Position in Communication
Digital and Mobile Media Studies
Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q)
Northwestern University's first international campus, Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q), is searching for a full-time faculty member to join the school's Program in Communication.
Our NU-Q programs in Journalism, Communication, and Liberal Arts work to advance the understanding and practice of freedom of expression. Our goal is to build a Northwestern University legacy of education and discovery in a dynamic area of the world in which excellence in science, technology, health care, and the information economy are fundamental goals of our host nation, Qatar. Many faculty find this to be a geographic area rich in research opportunities.
Toward this end, we seek individuals engaged in visionary lines of teaching, research, and creative activity who will appreciate a culturally diverse community of students, faculty, and staff comprised of women and men drawn from Qatar, South Asia, Europe, Africa, North and South America, and elsewhere. The successful candidate will join faculty colleagues whose teaching experience includes Northwestern, Stanford, Cambridge, Columbia, Minnesota, and other highly ranked schools. Located in Education City in Doha, Qatar, NU-Q collaborates with sister institutions that include Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Georgetown, Texas A&M, and Virginia Commonwealth.
Of special interest are candidates with expertise in digital and mobile media studies. The ideal candidate would be able to teach undergraduate courses on: the impact of the internet and social media; digital and "legacy" communication technologies framed within the history and theory of technology in general, such as "social shaping of technology" approaches; and digital media policy in the context of globalizing media industries. Candidates should be able to demonstrate research interest in the economic, historical, legal, political, and cultural forces shaping digital media evolution, applications, and regulation. Relevant digital industry experience and demonstrated interest in the Middle East will be especially welcome. Earned Ph.D. preferred.
NU-Q faculty-in-residence receive generous research and faculty development support as well a highly competitive salary and a package of benefits and overseas allowances. Candidate should be available to begin August 1, 2016. Rank for these non-tenured positions is based upon qualifications and experience.
Applications received by November 15, 2015 will receive the highest priority. The search will continue and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. To apply, please send a letter of application, a CV, a sample of writing, a statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and the names of three references to: faculty-recruitment at qatar.northwestern.edu<mailto:faculty-recruitment at qatar.northwestern.edu>
Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer of all protected classes including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in Qatar.
