Named Professor of Journalism (Tenure Track, Open Rank)

Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism (www.journalism.columbia.edu) is currently seeking a named professor of journalism (tenure track, open rank). As the Craig Newmark Professor of Journalism, the incumbent’s teaching, reporting and research will focus on journalism ethics education and security for the digital age and beyond. The holder of the professorship will also serve as the first director of the Craig Newmark Center for Journalism Ethics and Security and work to advance and amplify the Center’s activities.

The Center will work to modernize and advance journalistic ethics, within the School and in support of the profession, and assert the essential value of ethical, secure and professional journalism in the 21st century. The Newmark professor and the Newmark Center will initiate and lead discussions on ethical issues that arise from a shifting news and information landscape and as they apply to journalistic standards and practices. They will analyze social, economic, cultural and political tendencies that shape journalists’ ethical prospects and choices. They will investigate propaganda and disinformation campaigns; new technologies that affect journalistic practice; and security threats to journalists arising from changes in information production, distribution and consumption. Collaboration with internal and external partners from academia, media and other institutions in journalism will be essential to advancing the Center’s work.

Building on the School’s tradition, the endowed Center will help strengthen the ethics curriculum in all degree programs. As such, the Newmark Professor should have strong grounding in journalistic practice, while also being knowledgeable about how new computational methods and tools, as well as social and cultural forces surrounding journalism, are upending the media landscape. She/he should also be conversant in, and thoughtful about, the tradition of professional journalism ethics. The Newmark Professor will act as convener and thought leader, as well as be the public face of the School, when it comes to these issues.
