Through values of Diversity, Integrity, Responsibility, Excellence, Compassion, Creativity, and Teamwork (DIRECCT) the U community works together to create an environment driven by purpose, excellence, community, and service.

 

The University of Miami’s (UM) School of Communication (SoC) is seeking a Lecturer to teach in one or more of the following areas: front-end development, information design, and interactive data visualization. This is a joint appointment between the School of Communication’s Department of Interactive Media and Department of Journalism and Media Management. The candidate will teach classes in both departments. The position has a 4-4 teaching load, and the candidate is expected to maintain a record of creative activity.

 

We are looking for candidates with experience teaching these or similar topics, and with at least a Masters degree in a related field. The ideal candidate will help develop the School of Communication’s burgeoning programs in interactive media and data journalism.

 

The candidate should demonstrate proficiency in tools and programming languages commonly used in data reporting (Excel, Tableau, R/Python, etc..) as well as solid skills in front end development, and interactive data visualization (HTML, CSS, Javascript, d3.js, js frameworks, etc...).

 

The University of Miami is considered among the top tier institutions of higher education in the United States (US)  for its academic excellence, superior medical care, and cutting-edge research. At the U, we are committed to attracting a talented workforce to support our shared purpose of transforming lives through teaching, research, and service.

Miami’s cosmopolitanism brings to the city influences from all around the globe and particularly from the Americas, providing the city with a rich and diverse cultural life and wonderful gastronomy. Despite being one of the largest urban areas in the world the privileged location of Miami, between the Everglades and Biscayne Bay, and its proximity to the Florida Keys makes the city a perfect place for those that enjoy nature and the outdoors.
