Major Duties and Responsibilities:
We are seeking an innovative scholar who can teach media production classes such as digital storytelling, podcasting, audio or video production, and other courses as needed. Knowledge of Adobe Creative Cloud is favored. The department is particularly interested in candidates whose research record emphasizes underrepresented groups, with preference given to scholarship concerning Latino/a/x experiences and issues.
Our new colleague will be eager to work with Regis College’s increasingly diverse student population. As of fall 2020, 37.4% of our total student body identified as non-white and within that population 23.5% identify as Hispanic/Latino/a/x. Our fall 2020 Freshman class consisted of 55% of students who identified as non-white and 38.75% students who identified as Hispanic/Latino/a/x.
Our ideal candidate holds a strong teaching record and could teach/develop courses in our Media & Society emphasis area as well as other classes such as media literacy, research methods, first-year writing seminar, and Communication capstone. While Regis values research (and a record of sustained scholarship is required for tenure), a commitment to inclusive teaching is essential; the candidate must demonstrate the skills to work effectively with racially, socioeconomically, and religiously diverse student populations. The teaching load (including college core courses) is six courses per year.
EDUCATION: A Ph.D. (or advanced ABD with verifiable May 2023 completion date) in Communication, Media Studies, or relevant field is required.
APPLICATION: To apply, please submit your CV, a cover letter, contact information for three references, and a one-paragraph statement on each of the following topics: 1) your teaching philosophy, 2) your current research agenda and future research goals, and 3) your contribution to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.
Review of applications will begin October 15, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
