Assistant Professor, New Media Studies
The Department of Global Communications at The American University of Paris invites applications for a permanent position at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 1st, 2009. The department seeks candidates with expertise in new media as well as to teach other more general communications and media courses (such as communication research methods, media globalization, history of communications, PR, political economy of media). Candidates' research and teaching should demonstrate global and cross-cultural understanding. The successful candidate will combine a commitment to scholarship, excellence in teaching, and university service. Candidates should have completed their doctorate at the time of appointment. Fluency in French as well as other languages is an advantage. If a successful candidate does not have the right to work in France, AUP will apply for the appropriate visa. Family relocation, however, depends on French immigration law.

The department specializes in the international and comparative study of media, communication and culture.
