The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has recently launched an interdisciplinary initiative in graduate education in technology studies under the “INTERSECT” program. This initiative is called “Learning to See Systems.” It includes a Communication MA or PhD track.
A special *Fellowship* will be offered by the Graduate College through the Department of Communication to fully fund graduate study on this track for two years (no TA-ing or RA-ing), followed by up to three successive years of normal departmental funding from the Department of Communication if the student is a doctoral student.
The Department of Communication is therefore seeking applicants interested in the intersections between technology studies and communication studies, especially communication design, *rhetorical studies*, and/or the critical/cultural study of technological systems from a communication perspective.

Argumentation Technology has been marked as one of the ten priority areas for the University’s new Dundee Fellows scheme, which offers a number of permanent (i.e. tenured) lectureships with low teaching loads, to support the career development of strong new academic appointments. Excellent research potential with evidence of existing top quality publications is the key criterion.
A Dundee Fellow Research Lectureship in the Argumentation Research Group is an additional post to the recently advertised Lectureship in the group, and represents a significant investment and expression of confidence by the University in this area of research. Applications from candidates with experience in all areas with relevance to argument and debate are invited, but we are particularly keen to see applications from those with a demonstrated track record in artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, discourse processing, formal models of the law, or mathematical logic.
Deadline for applications is 23 January 2013. For further information, please contact Prof. Chris Reed by email c.a.reedATdundee.ac.uk or by telephone (+44 1382 388083).
