University of Maryland College Park -- Assistant or Associate Professor -- Digital Media/Visual Communication best consideration date Nov 24 (says Nov 17 in ad but this is being extended) Edit


The Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland College Park invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor in Digital Media, with an emphasis on visual communication, to start in August 2017. We seek a scholar with a strong commitment to interdisciplinary research and excellence in teaching visual communication, including data visualization, design (including interaction design), visual media, virtual/augmented reality, and/or video storytelling. We are particularly interested in scholars whose work employing quantitative methods seeks to improve and advance journalistic practices and sustainability. The successful candidate will be able to translate research into teaching of journalistic practice to undergraduate and master’s students, as well as supervise Ph.D. students in Journalism Studies, and secure external research funding.

The Philip Merrill College of Journalism is dedicated to training excellent journalists and producing world-leading research in the field of Journalism Studies. Our college is a  limited-enrollment program at the University of Maryland and our high-achieving undergraduates and master’s students have an outstanding record of gaining jobs in the profession. In the past 10 years, 80 percent of our Ph.D. graduates have secured tenure-track jobs or are employed in the media or government agencies. As the most prominent journalism program in the Washington area, we provide students with unparalleled access to professional and research opportunities.

Ph.D. at date of hire strongly preferred. As a multi-disciplinary college, Merrill has professors with doctoral degrees ranging from American Studies to Computer Science. Our primary interest is whether the candidate’s research is related to journalism and the fields outlined above. Previous teaching and/or mentoring experience is preferred, as well as a demonstrated track record of external research/project funding.
