Kansas State University's A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications seeks applicants for a tenure-track, assistant professor position in journalism and digital media. The candidate we seek must have a strong commitment to quality teaching, excellent scholarly or creative work, effective student advising and serving a diverse population. Review of applications begins Feb. 15, 2013, and continues until the position is filled.

The nationally accredited A.Q. Miller School has a student body of about 600 and offers B.A./B.S. degrees in advertising, journalism/digital media, and public relations as well as an M.S. degree in Mass Communications. Our long history of service is national in scope, as we house the Huck Boyd National Center for Community Media and serve as the national headquarters for the Journalism Education Association. We also have a tradition of providing “hands on” student experiences through award-winning student media and professional organizations.

Required qualifications include demonstrated teaching skills, a completed Ph.D. in journalism, mass communications, or a closely related field; a defined program of active research in areas such as but not limited to reporting practices, social media, visual communications, entrepreneurial journalism or other emerging areas of research in journalism or mass communications; an ability to contribute to graduate teaching and thesis supervision; advise student organizations; and the potential to garner extracurricular funding.

Multimedia storytelling is the foundation of our undergraduate curriculum, and a successful candidate must have strong, demonstrated capabilities and experience in both traditional journalism skills and digital media technology. Teaching areas may include but are not limited to reporting and production, visual communication, entrepreneurial journalism, sports reporting, business journalism or database journalism and graphic visualization. Our faculty is a close-knit group that emphasizes teamwork and strong student-teacher relationships.
