Two Faculty Positions
AT&T Scholars
Department of Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media
Michigan State University

The Department of Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media 
(TISM) at Michigan State University invites applications for two tenure 
stream faculty positions, each carrying the title of AT&T scholar. 
These positions are supported in part by an endowment from the AT&T 
Foundation. Each position may be filled at either the assistant or 
associate professor level.

Successful candidates are expected to gain recognition through peer 
reviewed scholarly publications and to pursue external funding to 
support their research. Applications are encouraged from scholars 
working within a diverse range of disciplinary and methodological 
traditions whose research addresses the impact, use, design, or 
management of information and communication technologies. A PhD in a 
relevant discipline is required.

The TISM department is home to a dynamic, interdisciplinary faculty 
internationally renowned for their cutting-edge research on the uses 
and implications of information and communication technologies and 
other media. Our curricula address both the theoretical and practical 
aspects of media use, and our alumni have achieved positions of 
prominence in industry, government, and academia. Projects involving 
cross-disciplinary teams are actively pursued and encouraged. Current 
research foci of the department include social media, serious games, 
ICT for development, ecommerce, economics and policy for the 
communications sector, and content for new media platforms. The 
department also houses programs in film, documentary and media design.
