The Communication Studies Department at Northeastern University invites
applicants for an open rank, tenure-­‐line position, tenure-­‐on-­‐entry
full or associate professor or tenure-­‐track assistant professor. This
position reflects our department’s commitment to understanding and
enhancing the effectiveness of communication systems, processes, and
infrastructure as they relate to public life, civil society, and
professional practice.

Position Description: Communication Technology, Behavior, and Society. We

methodological approaches to analyzing social media, mobile communication,
and other information technologies including their design, use, contents,
forms, effects, and social implications. We are particularly interested in

specializations including public advocacy and argumentation; political
communication; science, health, and risk communication; organizational and
interpersonal communication; digital communication and social networks; and
media production. Two, we are located within a major private global
research university and a leader in worldwide experiential learning, urban
engagement and interdisciplinary research. Also, the College has a unique
combination of disciplines, including Architecture, Art + Design, Game
Design, Communication Studies, Journalism, Media and Screen Studies, Music,
and Theatre. Three, we are in Boston, a thriving urban center of culture
and innovation with extensive global connections. See:
