Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Communication

The Communication Department within the College of Arts and Letters at The University of Tampa seeks candidates for a full-time, tenure-track assistant professor in Communication to begin August 15, 2022.

The University of Tampa is a medium-sized, comprehensive, residentially-based private institution of more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The University is ideally situated on a beautiful 110-acre campus next to the Hillsborough River, adjacent to Tampa's dynamic central business district, which is a growing, vibrant, diverse metropolitan area. UT reflects this vibrancy; with 24 consecutive years of enrollment growth UT boasts 260 student organizations, a multicultural student body from 50 states and more than 100 countries, and "Top Tier" ranking in U.S. News & World Report.

Teaching load is 3 courses (12 credit hours) per semester over two 15-week semesters per academic year.

The department seeks a candidate with a Ph.D. (by time of appointment) in Communication or a related field to teach a range of possible undergraduate communication courses. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in intercultural communication, and we encourage applications from scholars who approach the field from a perspective informed by critical studies in race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, or critical engagement with the Global South. We welcome candidates who can strengthen the critical and cultural diversity in our curriculum, including updating existing courses and proposing new ones (as needed).

The successful candidate will demonstrate excellence in undergraduate teaching, maintain an active record of scholarship, participate in academic advising, and engage in service to the department, college, university, and broader community. We welcome innovative pedagogies, and varied research agendas and traditions of scholarship.
