Link to application (due Nov 1): https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19106

  • Updates:
    • (12/2) Any word on this one?
    • 12/3: Heard from someone inside that there would likely be no movement on this until after the first of the year.
    • 01/10 Emailed with a request for letters of recommendation. (x4)
      • Were these sent to the LORs or the applicants?
      • Email sent to applicants asking us to send requests for LORs via academic jobs online system.
      • Ugh, not going to lie that I was feeling hopeful about having received a request for Letter of Recommedation, only now to realize I'm probably one of many. It's such a crapshoot. Anyone interested in starting a site where we share our anxieities, rejections, ridiculous experiences with this process etc. to make us feel a bit more like we're not the only ones going through this?
      • Re: job market woes. Yes, the market is brutal and it's hard to manage the ups and downs. I've been inside on hiring decisions and there are so many factors outside the candidates' control that factor in. The job market is not a meritocracy nor is it a measure of worth. Keep your chin up!
      • Not to pour water on the last post, but the fact it is a lottery is a reason to not keep your chin up. You are literally sitting at a slot machine that's rigged against you. And think about what you know about what's happening to universities and how bad it's going to get. I interviewed at a data analytics last month and they were going to essentially match the salary my tenured advisor was getting for entry level. Don't play their game.
      • If currently at the slot machine, at what point do you move on?
  • 01/19: any updates for this position? have they sent out zoom interview invites?
  • They requested LORs by Jan 24, so they may not be at that stage yet.
  • 2/6 Any updates?
  • Wrote to committee-- they expect more info after dept mtg on 2/9
  • Thanks for sharing!
  • 2/10: I heard some rejections went out today for people who didn't get an LOR request. Did anyone who *did* get their LORs requested hear anything?
  • 2/11: I had LOR requested back in January, have not received any other correspondence
  • 2/15: Virtual campus invitation received

The School of Communication and Journalism and the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science

The School of Communication and Journalism (SoCJ), established in 2006, serves as the academic home of the Alda Center. We believe that the world's most complex and pressing problems require honest, inclusive, effective, fact-based communication. We envision a world that takes seriously the need for communication across all forms, platforms, and institutions. The SoCJ integrates innovative approaches to research, teaching, and public service in the fields of communication and journalism with an emphasis on efforts that collaboratively address and respond to pressing societal needs. The SoCJ offers a B.A. in Journalism (accredited by ACEJMC), a B.S. in Mass Communication, an M.S. in Science Communication, and an M.S. in Journalism. In partnership with the Alda Center, SoCJ offers an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Communicating Science, and an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Health Communication in collaboration with the SBU Program in Public Health. It is also home to the Marie Colvin Center for International Reporting and the Center for News Literacy. The School is the only one in the 64-campus SUNY system to be accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science empowers scientists and researchers to share the wonder and joy of science with a wide variety of audiences. Through graduate programs and professional development workshops, researchers learn to share their knowledge and their discoveries in ways that resonate with other researchers, students, members of the media, policymakers, funders, the public, and others. Founded in 2009 by actor, author, and activist Alan Alda, the Alda Center has helped more than 18,000 researchers from around the world to communicate effectively and empathically. The Center is housed at Stony Brook University on Long Island, New York. Learn more at AldaCenter.org.

Our students are diverse and dynamic, with interests in journalism and media, marketing, science communication, and communication research. They represent many different backgrounds, and they bring those experiences into the School, helping to create an environment that is truly welcoming to each individual and their ideas. This is particularly evident in their efforts to listen to and share the experiences of individuals who have traditionally been marginalized or undervalued through in-depth reporting projects on the legacy of slavery on Long Island, child visitation rights among incarcerated populations, and efforts to protect and preserve Long Island from the effects of climate change. Students apply what they learn in the classroom to internships at many different media organizations, including Loeb Industries, blogs and other new media operations, and local media including WSHU, a Long Island NPR affiliate that has offices on campus. Many students’ classroom reporting efforts have gone on to win regional and national awards.

Our journalism, communication, and mass communication faculty have outstanding track records in their fields as researchers or award-winning national and international correspondents. The faculty at the Alda Center represent some of the leading science communication practitioners in the country, and are helping to professionalize a field that is vitally important to the well-being of people, societies, and the environment.

The selected candidate must successfully clear a background investigation.

Update: Zoom interview early Nov.

Update: fly outs in Dec.; should hear from hiring committee by Jan. 15

Update: I just got an email from HR stating, "At this time, a decision has been made to close the search and not to fill the position." Was this an error or did they really close the job without filling it?

1/25: It could be an error, but I had 5 searches close without being filled last year, so I wouldn’t be shocked if this happened. Sometimes it’s closed by admin above the department due to budgetary or other reasons and isn’t necessarily a commentary on the quality of the applicant pool.

