Assistant Professor in Communication
Merrimack College invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor in Communication to teach courses in the Communication Arts and Sciences Department beginning fall 2014. A Ph.D. in-hand in Communication or a related field is preferred, but ABD candidates (PH.D. finished by August 1st) with additional relevant experience will be considered.
The successful candidate should demonstrate teaching effectiveness in courses that would complement the department’s current undergraduate curriculum in Mass Communication. The ideal candidate will have substantial professional experience and be able to teach hands-on production-based courses in one or more of the following areas:
- Public Relations, Integrated Marketing Communication and/or Advertising
- Broadcast and Traditional Media Production (TV, radio, video, film)
- Social Networking, New Media, and Digital Media Production and Design
In addition to being able to teach courses that complement the established Mass Communication concentration, the successful candidate should feel comfortable teaching in a Communication Studies-based curriculum that strives to balance communication theory with real world application. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop courses in her/his area of expertise.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until November 15th. For questions, please contact Dr. Deborah Burns, Chair of the Communication Arts and Sciences Department at email@example.com.
Interested applicants should send via email the following: 1) current curriculum vitae with contact information for three references, 2) letter of application, 3) a sample(s) of work that exemplifies one or more of the aforementioned bullet points. This work should be submitted in the form of a professional media portfolio, and 4) evidence of teaching effectiveness, to Deborah Burns, Chair (Burnsd@merrimack.edu) and Lisa Michel, Administrative Assistant to the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences at firstname.lastname@example.org. Only complete applications will be considered.
