The School of Journalism within the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin invites outstanding applicants for the position of School Director and tenured full Professor, holding an endowed professorship. The Director will provide academic and executive leadership for the School, and will lead a widely respected faculty dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, and practice. The Director will provide vision and direction for a program and field in transition, as journalism education adapts to changes in the profession and the industry.

Established in 1914, the School of Journalism has long been recognized as a leader in journalism education, preparing its students to work in an ever-changing variety of media platforms while also grounding them in fundamental journalistic values and skills. The School’s mission is to “educate ethical, socially responsible, well-rounded and fair-minded reporters and producers of visual and verbal messages [and to] prepare students for lifelong learning beyond their first job by teaching them to be active participants in society who can critically consume as well as produce media content.”

The School’s faculty includes professionals who continue to contribute to and remain current with developments in their field, as well as scholars conducting cutting-edge research relevant to the profession and to a larger democratic society. In a recent evaluation by the ACEJMC, the School was praised for the faculty’s level of scholarly productivity, visibility in both academic and professional circles, and exceptional student-faculty relations.

The faculty, which includes internationally renowned journalists and scholars, gathers together diverse backgrounds and extensive experience in both the traditional areas of print, broadcast, and photojournalism and more contemporary genres, such as data journalism and multimedia journalism, including combined expertise in digital production (video, audio, text, and graphics) and in social media, mobile technology, and podcasts.

In addition to a large and innovative undergraduate program, the School has a highly regarded graduate program for students who intend to work as professional journalists or who are interested in teaching and conducting advanced research in the field. As of Fall 2016, the School had more than 550 students enrolled in undergraduate studies, approximately 40 working towards a Master of Arts degree, and approximately 40 students in the Ph.D. program.

Journalism is one of the five highly regarded schools and departments in the Moody College of Communication, one of the largest and most comprehensive communication colleges in the country. It benefits from its collaborations with Radio-Television-Film, Advertising & Public

Candidates who share the values expressed in the School’s mission are encouraged to apply.

Additional qualifications will include: (1) management experience, preferably within an educational environment, (2) a commitment to diversity within the profession and the School,
(3) an appreciation for the merits of having a school of both professional journalists who have entered academia and research-focused academics, and (4) an entrepreneurial spirit and a commitment to experimentation with curriculum and ways of learning that make the School unique.
