The University of Washington seeks a tenure track assistant or advanced
assistant professor in the area of race/ethnicity and communication in the
Department of Communication.  

Candidates should have interests in race/ethnicity and communication,
defined broadly to include face-to-face, on-line, mediated, or mass-mediated
contexts. Particular focus may include race and its intersections with
issues of class, disability, sexuality, and gender,  the social construction
of race in relationship to issues of power; the shifting nature of
conceptualizations of race and other cultural identities; the enactment or
challenging of racial conceptions through media representations or public
discourse; rhetorical and discourse approaches to race and ethnicity. 

The Department of Communication is centrally involved in the
interdisciplinary Washington Institute on Ethnicity, Race, and Sexuality;
has been recognized as a campus leader in the retention of under-represented
minority students, and includes several faculty who are involved in
research, teaching, and service related to race/ethnicity.

Faculty are expected to conduct research, teach 4 courses during a
three-quarter academic year, and supervise graduate students at the master's
and doctoral levels.  Applicants must demonstrate a potential for excellence
in research and teaching, and the ability to contribute to the Department's
curriculum.  Experience mentoring students of under-represented groups would
be highly valued.  Candidates must have earned or be close to completion of
a Ph.D. by September 2008.  Candidates should send a letter of application,
curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, copies of
teaching evaluations, and three letters of recommendation.

The start date for this position is September 16, 2008.  Applications will
be reviewed starting October 20, 2007, and until the position is filled.
