solvers. Graduates are capable of integrating existing and cutting-edge technologies and social practices into visualizations, games, apps, products, processes, and experiences that positively impact society. We are interested in candidates who are excited to realize a vision for the School of Design that is based on its core values:

  • Empowering Designers, Makers, Artists, Users, and Audiences
  • Cultural Impact and Relevance
  • Building and Nourishing Community
  • Diversity of People and of Experiences
  • Experimentation and Innovation

DePaul draws students of many backgrounds and cultures from a diverse urban setting, thus we are interested in recruiting and maintaining a diverse group of faculty. Members of all underrepresented groups, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities are invited and encouraged to apply.
Our university promotes diversity and inclusivity among our students, faculty, and staff. Thus, we seek candidates whose experience has prepared them to fulfill our commitment to inclusion, and have given them the confidence to fully engage audiences in higher education from a wide spectrum of backgrounds.
