Rhetoric & Communications Studies: Visiting Assistant Professor - 000080R

The Department of Rhetoric & Communication Studies at the University of Richmond invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor of media studies, renewable for up to three years, contingent upon performance, budget, and continued need, to begin in August 2021. The successful candidate for this non-tenure-track position will teach sections of the department’s introductory course, “Media, Culture, & Identity,” in addition to electives related to their area of research expertise. While we are open to a range of scholarly interests, we are especially receptive to colleagues committed to interdisciplinarity, working in one or more of the following areas: critical race studies, feminist studies, anti-colonialism, digital cultures, digital humanities, technology studies, or critical code studies. Teaching load is six courses for the academic year. Experience with instructional technologies is required. Completion of PhD is preferred prior to appointment.

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and 92% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.”

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment.

Applicants should click "Apply Now" at the top of the page and submit the following materials: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and goals; and a teaching statement. The teaching statement should articulate the candidate’s teaching philosophy, interests, and future professional development goals as well as involvement in and commitment to inclusive pedagogy. Candidates for this position may be asked, at a later date, to provide the names and contact information for three references who will be asked to submit letters of recommendation. Review of applications begins on April 5, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. Please address any questions about the position to the Chair of the Search Committee, Dr. Nicole Maurantonio ([email protected]).
