Faculty Position in Interactive Storytelling and Game Design at Reykjavik University

The School of Computer Science at Reykjavik University seeks to hire a faculty member for a new academic position in the field of interactive narrative and game design. We are interested in an ambitious, highly qualified academic who can combine innovative teaching and cutting-­edge research in the rapidly evolving area of interactive digital entertainment within our school.

The faculty position is funded through a collaboration with massively multiplayer game developer CCP Games Inc.  We are particularly interested in active researchers who see opportunities in breaking new ground with CCP and with existing faculty within Reykjavík University, in particular within CADIA, the school's artificial intelligence research center. CCP will fund the faculty position for a minimum of 5 years; following that period, CCP and Reykjavík University will seek continued funding for the position. Full academic freedom is respected, however, by both CCP and Reykjavík University.

See here for more information. The application deadline is 30 April 2013 and interviews will be held in May 2013.
