DXARTS at the University of Washington - Call for Applicants

DXARTS is an autonomous degree granting Center in the College of Arts and Sciences at the UW. The new Ph.D. program embraces an expansive range of digital and experimental arts practice, and research across multiple disciplines. Faculty and students at DXARTS work in established areas of experimental arts such as Digital Video, Mechatronics, Computer Music and Sound Art, 3D Animation, and Telematics, as well as pursue innovative areas of arts research and creative context that have no media allegiance or historical precedent. Creative work underway at DXARTS draws from all combinations of the arts and sciences, and actively seeks the invention of completely new domains of arts practice.

The deadline for receipt of complete applications for the Ph.D. program is Fri 8 Feb 2008, for Autumn 2008 admission. Though DXARTS highly encourages applications from all interdisciplinary fields of experimental arts practice, special attention will be focused this application cycle to artists whose backgrounds include interests and strong skill sets in at least one of the following: experimental film making, computer music, computer programming, data acquisition, 3-D modeling, cnc machining, rapid prototyping, bioengineering, mechatronics, robotics and networked environments. Successful applicants receive full tuition waiver and competitive stipend (basic salary). International students should apply as soon as possible due to the extra administrative time needed to process these applications.
