Open Rank Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Communication and Technology –
Rutgers University

THE DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNICATION in the School of Communication and
Information at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, seeks
applications from strong scholar-teachers with expertise in *Communication
and Technology*—with a focus on the social, political, discursive, or
psychological processes and impacts of evolving digital technologies
including, but not limited to, topics related to social media, social
networks, virtual environments, international contexts, digital inequality,
privacy and surveillance, community engagement, or mobile communication. We
welcome applications from communication and technology scholars whose work
could intersect with the department’s existing foci in interpersonal
communication, health communication, language and social interaction, and
organizational communication.

The Department of Communication is dedicated to advancing knowledge about
communication and its practice in society. Our faculty scholarship is
focused on Communication and Technology, Health Communication,
Interpersonal Communication, Language and Social Interaction, and
Organizational Communication. The School of Communication and Information
values a climate of cross-department collaboration and interdisciplinary
commitment to the development of discoveries and new ideas in response to
contemporary communication challenges. The School is committed to four
problem-based research foci: health and wellness; global media and
democracy; organizations, policy, and leadership; and social media
interaction & collaboration. We especially seek candidates from
under-represented groups who would further our commitment to scholarly
excellence and community diversity. For more about the Department of
