MIT Media Lab Faculty Search
"2. UNDEFINED DISCIPLINE
The Media Lab is a cross-disciplinary research organization focusing on the invention of new media technologies that radically improve the ways people live, learn, work, and play.
We are seeking a new kind of early career faculty member, not defined by discipline, rather by his or her unique and iconoclastic experience, style, and points of view. You can be a designer, inventor, scientist, or scholar – any combination – as long as you make things that matter. Impact is key.
This means somebody with at least these three sets of characteristics:
1) Being deeply versed in a minimum of two fields, preferably not ones normally juxtaposed;
2) Being an orthogonal and counter-intuitive thinker, even a misfit within normal structures;
3) Having a fearless personality, boundless optimism, and desire to change the world."
