Department seeks professor for communication ethics
The Department of Communication is seeking a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor to focus on journalism and communication ethics.
Journalism and Communication Ethics
Journalism and other communication professions are undergoing rapid transformation in response to technological innovation, economic disruption and social change. We are seeking a scholar who understands, researches and teaches about ethical communication practices and information values in this environment of increasing cultural diversity and fast-paced technological change.
The ideal candidate would have a sophisticated understanding of ethical issues that arise in both legacy and digital journalistic practice, as well as the capacity to examine journalism ethics within the framework of a broad-based communication program. A candidate could have either a strong background in the philosophical study of communication ethics (including familiarity with traditional ethical reasoning and critiques of that reasoning) or could approach the study of ethical decision-making through the empirical examination of changing information values and practices.
