Two Faculty Positions, Texas A &M University, Department of Communication, Open Rank - Assistant/Associate Professor The Department of Communication at Texas A&M University invites applications for two open-rank (Assistant and/or Associate Professor), tenure- track/tenure positions. These are full-time, 9-month academic appointments, starting fall 2022. We are seeking applications from communication scholars who have the promise of national and/or international prominence and who complement the department's existing areas of strength. Applications are welcome from communication scientists engaged in research in a wide range of subdisciplines, including media studies, health communication, organizational communication, journalism studies, and political communication, as well as other foundational areas.

For both of the positions, we seek candidates who conduct research on topics related to social justice and/or social change, including but not limited to the following areas: social movements, civic engagement, health disparities, media literacy, media processes and effects, strategic communication, intergroup dialogue and deliberation, religious studies, communication technology, algorithms, ethics, race and ethnic studies, public policy, and law.

Qualified candidates will also be able to contribute to our graduate training program by teaching advanced research methods courses in quantitative, qualitative and/or mixed analytic approaches, as well as entry-level methods and/or statistics courses at the undergraduate level. We welcome candidates with specialization in a wide range of methodological and data analytic traditions, including but not limited to experimental, survey, textual, computational, network analysis, media analytic, meta-analytic, and/or data visualization.

As a department, we promote the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in our workplace and community and welcome applications from candidates whose careers demonstrate shared commitments to these values. We also encourage applications from candidates who can help the department serve students from communities that have historically been underrepresented in the Communication fields, particularly candidates who conduct research on topics related to the promotion of DEI. As a university, Texas A&M University seeks to become a Hispanic-Serving Institution, and so we welcome applications from candidates with a history of serving Latinx populations through their research, teaching, and/or service.

Review of applications will begin on November 7, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. We are particularly interested in candidates who will contribute to the department through excellence in teaching, research, and service.


A PhD or other doctoral degree is required in communication or a related field.
