Faculty positions to be filled in
Corporate and Digital Video Production

 

The School of Communications is expanding its faculty in two areas this year:

1) Corporate Communications, assistant or associate professor, tenure-track, teaching corporate campaigns, public relations and other courses in the School.

2) Digital Video Production, assistant professor, tenure-track, teaching a new digital media course, television production, corporate video or core courses in the School.

We seek faculty with a love of teaching, strong professional experience and a Ph.D. or terminal degree. Elon prefers not to hire faculty who would be ABD next year. Elon does hire at the associate professor rank if merited by academic experience; a four-year period is required for a professor tenured elsewhere to earn tenure at Elon.

Faculty members teach two courses one semester and three the other, with one course (or a Study Abroad) in a special January term. Elon has four-hour courses, with slightly shorter semesters. The "fourth hour" is designed to be experiential so that students engage in active learning in the small class settings. Faculty members often teach our opening course on the role of communication in society and participate in Elon's General Studies program (for instance, a Communications professor this year is teaching a course titled Freedom of Expression).

Faculty members are expected to be intellectually active. By the time of tenure consideration, they should have a record of scholarship consisting of published research or juried creative activity in addition to conference presentations. At Elon, teaching is the first priority, and scholarship and service (a meaningful presence and contribution within the university and profession) are of equal secondary importance.

Elon, one of the nation's most innovative private universities, is situated in the beautiful Piedmont close to Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

Elon is renowned for its student engagement, internship programs and international emphasis. Two-thirds of the 4,400 students come from out-of-state, primarily the Eastern Seaboard. The School of Communications houses 20 percent of the student body, with 30 faculty and staff and 850 majors in broadcasting, corporate communications, journalism and film studies. The School is in a new facility with state-of-the-art TV studios, editing suites and Mac computer labs.

Elon salaries are highly competitive. Minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. EEOE.
