The SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT) is currently seeking an Assistant
Professor in Communications & Information Design to join a small but growing
faculty with interests in new media.  If you know of any relatively recent
or soon-to-be graduates, I'd appreciate if you could send this along to
them.  While we'd prefer degree-in-hand, we will give full consideration to
applications from ABDs.   I'm happy to talk with anyone who would like to
know more about SUNYIT, central New York, or this job in particular prior to

The job ad reads as follows:  "The successful candidate will teach
undergraduates in the Communication and Information Design major, and
graduate students earning an M.S. in Information Design and Technology.

advanced new media skills, and should demonstrate a research agenda
examining the role of new and emerging media within contemporary culture. A
professional portfolio evidencing experience in new media production is
desirable. Faculty will be expected to serve both on-campus and online
learners and take an active role in the ongoing development of both
programs. PhDs desired; ABDs or theory-oriented MFAs considered.
Applications considered immediately; position open until filled."
