This is an academic (9 month) appointment. The successful candidate will have an outstanding research record in science communication, ideally using as contexts of inquiry one or more of CALS key strategic areas (health, food, bioenergy, climate change, community development, ecosystems). The candidate will teach cutting-edge courses in science communication in one of the college’s fastest-growing undergraduate majors. The candidate will also advise Masters and Ph.D. students and teach graduate level courses in their area of expertise in LSC’s M.S. programs and in our Ph.D. program (jointly administered with UW’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication), one of the most highly-ranked graduate programs in communication internationally. Ability to work in interdisciplinary settings and willingness to work with units across CALS will make this new colleague a perfect addition to CALS faculty. The position carries a commitment to the three functions of resident instruction, research, and outreach/service, as well as professional and university service as appropriate to the position and rank.
