Join our community and experience Emerson College!

The Department of Communication Studies in the School of Communication at Emerson College seeks to fill a full-time, one-year, non-tenure track teaching position at the Instructor level, specializing in Intercultural Communication and Health. The appointment begins on August 19, 2021. Position may be renewed for an additional year.

Emerson College is committed to an active, intentional, and ongoing engagement with diversity in people, in the curriculum, in the co-curriculum, and in the College's intellectual, social, cultural, and geographical communities. Emerson endorses a framework of inclusive excellence, which recognizes that institutional excellence comes from fully engaging with diversity in all aspects of institutional activities. Emerson is committed to strengthening communities, including our workplace, by fostering the development of the intercultural competencies necessary for meaningful citizenship in an increasingly complex, pluralistic society.

Candidates must have demonstrated ability to work effectively with faculty, students, and staff from diverse backgrounds. An ability to work and teach collaboratively, and a strong commitment to undergraduate education beyond the classroom are essential. Members of historically under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.

The ideal candidate would have completed a doctorate or other terminal degree in Communication in the past five years, and is interested in a full-time teaching appointment that is also focused on learning about and improving pedagogy.

Responsibilities include teaching undergraduate courses and demonstrating a commitment to the academic community. The ideal candidate will be prepared to teach communication studies courses that focus on multicultural or multiethnic intercultural communication, public speaking, and health communication, from a critical and cultural perspective. Although hosted by the Department of Communication Studies, the faculty member may also be assigned to teach classes that are either offered or cross-listed by other Emerson College departments.

We envision a course load of five classes total in two semesters (2-3 or 3-2), with a sixth class equivalency dedicated to learning about and improving pedagogy.

Emerson College is the nation's only four-year institution dedicated exclusively to majors in communication and the arts in a liberal arts context. It is located in the dynamic multi-cultural city of Boston in close proximity to major arts institutions, performing art venues, and research centers. The college enrolls 5,100 undergraduate and graduate students from 58 countries and all 50 states.

Please submit the following:
