The Communication, Culture and Technology (CCT) Graduate Program at Georgetown University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Media and Journalism. Candidates’ research areas should include, but are not limited to, critical studies in journalism and mass media; relationships between news media, politics, and public opinion; social and cultural representations in media, including social media; and changes in the production, distribution, and consumption of news content resulting from new technologies, such as data journalism. An international dimension will be an advantage. Candidates should be prepared to advise students on their academic program and to mentor thesis projects.
CCT is an interdisciplinary Master of Arts program that focuses on the ways that new technologies of communication and digital media are reshaping human experience on all levels from local to global, and how these technologies are redefining the practice of science, research, education, government, media, business, and culture and the arts. Faculty members are expected to contribute broadly to the interdisciplinary research and teaching of the program.
