Health Communication Technology
The Department of Communication and the Department of  
Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media at Michigan State  
University are seeking an individual to fill an open-rank tenure-track  
faculty position in Health Communication Technology beginning fall  
2010. Candidates will pursue funded scholarly research opportunities  
in areas that focus on the improvement of health services through  
communication technology. Examples of these include telemedicine,  
online health information and services, and the use of technology in  
health communication such as electronic medical records. The  
successful candidate will design new health communication technology  
curricula and teach existing courses in computer mediated  
communication, communication technology, research methods,  
organizational communication, and/or human computer interaction. A PhD  
in Communication, Information Studies, Management Information Systems,  
Computer Science, Health Informatics or a related discipline is  

Computational Journalism
The School of Journalism and the Department of Telecommunication,  
Information Studies & Media at Michigan State University are seeking  
an innovative, dynamic individual to fill a full-time, tenure stream  
position in Computational Journalism at the Assistant Professor  
level.  Candidates will be expected to gain recognition through peer- 
reviewed scholarly publications. Faculty are also expected to pursue  
external funding to support their research activity, which may result  
in a reduced teaching load. Candidates will join an enthusiastic,  
multidisciplinary faculty team and should be able to contribute  
through research and design experience at the intersection of  
journalism and information or computer science. To fill this position  
we seek a person who uses information and communication technology to  
collect and disseminate news in a cutting edge fashion. The ability to  
use information technology to create new tools, services or technical  
systems to both gather and disseminate news is highly desired.
