UW-Madison’s Department of Life Sciences Communication (LSC), located in the College of Agricultural & Life Sciences (CALS), seeks applications for a tenure track assistant professor in strategic communication in the life sciences.

The successful candidate will conduct research in strategic and/or marketing communication, ideally using as contexts of inquiry one or more of CALS key strategic areas (health, food, bioenergy, climate change, community development, ecosystems; for more information see http://www.cals.wisc.edu/departments/office-of-dean-and-director-2/cals-strategic-planning/basic-sciences/). The candidate will teach LSC undergraduate courses in the area of marketing communication in the life sciences and in the fast-expanding CALS Certificate in Business Management for Agricultural & Life Sciences.

Ability to work in interdisciplinary settings and willingness to work with units across CALS will make this new colleague a perfect addition to CALS faculty.
