Appointment is on a nine-month, academic year basis, with additional summer appointment possible.

 Duties and Responsibilities:

Teach courses in communication pedagogy, graduate teaching preparation, with additional teaching assignment (at both the undergraduate and graduate level) based on candidate’s own area of expertise and program needs. Serve as the Introductory Course Coordinator, overseeing our CMST 101: Introduction to Oral Communication program, including supervision of graduate teaching assistants. (CMST 101 is one of four university core curriculum foundation courses, and follows requirements set by the Illinois Articulation Initiative; we offer both face-to-face and online versions). Plan and facilitate the CMST graduate student orientation program, and work closely with offices across campus and the CMST undergraduate coordinator to promote excellence in communication. Work with and advise the Speaker’s Center and the semi-annual Student Speakers Forum. Develop and implement assessment. Provide service as fits within the purview of the Introductory Course Coordinator office. Advise MA and PhD students, and serve on graduate committees. Typical teaching load is 1/1.

 Minimum Qualifications:

Applicants must have a PhD in Communication Studies or related field, with demonstrated potential for success at administering an introductory communication course program at the college level. ABD applicants will be considered if all requirements for the PhD will be completed by August 15, 2023. If all degree requirements are not completed by August 15, 2023, a term, non-tenure track appointment may be offered in accordance with University policy ( -faps/conting.php). The candidate must be an active researcher with a strong record of relevant publication. 

In addition to the degree requirement, applicants must demonstrate in their cover letter, curriculum vita, or other application materials the following:

  1. a potential to develop a strong introductory course program
  2. evidence of administrative experience
  3. teaching experience
  4. commitment to working with students from diverse backgrounds such as racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify as LGBTQ+, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower income backgrounds, and/or first-generation or otherwise underserved college students.

Preferred Qualifications:

We welcome all applicants, but we particularly seek scholars working from the intersections of critical communication pedagogy, communication and culture, and graduate education. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience with graduate teaching, administrative work, and assessment development, and/or expertise or interest in topic areas that complement one or more of the research and teaching specializations in the School: gender, sexuality, and relational communication; intercultural communication and pedagogy; performance studies; and/or rhetoric and society.
