The position is affiliated with the Thomas Jay Harris Institute for Hispanic and International Communication. This position may be hired in any of the college’s four departments—advertising, communication studies, public relations or journalism & electronic media. We seek an energetic scholar who will support the Institute, mentor graduate students, and assist in managing Institute initiatives, including the International Journal of Hispanic Media (www.internationalhispanicmedia.org).  The successful candidate must be eligible to work in the United States.  Appointment begins September 1, 2018 with faculty on duty August 22, 2018.

Applicants with experience in teaching courses related to Hispanic media, experience in the media industry and/or community development, and background in academic publishing. The ability to review manuscripts in fluent Spanish is a plus.

Instructional duties would comprise 30% of this position’s overall assignment, equating to a teaching load of four courses (2-2) per nine-month academic year, with the opportunity to teach additional courses during summer or intersessions for additional compensation. Teaching will include bilingual classes.  Research would count for 40% of the assignment; the appointee will be expected to actively seek external research funding individually or in conjunction with other faculty.

It occupied a renovated office suite in 2016. Institute-affiliated faculty and students collaborate on research and outreach projects. As noted, the Institute publishes the International Journal of Hispanic Media.

The College of Media & Communication serves approximately 1,600 undergraduate majors, 235 MA students in three programs, and 35 Ph.D. students. It maintains high standards for teaching, even as its reputation as a media research center expands¾junior faculty hires from top doctoral programs in recent years reflect this ascendance. In addition to Hispanic and international communication, research strengths among college faculty include strategic, science, health, and political communication as well as social scientific research methods. The College’s Center for Communication Research offers state-of-the-art facilities for studying audience responses to media messages (www.depts.ttu.edu/comc/research/ccr/), and the Communication Training Center trains instructors, faculty and graduate students to enhance oral and visual communication skills (www.depts.ttu.edu/ctc).
