The Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University seeks faculty candidates 
with a strong track record in research, outstanding academic credentials, and an earned Ph.D. 
They should also have a strong interest in graduate and undergraduate education. Although 
outstanding candidates in any area of HCI are invited to apply, we are targeting candidates in

emphasizes the creation of large scale human-computer and human-human interactions. The candidate 
should have an demonstrable ability to collaborate across disciplines.

* Constructing and evaluating environments that motivate creativity, growth and learning

We are looking for a candidate whose research emphasizes environments for creativity, growth or 
learning, broadly conceived. Candidates can work with any of a number of techniques including 
(but not limited to) games, narrative, story-telling, or persuasive technology, applied to any of 
a number of domains, including (but not limited to) health, sustainability, education, or learning 
in everyday life. The candidate should have an demonstrable ability to collaborate across 
disciplines.