The University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication seeks a tenure-track Assistant Professor with a research and teaching emphasis in the area of Digital Platforms and Ethics. We seek to hire a colleague who will conduct research on and teach ethics in the context of mass media, communication, and digital media technologies—including internet platforms, software, algorithms, and technical infrastructure. Apps, algorithms, and digital platforms dominate much of our economy, politics, culture, and everyday lives, with consequences for communication, mass media, democracy, and public life. For example, the ascendancy of Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft requires assessment of issues ranging from bias built into software to monopolization of online markets and even their role in the rise and spread of misinformation around COVID-19, climate change, and recent elections.

The hire would bring the following key contributions to our faculty:

1) Expertise in theories and concepts pertinent to media ethics generally and digital media ethics specifically, including issues of free speech, privacy, surveillance, transparency, content moderation, platform power, trust, misinformation, and/or human rights;

2) A related specialty, such as the study of algorithms, software, platforms and infrastructures, and/or critical approaches to programming; and

3) A capacity to teach our required Media Ethics course, other core courses (such as Media and Society and courses within our four undergraduate and graduate sequences as related to their area(s) of expertise), as well as develop innovative courses across the SOJC.

This person must have a Ph.D. in communication, media studies, journalism, information science/studies, philosophy, or another related field (or Juris Doctorate) in hand by time of appointment; demonstrated potential for teaching excellence; ability to execute independent and/or collaborative research that advances theory and bridges knowledge and practice; and a record or promise of scholarly accomplishment that includes publication of peer-reviewed articles and publication in academic journals in communication, media studies, journalism, information studies, surveillance studies, and/or related fields.

This faculty hire will join our Media Studies area, which focuses on three key areas: Media Technologies and Public Life, Media Structures and Regulation, and Culture and Power in the Media. Further, they should contribute to making the SOJC a destination for graduate and undergraduate students to engage with and understand the ethical, social, and cultural implications of digital technologies. This hire would ideally strengthen SOJC’s ties to other units on campus, including existing collaborations with CAS (e.g., the annual Data|Media|Digital Graduate Symposium), the campus-wide New Media and Culture Certificate program for graduate students, the ethics minor in philosophy, and UO’s Data Sciences Initiative, through a practical orientation to ethical issues in society. Finally, the ideal candidate will have strong potential to mentor undergraduate and graduate students as well as strong potential for and commitment to contributing to a culture of inclusive teaching and evidence of valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This position is based in Eugene.

Required Application Materials

We invite applications from qualified candidates who share our commitment to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and work environment. We also welcome nominations.

  • a diversity statement (see below)

As part of the application process, applicants seeking faculty positions at the University of Oregon are asked to submit a statement about their past, present, and future contributions to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in their professional careers. You may have worked, for example, with members of communities or local governments in politics, or university constituents such as students, staff, or faculty to further the goals of equity and inclusion.

In evaluating Statements of Contributions to Diversity, Equity, and inclusion, search committees often consider the applicants:

  • Awareness of inequities and challenges faced by underrepresented minority students and faculty.
  • Track record (commensurate to career stage) of activities that reduce barriers in education or research for underrepresented minority students and faculty.
  • Vision and plans for how their work will continue to contribute to UO's mission to serve the needs of our diverse state and student population and create an inclusive campus

We particularly welcome applications from scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with diverse populations. Applicants are encouraged to highlight their experience and philosophy with regard to diversity, equity, and inclusion and to address how they integrate these values in research, teaching, engagement, and/or service.

University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA) - Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication[]

The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (CARGC) at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for a “CARGC Postdoctoral Fellowship.” This is a one-year position renewable for a second year based on successful performance.

The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication produces and promotes scholarly research on global communication and public life. As an institute for advanced study dedicated to global media studies, we revisit enduring questions and engage pressing matters in geopolitics and communication. Our vision of “inclusive globalization” recognizes plurality and inequality in global media, politics, and culture. Our translocal approach fuses multidisciplinary “area studies” knowledge with theory and methodology in the humanities and social sciences. This synthesis of deep expertise and interdisciplinary inquiry stimulates critical conversations about entrenched and emerging communicative structures, practices, flows, and struggles. We explore new ways of understanding and explaining the world, including public scholarship, algorithmic culture, the arts, multi-modal scholarship, and digital archives. With a core commitment to the development of early career scholars worldwide, CARGC hosts postdoctoral, doctoral, undergraduate, and faculty fellows who collaborate in research groups, author CARGC Press publications, and organize talks, lectures, symposia, conferences, and summer institutes.

CARGC postdoctoral fellows work on their own research, typically a book manuscript, and collaborate with staff and postdoctoral, doctoral, and undergraduate fellows. They may design and teach one undergraduate course during their second year. They present a CARGC Colloquium and publish one CARGC Paper with CARGC Press. Fellows are provided a stipend of $55,000, a research fund of $3000, health insurance, a work space and a computer in the sixth floor premises — CARGC’s “World Headquarters”— on the Penn campus, and library access. In addition, CARGC will cover up to $1000 in domestic relocation expenses and up to $2000 if moving internationally. Fellows who are selected to teach during their tenure will be paid an additional stipend.

