U Washington job ad: Communication and Difference

The University of Washington seeks a tenure track assistant professor in the area of Communication and Difference in the Department of Communication.

Difference, a perceived deviation from traditionally understood norms and patterns, is central to all of our lives. Whether we move in the margins or at the center of cultures, we live difference in a variety of overlapping, multifaceted, and distinctly experiential ways. Difference is increasingly the norm because of demographic trends, global flows, and technological developments, but scholars have more work to do to understand the myriad factors affecting and reflecting difference and the ways in which it continues to be tied to inequality across cultures. The Department of Communication includes several faculty who are involved in research, teaching, and service related to communication and difference, and we seek a colleague who will complement these faculty. Candidates may focus on race, gender, class, religion, disability, economic difference, sexuality, age, and culture, or other sources of difference; we are particularly interested in work that speaks to the intersectionality of some of these. We encourage applicants from all epistemological traditions, including social scientific, critical/cultural, and rhetoric. Candidates should have interests in at least two of our departmental areas of conceptual emphasis (for these please see our website). As such, we expect that applicants will differ from one another in the communicative contexts they tend to study. Experience mentoring underrepresented students is highly valued for this position.

The start date for this position is September 16, 2015. Applicants should have the Ph.D. degree in Communication or closely related discipline by the start of appointment. University of Washington faculty members engage in teaching, research, and service. Candidates are expected to conduct research, teach four courses during a three-quarter academic year, and supervise graduate students at the master’s and doctoral levels. The position involves teaching in the Department of Communication’s undergraduate and graduate programs. Candidates must submit (1) a letter of application that addresses research and teaching interests (on the latter please indicate fit with current courses and/or suggestions for potential new ones); (2) a curriculum vitae; and (3) names and contact information for three references. Application materials are to be submitted online. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2014. Inquiries should be directed to the search committee chair, Dr. Valerie Manusov.

The University of Washington is an affirmative-action, equal-opportunity employer. The University is building a culturally diverse faculty and staff and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and protected veterans.
