There have been bunch notes out on the list recruiting faculty. I
joined the faculty at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut earlier
this year. I was looking for an opportunity to move from an Research 1
to a school that balances research with a dedication to teaching.
Admittedly, I've only been here for a little while, but I've been very
impressed with what I've seen. We have a great group of students, and
despite being a large "small" school (we have the largest
undergraduate program in the state, I believe), class sizes remain
small, and support of faculty for teaching and research is excellent.
Perhaps best of all, there is a strong entrepreneurial spirit on the
campus, and the university is attracting some outstanding faculty. I
suspect that if you haven't heard of Quinnipiac in the past, that will
be changing.

The School of Communication is hiring four tenure-track faculty this
year, and will be continuing to add faculty in the coming years. We
are looking for someone who can mix an online media production
background with strong theory and research and teach in our MS in
Interactive Communication. In particular, if you work in social
computing it would be great to have you up here. Please don't hesitate
to drop me a note, and I am happy to respond to any questions
