The University of Massachusetts Boston welcomes applications for a 
tenure-track Assistant or tenured Associate Professor with expertise in 
Public Relations/Advertising to begin September 1, 2016.

Candidates are expected to have a PhD in Communication or a related 
field by August 31, 2016. Successful candidates must demonstrate a 
record of excellence in social science research in public 
relations/advertising, and should demonstrate a record of, or strong 
potential for securing extramural funding. It would be beneficial for 
these interests to intersect with our current strengths in media, 
interpersonal, health, political, or intercultural communication.

The instructional requirements for the position include developing and 
teaching an array of undergraduate courses, including courses in the 
candidate's specialty, as well as conventional communication courses. In 
addition to advising undergraduate students in the major, this hire will 
be expected to teach two courses per semester. Additional opportunities 
exist for summer and January session courses. An interest in 
professional and institutional service is required, and professional 
experience in the communication industry could also be a plus.

Members of the Communication Department will be available to answer 
questions at the NCA job fair in November. Review of applications will 
begin on December 1 and will continue until a suitable candidate is 
hired. All materials must be submitted electronically; hard copy 
applications will not be considered.

Please submit a cover letter, C.V., research statement, evidence of 
teaching effectiveness and contact information for three letters of 
recommendation online.
