[ecrea] Tenure track position in media and communication studies at National Research University Higher School of Economics

Tue Feb 12 20:12:21 GMT 2013

The National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) in
Moscow invites applications for tenure-track positions in media and
communication studies within Faculty of Media Communications. We
welcome candidates with excellent backgrounds in all sub-fields,
although it is expected that candidates would be qualified to teach
the mandatory theoretical courses if needed.  Priority will be given
to those candidates with a proven ability to conduct high-level
research as well as experience of teaching advanced courses for
graduate students.

The NRU HSE is a major Russian university aspiring to enhance its
profile as an internationally recognized research university. The HSE
is the only Russian university in the social sciences to receive the
status of a “National Research University” by the Russian federal
government in 2009. The candidate would be expected to publish in
reputable peer-reviewed journals with research support provided by the
university’s Centre for Advanced Studies – a collaborative endeavor
with Moscow’s New Economic School -- and work with research groups in
the Faculty of Media Communication.

A working knowledge of Russian would be an asset although teaching
will be in English.  The tenure-track appointments will start in
September 2013, for 3 years in the first instance.

Successful candidates are required to hold a PhD degree in media,
communication science, journalism or cultural studies and must have a
strong research record. The degree should be from a program with a
strong research orientation. University teaching experience is
important.  A serious commitment to research and university teaching
in Russia is essential. The teaching load is negotiable but will not
exceed two classes (80 minutes each) per week.  The salary range in
the 2013-2014 academic year for an assistant professor would be 1.5–
2.0 million Russian rubles annually (approximately $50-66 K per year
at the current exchange rate) depending on experience and
qualifications. Russian income tax is a flat 13%. An exceptionally
promising candidate could be considered for a higher salary. The HSE
salaries are indexed to inflation. In addition to travel support and
other benefits, research grants are also available.

Please refer to  for HSE and to  for the Faculty of Media Communication and
to  for the Centre for Advanced Studies.

Interested applicants should submit a CV, a recent research paper, a
statement of research interest and at least 2 letters of reference
forwarded directly. The submission of applications by email to Dr.
Martin Gilman, Director, Centre for Advanced Studies ((cas /at/
should be received no later than April 1, 2013.
