In accordance with university standards, our tenure-track colleague will be a teacher-scholar, with an emphasis on excellent teaching followed by an active research program.

Candidates may come from a wide range of disciplines, such as media studies, rhetoric, communication studies, communication science, mass communication, or journalism. A Ph.D. is preferred, but ABD candidates who will have completed their degree by the start date are strongly encouraged to apply.

Additionally, our department has embedded community-engaged learning pedagogy and experiences throughout our curricula. An ideal candidate would demonstrate an interest in community-engaged learning, which is clearly connected to the University’s mission and it institutionally supported. Our department has made use of excellent on-campus and professional development resources, and we look forward to additional and enhanced collaborations we can develop with a new colleague.

An equitable, inclusive and diverse campus and curriculum are critical to Xavier University’s educational mission. Therefore, the Communication Arts department is committed to enhancing equity, inclusion and diversity, including our capacity for teaching students from all backgrounds.  Candidates who have experience working with a diverse range of faculty, staff, and students, and who can contribute to the climate of inclusivity, are encouraged to identify their experiences in these areas.

The successful candidate will join Xavier faculty in the 500-year-old Jesuit Catholic tradition of academic excellence in the liberal arts serving a diverse population of students. Xavier’s location in Cincinnati allows faculty to work with community partners to develop engaged learning and internship opportunities. Xavier is a member of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities as well as the Big East. U.S. News and World Report has ranked the University 20 years in a row among the top 10 Midwest colleges and universities.
