The Department of Technology, Culture, and Society (TCS) at the NYU Tandon
School of Engineering invites applications for the Dibner Family Chair in
the History and Philosophy of Technology and Science, to start on September
1, 2023.

The Dibner Family Chair in the History and Philosophy of Technology and
Science is dedicated to promoting humanistic perspectives on science and
technology and exploring the history and social implications of technology.
The Chair consists of two (2) concurrent positions: (i) a Tenured Faculty
Position and (ii) a Chair Position with a five-year renewable term. The
candidate selected as Chair will simultaneously receive offers of an
appointment to the Tenured Faculty Position and Chair Position.

Qualified candidates will be scholars of international repute with a
distinguished record of research in the history and philosophy of
technology and science.  Applicants should have an accomplished record of
scholarship in the interdisciplinary humanistic interpretation of
technology and science, with interests in issues such as how science and
engineering actually advance, how technological change broadly impacts
society, and how technology and science can be viewed from various
historical and philosophical perspectives within a predominantly
technological environment. Applicants should be willing to lead the
development of a top-ranked interdisciplinary program, be committed to
excellence in teaching and mentoring and possess outstanding intellectual
leadership within the University.

We especially welcome applications from scholars of the history and/or
philosophy of technology, with particular emphasis on the history and/or
philosophy of media technologies,  to support our academic degree programs
in Integrated Design & Media.  We also particularly welcome applicants who
have, in addition to scholarly and critical expertise, an active practice
in media, design, or arts. Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Media
Studies, Design, Science and Technology Studies, History, Philosophy,
Anthropology, Art History, or a related discipline.
