The Department of Communication at the University of Haifa invites
applications from outstanding candidates for an open-rank position in the
field of interactive media.*  The Department of Communication  currently
offers single and double major B.A. programs in theoretical communication
studies, a research M.A. and Ph.D. programs, as well as a M.A. in strategic
communications. Faculty in the department study and teach the meanings and
effects of communication in an age of evolving technologies and cultures,
using a variety of methodological approaches.  

We seek applicants whose research addresses the contemporary media
landscape, with an emphasis upon interactive media broadly defined (e.g.,
social media, gaming, big data).  Preference will be given to candidates
that have completed a post-doctorate and can teach both theoretical and
applied courses in interactive media, and hence practical experience in the
field will be considered an advantage.    

Only candidates that are expected to have completed their Ph.D. by October
2015 will be considered.  While a Ph.D. in communication is preferred,
excellent candidates in related fields will also be considered.   The
language of instruction at the University of Haifa is Hebrew, but a period
of adjustment is an option.
