The Department of Drama and Speech Communication at the University of Waterloo invites applications for an Assistant Professor position in Speech Communication with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2017.

The program offers courses in four primary areas: Interpersonal/Organizational Communication, Intercultural Communication, Performance Studies, and Public and Digital Communication. The Department of Drama and Speech Communication is home to three programmatic units, including Digital Arts Communication, Speech Communication, and Theatre and Performance. There are regular opportunities across all three units for interdisciplinary collaboration in teaching, research, and creative work.

The successful candidate will have a strong research profile as well as demonstrated teaching experience, will have a PhD in hand or be ABD with dissertation near completion, and will bring a specialization in one or more of the four programmatic areas articulated in the previous paragraph.

Ideally, the person appointed to this position will also be able to teach courses in the Theatre and Performance program.

The individual hired will teach courses and perform service in the Speech Communication program, and perform service in the Department of Drama and Speech Communication. The Speech Communication program delivers approximately 60 sections of Speech Communication courses annually to students outside the major, and faculty members in the unit contribute to curricular and pedagogical oversight of these courses. A demonstrated pedagogical commitment to theoretically-informed practice, student-centered learning, and engagement of broad public concerns is desirable. Expertise in qualitative and/or creative work is welcome. Duties include research, teaching, and academic service.
