Job Summary

The College of Media, Communications and Information encourages applications for two Advertising Strategy Scholar in Residence positions. These full-time faculty positions within the Department of Advertising, Public Relations and Media Design will each teach eight courses per year, playing a key role in evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of our advertising strategy curriculum and developing standard syllabi for core courses.

Each position will have an 18-month term. Anticipated start date is Fall 2022.
