Description

The Department of Communication invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of intergroup communication at the level of Assistant Professor, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2019. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in communication or a related field prior to the start date and a strong social science background with a record of publishing innovative, empirical research.

Intergroup communication concerns the ways in which intergroup relations affect, and are affected by, communication. We seek candidates whose work focuses on either traditional (e.g., language, gender, race and ethnicity) or emerging areas of inquiry, such as health, evolution, cognition, and new media. The successful candidate will be a social scientist whose work foregrounds the role of intergroup communication in their area of expertise. Candidates are expected to teach courses at undergraduate and graduate levels and be active in professional and campus service.

The department has garnered considerable national and international recognition, and boasts cutting-edge research, exemplary teaching, and intellectual leadership in the discipline and beyond. In addition to these benefits, the University offers attractive features such as housing assistance (http://www.housing.ucsb.edu/faculty-housing) and other programs to incoming faculty.

Applicants should submit a cover letter highlighting qualifications, a curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, the names and contact information for three references (we will contact them for letters), and three samples of published or completed research to the appropriate sections of the job search website: https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF01107. Questions should be directed to the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Scott Reid, at scottreid@comm.ucsb.edu or at (805) 893-7847. This position will remain open until filled. For primary consideration, all application materials must be received by Sept 15, 2018. Reference letter submissions will be encouraged by this date.

The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service as appropriate for the position.
