The USC Annenberg School Post-Doctoral fellowships in Digital Diversity

USC's School of Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication and
Journalism is seeking two Postdoctoral Scholars. The Annenberg School
Post-Doctoral fellowships in Digital Diversity will support new scholars
interested in faculty and research careers who will contribute to diversity
and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research
and service. In particular we are interested in work at the intersection of
diversity and digital informatics.

As communications media serve increasingly diverse and global
constituencies, understanding of the ways in which differences in gender,
class, ethnicity, national origin and other 'fault lines" can divide us and
present barriers to communication becomes even more critical. We seek
candidates who are interested in a broad array of topics in the area,
including barriers to adoption of digital technologies by underrepresented
groups; media diversity and public policy; representation of women and
minorities in the media; social networking and political empowerment;
assistive and adaptive technologies for persons with disabilities; and
diverse voices in user-generated content.  Candidates should have
competencies in robust quantitative and qualitative techniques for mining
and analysis of large data sets from media sources across multiple
platforms.

Our program will offer two postdoctoral research fellowships for up to two
years each (2014-2016), which will include professional development and
faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in the fields of digital diversity
whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal
opportunity.  Fellowship recipients perform research in a wide range of
methodologies within the discipline of communication, with a focus on
diversity within digital media.

Candidates who earned their Ph.D. after July 1, 2012 or will have their
degree in hand by July 1, 2014 are eligible to apply.  The Ph.D.
degree must come from an institution other than USC.   Candidates will
come from diverse fields, but should also have an interest in, or a
potential for, a wider contribution to the interdisciplinary field of
informatics and digital knowledge.

Digital Diversity Postdoctoral Scholars will receive $50,000 per year, plus
health insurance, with the possibility of receiving up to $10,000 in
research and conference travel support. Postdoctoral Scholars will be
expected to teach one course each year.

Applications:

Applicants are asked to submit their credentials including a letter
describing their background, interests and areas of expertise, their
curriculum vita or resume, three references and samples of their recent
scholarly or professional work through USC's job site at the following URL:
http://jobs.usc.edu/postings/15371.

Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled; review of
applications will begin March 1st. We hope to announce the selection of
postdoctoral scholars between March 15 and April 1, 2014.

The University of Southern California values diversity and is committed to
equal opportunity in employment. Candidates from underrepresented groups are
especially encouraged to apply.
