Northwestern University Department of Communication Studies

Platforms, Identity & Culture

The Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University seeks to hire an assistant professor specializing in new technological platforms. The appointment will begin on September 1, 2020. Successful candidates will be expected to develop a strong program of scholarly research; contribute directly to undergraduate and graduate instruction in the department; and perform service. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Communication or a related field. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
Ideal candidates will research how platforms affect or relate to culture from humanistic or social science perspectives. We are open to the study of a variety of platforms, including social media, television/film, tech, AR/VR, gaming, music, radio/podcast, art, fashion, news/journalism or community-driven platforms. We are particularly interested in candidates whose work engages cultural identity (e.g. race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability, citizenship status and class) and whose work will complement the department's existing expertise in community-based or creative approaches to understanding, critiquing, or experimenting with platforms.
