Tenured or Tenure-Track Professor of Communication in the Area of Media Effects

The University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member (open rank) to begin fall semester 2020. Applicants’ research and teaching should employ quantitative methods in the study of communication and social influence in the public information environment. Though we will consider strong candidates in all areas of social influence (including political and persuasive/strategic communication), we are particularly interested in health communication candidates. Research expertise in conventional and cutting edge methods are valued; these may include observational, experimental, neuroscientific, or computational approaches. Applicants should also have a track record of (or clear potential for) obtaining external research funds, including federal grants.


Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Communication or a related field by the start of the appointment. Candidates who add to our School and University diversity are strongly encouraged to apply.


The Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania is a graduate school of communication theory and research, with 20 full-time faculty and approximately 80 doctoral students representing a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds and interests. The faculty also has primary responsibility for an undergraduate communication major within the School of Arts and Sciences.


Submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, three names of references, and three articles, chapters or other research to Professor John L. Jackson, Jr., Dean, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania via http://apply.interfolio.com/65061. For full consideration, applications must be postmarked no later than Monday, September 30, 2019.
