Lecturer in Communication, Faculty of Arts, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand. Deadline: 18 August 2019.
This is a permanent (tenure track) position. The appointed candidate will join the Media and Communications team which offers three undergraduate majors (Media, Film and Television; Communication; and Screen Production) and two postgraduate programmes (Media and Communication and Screen Production). The university also has two PhD programmes: an academic PhD and a PhD with creative practice.
The ideal candidate will have an area of expertise which may include critical analyses of advertising, journalism, algorithm studies or other approaches to social media and digital platforms. But there is also interest in seeing applications from researchers who explore how gender, ethnicity, and indigeneity intersect with digital cultures. Applicants welcome who combine academic qualifications and research with prior work experience in professional or applied contexts. Candidates will be expected to have familiarity with both quantitative and qualitative research methods in the fields of Media Studies and Communication.
