Assistant Professor in Communication and Diversity, Department of Communication, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA. Deadline: November 24, 2019.
The Department of Communication invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor in the area of communication and diversity. The appointment is expected to begin July 1, 2020. At a minimum, qualified applicants must have completed all requirements for a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in communication or a related field, except dissertation or equivalent, by the time of application. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in communication or a related field by the appointment start date. Preference will be given to candidates who have a strong social science background with a record of publishing innovative, empirical research, utilizing quantitative, qualitative, and/or mixed methods.
We seek applicants who conduct theoretically-driven, social scientific communication research centrally informed by cultural and/or racial experiences that are often ignored in current disciplinary knowledge. Applicants’ scholarly profiles should be centered in a commitment to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusiveness. The successful candidate will complement one or more of the Department’s core areas in interpersonal/intergroup, media and technology, and organizational communication, as well as any of our cross-cutting emphases in health, family, or global approaches to communication. Scholars whose research investigates communication phenomena as they engage with the needs and concerns of an increasingly diverse and multicultural society are encouraged to apply.
