NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY IN QATAR (NU-Q)

Position 1: Director, Communication Program

Northwestern University’s first international campus, Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q), is searching for a senior faculty member to serve as director of our program in communication.

Of special interest are candidates with expertise in media economics, media industry studies, or related fields. The ideal candidate will be a senior scholar with administrative experience; the successful candidate will act as Director of the Communication Program, leading a faculty of eleven and working closely with the Dean’s Office on issues of faculty development, mentoring, and curricular planning. Such a candidate will have a reduced teaching load, but will be expected to lead undergraduate courses on topics related to his or her expertise. Candidates should have a record of publication and scholarly accomplishment commensurate with the rank and position. Relevant industry experience and demonstrated interest in the Middle East will be especially welcome. Earned Ph.D. preferred. The program director also represents the Communication Program across the school, in Qatar’s Education City, and at the home campus in Evanston.

Our NU-Q programs in journalism, communication, and liberal arts work to advance the understanding and practice of freedom of expression. Our goal is to build a Northwestern University legacy of education and discovery in a dynamic area of the world in which excellence in science, technology, health care, and the information economy are fundamental goals of our host nation, Qatar. Many faculty find this to be a geographic area rich in research opportunities.

Toward this end, we seek individuals engaged in visionary lines of teaching, research, and creative activity who will appreciate a culturally diverse community of students, faculty, and staff of women and men drawn from Qatar, the United States, South Asia, Europe, Africa, North and South America, and elsewhere. The successful candidate will join faculty colleagues whose teaching experience includes Northwestern, Stanford, Cambridge, Columbia, Minnesota, and other highly ranked schools. Located in Education City in Doha, Qatar, NU-Q collaborates with sister institutions that include Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Georgetown, Texas A&M, and Virginia Commonwealth and in 2017 will occupy its own 500,000 square foot building with leading edge teaching, research, and media technologies.
