Job Posting--Assistant Professor of Media Studies @ Purchase College-SUNY

Founded on the principle that artists and scholars are indispensable to each other and the pursuit of social justice, Purchase College combines professional conservatory programs in the visual and performing arts and distinguished programs in the liberal arts and sciences.

The Media Studies Program invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor to join our faculty, beginning Fall 2019. We seek a scholar of media cultures who will also contribute to the recently inaugurated MFA in Media Arts and Culture. We are particularly interested in candidates with an interdisciplinary approach (critical race theory, decolonial/postcolonial studies, disability studies, indigenous studies, and gender/queer studies) with research in one or more the following areas: artificial intelligence, critical data studies, digital activism, media archeology, platform studies, and social media. Media Studies is intertwined with the Anthropology Program; therefore, familiarity with ethnographic methods is highly desirable.

The candidate should have a record of excellence in teaching, and a passion for working closely with students is essential. The successful candidates will be committed to student learning, student success, and a liberal arts education. Responsibilities include teaching 5 courses and supervising 4-6 senior projects per academic year. Professors in Media Studies typically teach 3 required courses and 2 electives in the faculty’s area of research. Other duties include mentoring upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students, academic advising and community service (which encompasses committee work as well as College, School, and Board of Study governance).

Located 25 miles north of Manhattan in Westchester County, the campus celebrates diversity and creativity, encouraging students to “Think Wide Open.” Purchase College is part of the State University of New York system.


PhD in Media Studies or related field. ABD candidates with completion date by May 2019 will be considered but must have the PhD in hand by the time of appointment. Evidence of excellence in teaching at the undergraduate college level, or of potential as an effective teacher, is also required. Candidates from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants must attach the following to the online employment application:

1)    Cover letter should discuss research and teaching, as well as how the candidate will contribute to the Bachelor’s and MFA program.

2)    CV
