Dear All,
Please circulate and forward the ad below to interested (and especially 
female) students.
The interdisciplinary graduate program ACE (Arts Computation 
Engineering) at the University of California, Irvine, is now accepting 
applications for Fall 2004 admission. Please refer to the ACE website 
www.ace.uci.edu <http://www.ace.uci.edu/> for program information and 
application instructions.

The ideal candidate will have a history of interdisciplinary interests, 
represented by dual undergraduate degrees, a double major, or 
major/minor, that integrate Arts, Engineering and/or Computer Science, 
or a degree in a relevant field and demonstrated relevant experience. 
Experience in interdisciplinary digital arts practice and in 
negotiating the intersections of research, engineering and arts, 
aesthetically and theoretically, is expected. By definition, such a 
candidate will be atypical, and may be characterized as an engineer 
with an artistic bent, an artist with a technical bent, or an 
artist/technologist with an interest in social science or cultural 
theory, etc. ACE encourages socially engaged work and a critical 
position with respect to digital media and computer technology is 
desirable. Grounding in critical theory and/or cultural studies will be 
an asset.

Assistant Professor of Studio Art and Electrical Engineering and 
Computer Science
