The Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University is seeking to
hire in organizational communication for an appointment in at the rank of Assistant
Professor. The successful candidate will be expected to publish innovative research,
teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and perform professional service
commensurate with rank.  We welcome applicants from a range of theoretical and
methodological approaches who study either formal or informal organizations, or the
process of organizing more broadly. We are particularly interested in scholars who
study the communicative aspects of distributed work, social movement processes,
innovation, globalization, technological change, virtual worlds, and organizing
processes in healthcare and the creative industries.  The position includes the
opportunity to teach in a professional master’s degree program.

The Department of Communication Studies supports a popular undergraduate major and
graduate programs in Media, Technology, and Society, Interaction and Social
Influence, and Rhetoric and Public Culture.  Scholarship includes leading work on
new media, social networks, and the cultural determination of the public sphere.
Through special resources for research support and scholarly event programming, the
department is able to offer rich opportunities for scholarly development.  School of
Communication faculty also can have opportunities during their career at
Northwestern to teach and conduct research at the Northwestern University campus in
Doha, Qatar.

Candidates should send a cover letter, CV, a publication or work in progress,
evidence of teaching effectiveness, and three letters of recommendation. We
particularly encourage applications by women and minorities.  The search committee
will start reviewing files by November 30, but will continue reviewing files until
the position is filled.  Start date for the position is September 2011. 
Applications should be sent to Ellen Wartella, 2240 Campus Drive, Evanston, IL
