Hi all -
we have a number of 1-year positions available at Rutgers University (New Jersey).
There is a possibility (but no guarantee) that some of these may turn into a
tenure-track position at some point after the first year. It is my understanding
that this will not be decided at the time of hiring, but at some later point
throughout the 2005/2006 year. Ask the search chair for clarification.

Please note the classes that we are hoping to fill are for majors (Juniors/seniors)
and are topically open, as long as they fit within our curriculum. That is, we are
not trying to fill a particular class, rather categories of classes (3/400 level).

If you go to the SCILS, Rutgers website, please check only the classes listed under
"Communication." The "Media Studies" department and the "Information Technology and
Informatics" major are not the same as the "Communication" department. They are in
the same school, but not in our department. That sometimes causes confusion and
people apply for the wrong job/to the wrong department. Any class that starts with
the numbers 04:192 is taught by the Department of Communication.

See below for the full job ad. If you have further questions, please contact Dr.
Kathryn Greene, the search chair.
