The Communication Studies Department at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles seeks applicants for a tenure-track, Assistant Professor position in the area of Intercultural Communication, beginning Fall 2022.

Position Qualifications:

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Communication or related fields in hand at the time a contract is offered. Final appointment is dependent on a confirmed terminal degree status. Applicants who have not yet completed their doctorate must demonstrate progress verifiable by evidence and substantive enough to ensure completion of their degree at the time of appointment.

Candidates are required to have evidence of a strong record of university or equivalent teaching excellence in the area of intercultural communication. Application materials should clearly demonstrate the ability to teach the anticipated courses. Candidates should demonstrate an ability to enrich our curriculum through innovative pedagogical approaches, such as community-based, experiential, applied, or other inventive and critical pedagogies, in existing and newly developed courses.

The successful candidate will be expected to adopt a teacher-scholar model of professional engagement with a commitment to service and an established, or promise of, a productive agenda of research and scholarship. We value a diverse array of professional and practical experience in addition to the required academic qualifications.
