Job: Two Faculty Positions at the NYU Game Center

New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts’ Game Design Department seeks to fill two full-time faculty positions for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Experienced faculty applicants or seasoned professionals will be considered for Associate Arts Professor track or Assistant Arts Professor track depending on qualifications and interests.

Join the NYU Game Center – a passionate community of game creators, researchers, and educators who are committed to building the world’s greatest game design program, teaching the next generation of game innovators, and contributing to the evolution of games as a cultural form and game design as creative practice.

We are seeking applicants with experience in one or more of the following domains: game design, game development, game scholarship, and/or game education.

As part of Tisch School of the Arts, Game Center faculty are expected to combine teaching with an active, ongoing professional practice and/or research in the world of games. We are looking for candidates who are active participants in the field, doing original and innovative work as creators and/or scholars, and who are able to draw on their professional experience to create a compelling and effective learning environment.

Whether you are an industry veteran with triple-A experience who wants a chance to share your knowledge of the complex craft of game development, an independent developer exploring the experimental edge of game aesthetics, or a critical theorist asking questions about the fundamental nature and cultural context of games and play, we want to talk to you about joining the NYU Game Center.

Previous teaching experience is not a requirement, but it is a strong plus.

Duties include teaching five courses a year, student advisement, and participation in departmental and school-wide committees. On-going professional work while teaching is expected. Salary, to be negotiated, includes an excellent benefits package.


Applicants must provide a cover letter, full C.V. and three letters of recommendation.

All materials must be submitted by December 1, 2014.

  Finalists will be asked to submit creative work.
