U Colorado Denver job ad

Assistant Professor of Communication and New Media

The Department of Communication at the University of Colorado Denver (UCD) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in Communication and New Media, at the assistant professor level, beginning in August, 2013.

UCD is an urban campus that serves a diverse student body, values community engagement, and seeks top-notch scholars and world-class teachers. The Department of Communication offers B.A. and M.A. degrees and serves 450majors; professors teach on a 2/2 load and perform research and service consistent with peer urban research universities. The successful candidate will teach courses that fall within the Department’s “Media Studies” pathway, which includes such classes as Introduction to Media Studies, Media and Society, and New Media.

Because the Department participates in a joint venture with the International College Beijing, the Department is especially interested in those candidates whose research touches upon issues of globalization and/or international studies. Because the Department is committed to promoting social justice through community engagement and service-learning, the successful candidate will demonstrate excellence in implementing the study and practice of New Media in the interests of under-resourced communities.

While social scientists and humanists are both encouraged to apply, the successful candidate will need to work effectively in a Department staffed with colleagues whose work falls largely in the rhetorical and cultural traditions.

The Department strongly prefers candidates with a Ph.D. in communication (or a related discipline); however, candidates who are ABD with significant progress on the dissertation will also be considered. Additional preferred qualities include evidence of superior teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level; a track record of leadership in departmental, campus, and disciplinary service capacities; and a proven history of producing significant scholarship.

Applicants should submit a letter of application, vita, three letters of recommendation,two samples of scholarly activity, and evidence of teaching excellence to Dr. Brian L. Ott, Search Committee Chair, Department of Communication, University of Colorado Denver, P.O. Box 173364, CB 176, Denver, CO 80217-3364. In addition to sending hard copies of the materials listed above, applicants must also submit these materials (but not their letters of recommendation) electronically by following the directions. The Assistant Professor position number is 819516 for Department 30095 (Communication).

Candidates with questions about this job description are invited to contact Dr. Ott at brian.ott AT ucdenver.edu or at 303-556-6719.

Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until the position is filled; preliminary interviews will be conducted at the NCA convention.

UCD is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment. In fact, because the downtown campus is located in the heart of the city’s commercial, cultural, and recreational district, it attracts a diverse population consisting primarily of commuters, many of whom are non-traditional students. This diversity is enriched by UCD’s commitment to a philosophy of inclusion, which is embedded in all aspects of campus life.
