The Department of Journalism and Communication at Utah State University’s main campus in Logan invites applications for two nine-month, nonrenewable postdoctoral teaching fellowships in Journalism and Mass Media to begin August 1, 2019.

Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. in journalism, media studies, or communication by August 1, 2019. Fellows will teach three undergraduate courses per semester (fall and spring). These could include introductory survey, media literacy, research, and news writing courses and upper-division courses for majors. Preferred qualifications include the ability to teach other courses (particularly in public relations) and professional experience in the communication industries. The successful fellow may expect a salary commensurate with experience, health benefits, office space, computer, $1,000 in moving expenses, and library privileges.

Review of applications is underway and will continue until the position is filled. Along with the online application and list of at least three recent academic and/or professional references, attach a current curriculum vitae, cover letter, statement of teaching philosophy and/or goals, and sample syllabus for a course the applicant has taught as instructor of record or as a teaching assistant.

The Department of Journalism and Communication (http://journalism.usu.edu) is a professional program incorporating journalism (multimedia, web, broadcast, print), public relations, and social media. The department has eight full-time faculty and about 225 undergraduate student majors. It produces an award-winning local news show, sponsors an active Public Relations Student Society of America chapter, and supports a student-run magazine.
