The Department of Communication invites applications for a tenure-track
faculty position in the area of digital communication at the level of
Assistant Professor, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2018.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in communication or a related field prior to
the start date and a strong social science background with a record of
publishing innovative, empirical research. We seek candidates whose
fundamental research interest is in the social dynamics, processes, and/or
outcomes of digital technologies. Such a scholar’s research foregrounds the
basic communicative and social processes that are evolving as a consequence
of contemporary media technologies, rather than the specific tools that
currently facilitate these processes. This position will bridge interests
within our department and beyond. Candidates will be expected to teach
courses at undergraduate and graduate levels and be active in professional
and campus service.

The department has garnered considerable national and international
recognition, and boasts cutting-edge research, exemplary teaching, and
intellectual leadership in the discipline and beyond. In addition to these
benefits, the University offers attractive features such as housing
assistance (http://www.housing.ucsb.edu/faculty-housing) and other programs
to incoming faculty.

Applicants should submit a cover letter highlighting qualifications, a
curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, three letters of
recommendation, and three samples of published or completed research to the
appropriate sections of the job search website: https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/

Dr. Andrew Flanagin, at flanagin at comm.ucsb.edu or at (805) 893-7892. This
position will remain open until filled. For primary consideration, all
application materials must be received by October 22, 2017. Reference
letter submissions are also encouraged by this date.

The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to
the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research,
teaching, and service as appropriate for the position.
