Hello, everyone,

If you are not already in the air for AIR--and for those who cannot
join us this year--I thought I would note that we are hiring for
someone to direct our MS in Interactive Communication program at
Quinnipiac University.

The official announcement is below. In short, we are looking for a
"administrator-professional-scholar"--someone who has experience
administering university programs (ideally, online graduate programs),
someone who can demonstrate significant experience in the interactive
industry (e.g., producer for online news or entertainment), and
someone who has a solid grounding in new media theory and practice. If
that seems too specific, we're mainly looking for interesting people
to work with, and people ambitious enough to be able to foster the top
program in the area. Since we pulled from the AIR crowd for our last
hire, we hope there may be someone who fits this bill as well, and is
looking for a move to Connecticut.

Please drop me a note if you are in Vancouver and would like to chat
informally about the position, the university, or anything else, for
that matter :).

closely with the Associate Vice President for Online Programs on
marketing, recruitment, and corporate outreach efforts. The Director
will also teach in the program. This position is available August

An advanced degree is required, and a high level of technical
proficiency is expected. Experience in online environments, strong
leadership abilities, and excellent communication skills are
essential. Previous administrative experience and media professional
experience required.
