Posted 9 May 2014:  Instructional Faculty, Assistant Professor in Color Science, Rochester Institute of Technology (NY)

Faculty Type:          Tenure Track
Department:           Color Science
Requisition# 1045BR
Anticipated Start Date:  August 13, 2014

DETAILED JOB DESCRIPTION:
RIT’s Program of Color Science is expanding and is seeking a tenure-track assistant professor to complement its existing faculty starting in August 2014. Applicants are invited who have an interest in pursuing an academic career in the multi-disciplinary field of color science from the perspective of one of the fundamental disciplines of science upon which the program is built — physics, chemistry, life sciences, mathematics, and psychology. The successful candidate will spend the majority of their time working within the Program of Color Science, but will also be expected to work with, and teach within, one of the Schools of the College of Science housing the fundamental disciplines. The full program faculty will represent expertise across all the traditional disciplines.

As written in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, “Color science is a flourishing field of science, with a long history that goes back to Newton, and includes such famous figures as Young, Maxwell, Helmholtz, and Hering. While there has been widespread doubt about the existence of color as a physical reality, this has not stopped the growth of an enormous amount of research into color: into the mechanisms underlying color vision, into ways of specifying the ways colors appear, and into constructing systems to order colors. While much of this research has been directed at human color vision, there has been a growing amount addressing animal color vision. In other words, no one doubts that there is such a thing as color vision.” The newly hired faculty, together with existing faculty, will help define the future of the Program of Color Science at RIT as a model multi-disciplinary effort and define the field of color science for the next several decades.

We are seeking for individuals who have the ability and interest to contribute to a community committed to student-centeredness; professional development and scholarship; integrity and ethics; respect, diversity, and pluralism; innovation and flexibility; and teamwork and collaboration. Select to view links to RIT’s core values,honor code, and diversity commitment.

REQUIRED MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:

  • An earned doctorate in a scientific field related to color science.
  • Research and/or teaching experience in color science within candidate’s discipline of science.
  • Desire to teach graduate students in color science and undergraduate students in a traditional scientific discipline.
  • Interest and ability to participate in a multi-disciplinary graduate program in color science.
  • Interest and ability to mentor graduate students (M.S. and Ph.D.) in color science.
  • Interest and ability to direct an extramurally-funded research program.
  • Ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the college’s continuing commitment to cultural diversity, pluralism, and individual differences.
