The department is primarily interested in candidates who can teach courses in visual storytelling at both the undergraduate and MA level. The candidate should also have the ability to teach conceptual courses across our curriculum. The successful candidate will have significant university teaching experience, having taught both small and large journalism courses.

The candidate will be open to creative interchange with colleagues. The candidate should have demonstrated commitment to and experience with inclusive pedagogies and the mentoring of a diverse range of undergraduate and graduate students. The position involves teaching three classes per semester. At least an MA degree in journalism or a related field is required.

Faculty members are prominent in both the academic and professional organizations. The Department of Journalism is a vibrant and engaged community of scholars and practitioners who share a commitment to the highest ethical and innovative ways to teach and research about journalism. The Department offers BA and MA degrees in journalism. The Department also offers a PhD degree in journalism studies.

Established in 2015, the College of Media, Communication and Information is at the forefront of the revolution in communication and digital technology. CMCI prides itself on offering students an interdisciplinary education with a focus on innovation and creativity. Our students and faculty from six departments and an independent PhD program think across boundaries, innovate around emerging problems and create culture that transcends convention.

CMCI strives to be a community whose excellence is premised on diversity, equity and inclusion. We seek candidates who share this commitment and demonstrate understanding of the experiences of those historically underrepresented in higher education. We welcome applications from minoritized racial and ethnic identities, ciswomen, non-normative genders and sexualities, persons with disabilities, and others who have encountered legacies of marginalization.

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be

  • Teach three journalism courses per semester
  • Do service within both the Department of Journalism, CMCI and the university as a whole.

The position will begin in August of 2024. To apply, candidates should submit a letter of application, a current CV, a portfolio of video storytelling, and evidence of teaching success including a statement that details your commitment and experience with issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in the classroom and with mentoring. In addition, candidates should provide the names and contact information (affiliations and e-mail addresses) for three people who can provide recommendations if asked. The committee will begin reviewing applications on April 1. If you have any questions, please contact Department Chair Patrick Ferrucci.
