Applicant must be comfortable leading user centered research and design, and have a PhD in Human-Centered Computing, Computer Science, Information Systems, Interaction Design, or a related field.  Preference will be given to applicants with enthusiasm for accessibility research, working closely with end users, and mentoring students. Preference will also be given to applicants with a solid track record of publications at top conferences such as CHI, ASSETS, DIS, CSCW, Ubicomp, IUI or UIST.
