3 Year Lecturer-Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Storytelling at the University of Denver

The Department of Media, Film, and Journalism Studies in the Division of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at the University of Denver invites applications for a three year lecturer-postdoctoral fellow beginning Fall 2013.  Eligible candidates will have received a Ph.D. no earlier than June 2012, and have an expertise in teaching and scholarship in the areas of digital storytelling and digital journalism. We are particularly interested in candidates with knowledge of how these emergent practices are being taken up among diasporic communities.

The successful candidate/applicant will teach six courses over three quarters each year, including five courses in the common university-wide curriculum, one of which is a First-Year Seminar.  First-Year Seminars are small (15 students), four-credit, academically rigorous courses that begin one week before the start of the regular fall term and that provide students with year-long mentoring and academic advising. The candidate will also teach four courses in the common curriculum.  These will be undergraduate seminars that may be related to the candidate’s research interests and that are framed to meet university and departmental learning outcomes. The candidate will teach one course that fulfills department-specific needs. Holders of lecturer-postdoctoral fellow positions will have opportunities to participate in career development workshops and our division-wide faculty-mentoring program.

We will begin considering applications after February 15, 2013.  For information about the Department of Media, Film, and Journalism Studies, please see http://www.du.edu/ahss/schools/mfjs/.  Please complete the online application at https://www.dujobs.org/, and attach a c.v., the contact information for three references, and a letter of application that suggests courses to be taught or introduced.  Additional materials can be sent to: Lecturer-Postdoctoral Search Committee, Department of Media, Film, and Journalism Studies, University of Denver, 2490 S. Gaylord St., Denver, CO  80208.  The University of Denver is committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty and staff and encourages applications from women, minorities, members of the LBGT community, people with disabilities and veterans.
