The Center for Technology, Entertainment and Media (CTEM) at Duke
University¹s Fuqua School of Business invites applications for a
post-doctoral fellowship to begin Fall 2011 for applicants whose research
lies at the intersection of information technology, media, and business.
Preference will be given to applicants studying the social and
organizational context of computer-enabled information technologies (e.g.,
storage, networks, databases), communication technologies (e.g., mobile
phones, Instant Messaging, Web conferencing), digital media (e.g., songs,
shows, videos), social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), or other
emerging collaborative technologies (e.g., Google Docs, Skype, Second Life).
See the conference URL below for an illustration of the relevant topics
addressed by CTEM:
The Center for Technology, Entertainment and Media focuses on issues
critical to firms in the IT industry (e.g., Google, IBM, Intel, Apple) and
the Entertainment/Media industry (e.g., Time Warner, Disney, News Corp,
Viacom) as well as the consequences of Technology and Entertainment/Media
development and use for employees, firms, industries, and society. For
example, business could benefit from greater knowledge about a media
industry disrupted by digital technologies that are shifting how music,
television, and films are viewed and distributed. Business could also
benefit from greater knowledge about tools being developed by firms in the
IT industry to facilitate virtual organizations in which individuals and
teams can work from any place at any time through information and
communication technologies.
The Fuqua School of Business provides an outstanding environment for
research, and topics related to technology and media are studied across Duke
University, such as in computer science, information studies and information
science, and sociology. The post-doctoral fellow will be expected to
establish a research program and contribute to the intellectual environment
of the Fuqua School of Business. He or she would work closely with Professor
Jonathon Cummings (Faculty Director) and Professor Tony O¹Driscoll
(Executive Director), and other collaborations with faculty at Fuqua and at
Duke will be encouraged. The salary is $65,000/year plus benefits.
Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. by August 2011. The post-doctoral
fellowship is exclusively for recent Ph.D. graduates. Eligible candidates
must not have previously held a faculty or postdoctoral position. Applicants
should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief summary of past and current
research, and a statement of proposed research to Emily Xavier
<emily.xavier at duke.edu>, Faculty Affairs Personnel Coordinator. Candidates
should include the names and contact information for three individuals who
would be willing to provide letters of recommendation. The candidate¹s
advisor will be asked to verify the date of Ph.D. completion. Applications
received by April 1, 2011 will receive full consideration. Duke University
is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer committed to increasing
the diversity of its employees. We strongly encourage applications from
women and underrepresented minority candidates.
