Assistant Professor-Visual Communication
UW-Madison’s Department of Life Sciences Communication is searching for a tenure-track assistant professor in visual communication. The successful candidate will have an outstanding research record in science communication with a focus on visual communication. This might include but is not limited to data visualization, data journalism, (visual) information processing, visual literacy, and/or visual aspects of communication campaigns. Ideally, the candidate’s work will be relevant to one or more of the College of Agricultural & Life Sciences (CALS) key strategic areas (health, food, bioenergy, climate change, community development, ecosystems; https://cals.wisc.edu/about-cals/strategic-planning-a-progress-report/priority-themes/) as context of inquiry.
The candidate will teach cutting-edge courses in science (and visual) communication in one of the college’s fastest-growing undergraduate majors. The successful candidate will also advise Masters and Ph.D. students and teach graduate level courses in LSC’s M.S. programs and in our Ph.D. program (jointly administered with UW’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication), one of the most highly-ranked graduate programs in communication internationally.
The position carries a commitment to the three functions of resident instruction, research, and outreach/service, as well as professional and university service as appropriate to the position and rank.
The ability to work in interdisciplinary settings and willingness to work with units across CALS will make this new colleague a perfect addition to our faculty.
