Assistant or Associate Professor of Communication (Open Rank)
Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism
The School of Communication at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism seeks to fill a faculty position in theory development and research in communication networks. The School seeks a scholar who expands the theoretical knowledge of communication networks, whose research will lead to important insights into communication network processes, and whose teaching will inspire our undergraduate and graduate students. Exceptional applicants at the Assistant or Associate rank are encouraged to apply.
The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. in communication or a related field and demonstrate excellence in at least one programmatic line of research, address important societal issues and practical real-world applications. The candidate is expected to help the school continue to grow our commitment to network scholarship. Communication networks are an integral part of almost all facets of contemporary life including teams and groups, organizations and institutions, and the global political economy. These networks connect diverse and global constituencies that differ in terms of gender, class, race, ethnicity, national origin and other differences. We seek a colleague whose academic career demonstrates an interest in a broad array of topics in connectivity such as the semantic World Wide Web, social and enterprise networks, collaboration networks, team networks, political mobilizing, network equality, and crowdsourcing. Candidates should have competencies in robust network analysis techniques for examining big data from a wide array of communication networks. We seek someone who will teach our graduate-level network analysis methods courses, so previous graduate teaching experience in this area is preferred.
The candidate will play a leading role in our research center Annenberg Networks Network (ANN), and will also be affiliated with the Annenberg Institute for Diversity and Empowerment to explore the intersection of communication networks and diversity. We anticipate that our new colleague will foster collaboration with other academic units across the University, and with external partners as well.