University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA) - The Center on Digital Culture and Society (CDCS)[]


Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Digital Narratives of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Center on Digital Culture and Society (CDCS) at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for two post-doctoral fellowships. To receive full consideration, please submit applications by March 1, 2022.

Themes

As COVID-19 spreads across the globe and poses multiple crises to nations and humanity, our previous assumptions of community, personhood, and even society itself are called into question. Widespread border closure and travel disruptions and restrictions have rendered conventional forms of sociality difficult. Lockdown, social distancing and work-from-home orders have affected different social groups in different ways, with clear adverse impact on women, racial minorities, and the working poor. Pandemic discourses on social media and news networks are often polarized and at their worst, propagate racism, hate, and xenophobia which directly harm already marginalized social groups.

In the face of health, social, and political crises, there has been an explosion of personal and communal storytelling in digital and networked spaces. Individuals share stories about their pandemic experiences on social media. Libraries, community organizations, and researchers create online archives to collect pandemic stories, diaries, videos, and photography. For individuals and communities alike, multimodal and transmedia storytelling becomes an important means of coping in times of pandemic-induced crises.

Stories are a means of meaning-making, but they are not mere descriptions or representations of experiences and realities. They create worlds. Sometimes the worlds created by stories are fiction; they are worlds of imagination. More often, the worlds they create are real or have real consequences, such as when law enforcement authorities tell stories to justify using violence against innocent people or when politicians tell stories to launch a war. Community activists tell stories to induce positive social change. In all these ways, stories are a means of world-making.

CDCS seeks two scholars whose research can contribute to our understanding of the forms, strategies, and impact of digital storytelling about the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite scholars from diverse academic disciplines to submit innovative research proposals. We particularly welcome theoretically informed research proposals on the following themes:

1. Varieties of digital narratives about the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Narratives of disease, health, risks, and vulnerabilities
  • Narratives of self and community
  • Narratives of identity, solidarity, personhood, and social justice
  • Narratives of nations, nationalism, and global geopolitics
  • Narratives of digital radicals, radicalism, protest, and dissent
  • Narratives of emotions, trauma, mourning, and memory
  • Narratives which interrogate the meanings of freedom and modernity
  • Media narratives and counter narratives
  • Counter-narratives of racism, sexism, xenophobia, and various forms of discrimination

2. Forms, media, and narrative strategies of digital storytelling about COVID-19

  • Digital rhetoric and digital storytelling
  • Use of fictional strategies in digital storytelling
  • Cultural repertoires and resources of digital storytelling
  • Issues of characterization and emplotment in storytelling
  • Issues of context and contextualization in storytelling
  • The acoustics and visuality of digital narratives
  • Media of digital storytelling
  • Platform affordances
  • Other narrative strategies

3. Impact of COVID-19 digital-storytelling and the politics and aesthetics of representation and performativity

  • Forms of narrative contestation
  • Digital archives of pandemic narratives
  • Documentation and historical narrativity
  • Digital storytelling, community building, and solidarity
  • Digital storytelling and polarization
  • Consequences for personal, collective, and national identities
  • Articulation of new moral visions for the post-pandemic world
  • Appearance of new political forms and social conflicts linked to digital narratives of the pandemic

4. Other important issues related to digital storytelling about the COVID-19 pandemic

Fellowship

CDCS postdoctoral fellows work on their own research projects and present a colloquium. Fellows are provided a stipend of $55,000, a research fund of $3,000, health insurance, a work space and a computer, and library access. In addition, CDCS will cover up to $1,000 in domestic relocation expenses and up to $2,000 if moving internationally.

There are some opportunities for solo-teaching within the Annenberg Undergraduate Program. Applicants interested in teaching should signal this in their cover letter. Post-doctoral fellows who are selected to teach during their tenure will be paid an additional stipend.

This is a one-year residential fellowship. CDCS strives to be an inclusive community of scholars driven by intellectual curiosity and exchange, and rooted in the life of the Annenberg School, the University of Pennsylvania, and the city of Philadelphia. To foster mentoring and collaboration at all levels, we expect fellows to be fully engaged in the life of the center. The final determination of the residency requirement for the 2022-2023 academic year will be made in the coming months based on university policy related to COVID-19.

Eligibility

We welcome applications from scholars with Ph.D. awarded between May 1, 2020 and August 1, 2022. The appointment typically starts on August 15.

How to Apply

To apply, please send a cover letter, a C.V., a research proposal, a writing sample, and three letters of recommendation. The research proposal, including the bibliography, should not exceed 2,000 words. All application materials except reference letters must be sent as a single PDF document to cdcs@asc.upenn.edu by March 1, 2022. Applicants should arrange for their letters of recommendation to be sent to the same email by the same date.
