Description

Who is Saint Louis University? Founded in 1818, Saint Louis University is one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious Catholic universities.

All About You

Saint Louis University, a Catholic, Jesuit institution dedicated to student learning, research, health care and service, is seeking applicants for two non-tenure-track positions in the Department of Communication. The positions are at the instructor or assistant professor level, to begin in Fall 2022.

In the 2022-2023 academic year, SLU is launching an exciting new university- wide undergraduate core curriculum, which includes an oral and visual communication course requirement. The primary teaching responsibilities for these positions will involve teaching oral and visual communication courses (such as Public Speaking and Communicating in Groups and Teams). Opportunities exist to develop additional courses for this component of the core curriculum.

Candidates will teach other communication courses on an as-needed basis. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: advocacy, health communication, intercultural communication, science communication, technology and culture, and visual communication.

We are seeking individuals with a strong commitment to social justice, equity and inclusion in their teaching and creative and innovative approaches to communication education. Non-tenure-track faculty in our department typically teach seven courses over the academic year. Candidates are also expected to contribute to the intellectual and professional life of the department and participate in service.

Requirements:

  • Earned master's degree or Ph.D. by August 1, 2022
  • Documented teaching experience and excellence
  • Communication is a thriving department in the College of Arts and Sciences, with about 150 undergraduate majors, 20 minors, 20 master's students and 12 full-time faculty members. We have an undergraduate curriculum that stresses both the theoretical understanding and professional application of communication within three different concentrations: communication studies; integrated strategic communication; and journalism and media studies. We stress proficiency in production/technology across our curriculum. We also emphasize cultural competence, ethical reflection and a commitment to social justice. Our master's program includes courses in the areas of communication studies, media studies and strategic communication. The department has a Communication Media Center, Studio Production Suite and multiple computer labs to support student learning related to technology and production.

    Saint Louis University serves approximately 13,000 students. Our campus is in an ethnically diverse city neighborhood that features a major performing-arts district and a wide array of cultural institutions. The university's benefits package includes a comprehensive tuition benefit for employees, spouses and dependent children.

    All applications must be made online at https: // slu.wd5.myworkdayjobs.com/Careers.

    The “My Experience” page will ask you to upload your CV/Resume. On that same “My Experience” page, you can also upload four additional files. On that page, please upload the following materials: (1) a cover letter; (2) a curriculum vitae; (3) a teaching statement accompanied by evidence of teaching effectiveness; and (4) a list with names, phone numbers and email addresses of at least three professional references. For additional information, contact Dr. Tim Huffman, the search chair, at tim.huffman@slu.edu.

    Review of applications will begin January 31, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled.
