Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the John V. Roach Honors College at Texas Christian
University, I'm excited to announce our search for a tenure-track
assistant professor of game studies:


Our ad (attached as a PDF but also available via the above link) aims to
provide a sense of who we are (as an honors college and as a secular
university with an intellectually progressive Christian heritage), what
it would mean to become a member of our core interdisciplinary faculty,
and the qualities we are seeking in our candidate pool.

Could you please help me share this announcement with young game studies
scholars who might wish to apply?

With our gratitude and best wishes,


Dr. Rob Garnett

Associate Dean, John V. Roach Honors College
Honors Professor of Social Sciences and Professor of Economics
