The MIT Media Lab (www.media.mit.edu ) is seeking a candidate to fill a tenuretrack

The Media Lab is a cross-disciplinary research organization focusing on the

invention of new media technologies that radically improve the ways people live,

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.
