The Media Lab is a cross-disciplinary research organization focusing on the
invention of new media technologies that radically improve the ways people live,
learn, work, and play.
We are looking for faculty candidates who aspire to mitigate climate change and
environmental degradation in ways that are highly innovative, technically deep
and credible, yet wouldn’t fit into traditional academic departments. We seek
applicants who can think boldly across disciplinary boundaries in areas such as
environmental sensing, connecting people to changes in their environment, new
frontiers in citizen science, efficient techniques to sense and reduce greenhouse
gas emission, development and rapid exploitation of new “green” power
sources, energy distribution and storage, new approaches to energy
conservation, behavior change at local and policy levels to encourage
conservation and transition away from carbon-emitting fuel, geo-engineering,
and new technologies for mitigating the effects of climate shift.
Successful candidates will be expected to: establish and lead their own research
group within the Media Lab; pursue creative work of the highest international
standard; engage in collaborative projects with industrial sponsors and other
Media Lab research groups, supervise masters and doctoral students and
participate in the Media Arts and Science academic program.
