[ecrea] Narrative and Communication, Assistant Professorship
Thu Oct 18 22:06:19 GMT 2018
Please check out our website to see the list of colleagues in the
ICCIT. We’ve been growing fast and are planning to have four new
tenure-stream faculty joining us next Summer.
The Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology
(ICCIT) at the University of Toronto Mississauga invites applications
for a full-time tenure-stream appointment in the area of Narrative and
Communication, at the rank of Assistant Professor. The position start
date is July 1, 2019.
The successful candidate must be a practicing writer who researches and
teaches in the area of narrative nonfiction or nonfiction story.
Narrative, as we think of it here, involves the application of tools and
techniques developed mainly through fiction and the arts applied to the
purposes of excellent journalistic nonfiction—that is, telling a true
story with imaginative power, with expressive skill, and with solid
research as a base. Specific areas of expertise may include journalistic
writing, narrative as a research methodology, narrative and archival
research, multi-media and web-based storytelling, digital innovation and
narrative, or cross-cultural communication built around story. The
successful candidate will be expected to mount an innovative,
independent, competitive and externally funded research program, and
will also bring theory and practice into their teaching within the
Professional Writing and Communication program in the ICCIT.
Candidates must have a PhD in communication, the literary arts,
narrative-related arts, or journalism or related fields by the
appointment start date (or shortly thereafter). Candidates must
demonstrate an active and excellent writing practice and research
program that involves the role of narrative in communication; an
emerging reputation in narrative with demonstrated ability to attract
external research funding; and a good publication record in top-ranked
and field relevant journals. Evidence of excellence in teaching
(including a teaching dossier outlining experience and accomplishments,
a statement of teaching philosophy, sample syllabi, and teaching
evaluations, as well as strong letters of reference) is also required.
The successful candidate will have a graduate appointment in one of the
University of Toronto's tri-campus graduate departments.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
ICCIT focuses on teaching and research excellence in its three
undergraduate programs: Communication, Culture, Information and
Technology, Digital Enterprise Management and Professional Writing and
Communication. ICCIT is building a research complement in critical
communication, interactive and immersive digital media and culture, the
theory and practice of communication; and new media design. The
successful applicant will join a vibrant intellectual community of
world-class scholars at Canada’s leading university. For information,
