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.
