The Jack J. Valenti School of Communication ( https://www.uh.edu/class/communication/ ) at the University of Houston seeks applicants for an assistant professor in a tenure-track position in journalism to begin in the Fall of 2023. Candidates should have research, teaching and/or professional experience in areas such as multimedia storytelling, visual communication, Artificial Intelligence (AI) or big data analytics and their application to journalism and/or implications for news audiences.

Candidates may use a range of methodological approaches, although we especially are interested in innovative approaches, such as computational methods and web-scraping/data mining. Preference will be given to candidates whose work addresses local/community media, or addresses issues of gender, race/ethnicity, disability, LGBTQIA , class, or other historically underrepresented communities or groups of people.

The candidate will need to have demonstrated a substantive record of research, or the potential thereof. The successful candidate would be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in a developed program that focuses on multimedia journalism, convergent news production, investigative/civic journalism, and global journalism.

We offer a range of undergraduate and graduate degrees, including a Hispanic Media Minor and graduate concentrations in Journalism and Mass Communication and Global and Intercultural communication among others. Approximately half of our 2,000 undergraduate majors specialize in journalism and/or media production. In addition to our state-of-the-art media production and communication technology facilities, Valenti has 16 tenure-line and 8 instructional faculty, and faculty enjoy a steady stream of internal and external grants.

Located in the fourth largest city in the U.S. and a top ten media market, the University of Houston takes pride in having one of the most diverse student bodies in higher education. The University of Houston is a Carnegie-designated Tier One research institution and is the flagship campus of a state-assisted system that enrolls more than 47,000 students. The Chronicle of Higher Education has named the University of Houston as one of the best places to work , and U.S. News & World Report listed UH as one of the most racially/ethnically diverse university in the nation. As such, we welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, and/or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity, equity, and excellence. We are interested in bringing in a diverse pool of candidates that reflects groups previously underrepresented in academia, and/or candidates who are committed to teaching and researching issues and solutions around social injustice.

Applications must include a letter of interest with stated qualifications for the position, a summary of research accomplishments and future goals, copies of representative work, teaching interests and teaching philosophy and curriculum vitae. Summaries of teaching evaluations are welcome. We will begin reviewing applications on October 1, 2022. For more information or questions, please contact the co-chairs of the search committee, Lindita Camaj (lcamaj@uh.edu) and Summer Harlow (sharlow@central.uh.edu). The University of Houston is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.

The University of Houston is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Minorities, women, veterans and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
A Ph.D. in communication or related field is required. Credentials must be obtained prior to the start of employment.
