NYU’s Consortium for Research and Evaluation of Advanced Technology in Education (CREATE), housed in Steinhardt’s School of Culture, Education & Human Development and directed by Jan L. Plass, is seeking a highly motivated part-time programmer, effective immediately. This position may become full-time, pending funding.

The programmer will join our existing development team and focus primarily on writing code for educational games and simulations using the Unity3D game engine. Our current exciting research projects involve the development of inovative interactive simulations and games in areas such as introductory undergraduate statistics, high school chemistry, and middle school math. We are continually expanding our portfolio of research-based educational games and simulations, which can be viewed at our web site (http://create.nyu.edu).

This position is an excellent opportunity for talented game developers who wish to augment their existing programming and game development skills with experience in educational media and/or research-based approaches to game design and playtesting.

Primary responsibilities for the position include:

  • Write client-side code to create easy to use simulations and games in Unity3D

  • Collaborate with designers to create innovative educational simulations and games (including game mechanics, graphic design, and technical features)

  • Develop prototypes quickly to validate designs

  • Build the libraries and frameworks that allow for rapid development of new simulations and games

  • Aide in playtesting and other research related to developed games and tools

Qualifications for the position include:

  • Experience with Unity3D (Unity Editor, Unity UI, MonoDevelop)

  • Experience programming in C# and/or Javascript

  • Additional experience in HTML5, WebGL, or graphic design is a plus

  • Strong interest in digital media / simulations & games for learning

  • Strong ability to communicate ideas with our interdisciplinary team
