The Department of Communication at the University of Utah invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor in Environmental Communication, effective July 1, 2018. The strongest candidates will have a promising research record in Environmental Communication that complements the Department’s current foci in Environmental Communication and contributes to the CommSHER (Science, Health, Environmental, and Risk) area of emphasis more broadly. They will perform scholarship that increases knowledge of communication practices, have expertise in qualitative or rhetorical approaches to research, develop a national and international reputation for scholarship in Environmental Communication, and evince a broad awareness and appreciation of the discipline of Communication across the areas of research represented in the Department. Expertise in qualitative research methods is highly desirable, but other approaches will be considered.
