Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Migration & Communication

Simon Fraser University

The School of Communication at Simon Fraser University invites applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the area of Migration in relation to theories and methodologies in the field of communication. Specific areas may include, but are not limited to: Trans- and intranational displacement and migration; diasporic communities; refugees and asylum seekers; colonialism, Indigeneity and resistance; migrant labour and virtual migration; populist anti-immigrant discourses; social movements; surveillance and data; borderlands; ICT4D and mobile technologies; global networks. We welcome approaches that include but are not limited to intersectional feminist and queer studies, critical race, political economy, cultural and media studies, policy studies, Indigenous studies, and activism. We are searching for candidates who address these or other issues using qualitative, quantitative, computational, digital methods or a combination of approaches.

Situated in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology, the School of Communication is a national and global leader in the discipline. The School is a dynamic site of research and teaching with a strategic focus on digital media and communication. Our critical tradition to the study of communication includes approaches such as media and culture, technology studies, global communication, culture industries 
and policy, history of communication, and applied media production, among others. The successful candidate will build on the School’s history of critical engagement while developing new directions in research and teaching to reflect contemporary and emergent issues of digital media and communication. We seek an innovative colleague who will challenge traditional distinctions between critical analysis and applied approaches.

Candidates are expected to have a completed Ph.D.(or Ph.D. near completion) in Communication or a cognate discipline with a record of teaching experience and excellence, a clear potential to contribute to the School’s research culture, and an emerging publication record appropriate to the position. The successful candidate will be expected to teach and supervise students at all undergraduate and graduate levels and to work with partners inside and outside the University.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. However, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. Simon Fraser University is committed to employment equity and welcomes applications from all qualified women and men, including visible minorities, persons of aboriginal heritage, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ-identified persons.

Candidates should submit a single pdf including a cover letter (with indication of citizenship and/or residency status), a curriculum vitae, and a teaching dossier (including examples of applied pedagogy), and as ample of published work, or work prepared for publication, if applicable. In addition, please provide the names of three references and their email contact information. Please send applications directly to Brenda Baldwin, Director's Assistant, at bebaldwi at sfu.ca <mailto:bebaldwi at sfu.ca>, addressed to:

Dr. Peter Chow-White, Director 
School of Communication 
Simon Fraser University 
8888 University Drive 
Burnaby, BC V5A1S6
