Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level


Tenured or tenure-track faculty position in the Living Environments Laboratory, Wisconsin Institute for Discovery.  We employ virtual reality and other data-intensive strategies to accelerate innovation in personal health records and homecare technologies. 

The Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery (WID), seeks tenure or tenure-track applicants with degrees (PhD, MFA or equivalent) in specializations such as human computer interaction, product design, applied data visualization, interactive installations, technical textile design, and human factors engineering for collaborative research in the Living Environments Laboratory.

The thrust of research in the LEL lies in the use of advanced visualizations and information architectures to improve human performance in real and virtual environments.  Motivated originally by the need to recreate every-day living environments to stimulate design of innovative homecare technologies, our work has expanded to a suite of investigations from basic to applied, all centered around information in complex but casual (non-industrial) settings.  The primary instrument of our work is a C6 Virtual Reality CAVEā„¢ and we are exploring scientific, clinical and aesthetic applications of this technology along with some basic computer science issues in visualization and image creation, replay and stabilization.

Opportunities are available at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. Successful candidates will occupy a new state-of-the-art facility, designed to spark and support cross-disciplinary collaborations. In addition, each researcher will assume a faculty position affiliated with a university department appropriate to their experience and interests. Relevant departments include (but are not limited to) Design Studies, Art, Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Computer Science or related fields. Upon applying via, you will be re-directed to our online application which you must complete entirely.
