The Communications Department at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications invites applications for a full-time teaching position, in the area of communications law beginning in fall 2018, at the rank of associate or full professor. A candidate with extensive relevant professional experience will be considered for a position as a Professor of Practice. A Ph.D. or J.D. is required.

The successful candidate will have a strong track record in research, policy development, or practice in the field of communication law. We are especially interested in candidates with specialties in 1) digital privacy, or 2) media and technology law.

Successful candidates will demonstrate an interest in working with students from the undergraduate to the doctoral level. At the graduate level we regularly offer courses on media law for our professionally oriented master’s students. At the undergraduate level, we regularly offer specific courses on communications law for journalism students; for public relations and advertising students; and for students in the television, radio and film industries. The ideal candidate should feel comfortable teaching any of these classes; the course load will be 4 or 5 courses a year depending on background. The ability to teach other communication classes in areas consistent with the candidate’s experience is also desirable, including the possibility of specialty law courses.

The successful candidate should expect a variety of service duties, including: academic and career advising of undergraduate and graduate students; mentoring junior faculty; department, school and university committee service; and occasional community outreach.
