Assistant Prof. Tenure Track
Manhattan College’s Communication Department seeks a tenure-track faculty member, at the assistant professor level, to join and participate in the building of our dynamic and still relatively new undergraduate program. We are looking for someone who will guide our concentration in journalism. In addition, we seek someone committed to a balance of theory and practice, given our commitment to the liberal arts tradition and the College’s Lasallian tradition and to take advantage of our location in the northernmost borough of New York City. By theory, we mean theory that connects our discipline to the liberal arts, to ethical practice within the media/mass media industry, to the use of media by citizens and consumers, to media’s impact on individuals and society/culture, and to the role of journalism within a democratic political system. By practice, we mean someone with a record of professional experience and/or a willingness to work and network with the industry in Manhattan to create internship and career opportunities for our students.
The successful candidate must be willing to teach core courses in our program as well as courses in journalism, and will serve as advisor for our student newspaper, The Quadrangle (for which s/he will receive either course release time or a stipend). The candidate must also be committed to steering our students across the frontier of our digital future, with respect to the changes and uncertainties digital media present for the news industry and journalistic practice, and the consequence of these changes and uncertainties for the provision and necessity of news in a democratic society.
Ph.D. in communication, media, or journalism required. ABD considered. Research program and commitment to teaching a must.
To start Fall 2018. Applications will be considered until 1 October 2017.
