Lecturer in Journalism, Politics and Communication

University of Sheffield - Department of Journalism Studies

Salary: Grade 8, £39,324 to £46,924 per annum (pro-rata), with potential to progress to £52,793


The Department of Journalism Studies is one of the major journalism research and teaching establishments in the UK. We are committed to a teaching and research programme that takes an increasingly interdisciplinary approach to the fields of journalism, politics, communication and digital media.

The department now wishes to expand its existing expertise in journalism, politics, communication and digital media to deepen exploration of these areas as they relate to journalism. We seek a new member of staff, at Lecturer level, with a research track record of the highest standard to develop the interface between the study of journalism, and these areas. The post will complement our existing industry accredited public administration provision and the specialised political and public communication research and teaching which already exists in the department.

We are seeking excellence in both teaching and research. You will make a major contribution to developing the research culture within the department through the newly formed Communication, Media and Journalism research group (CMJ), and play a central role in the Department’s Research Strategy through delivery of high quality research publications and the development of research funding bids. You will play a key role in maintaining the department’s high standard of teaching through devising, designing, preparing, and delivering innovative teaching programmes that draw on the areas of journalism, politics, communication and digital media. You will be expected to demonstrate an interest in and engage with vocational elements of our provision in innovative ways that draw on your research strengths. You will work collaboratively with other staff inside and outside the department and be able to demonstrate an innovative approach to understanding, researching and teaching the ways that journalism intersects with politics, communication and digital media. You will have or be working towards a PhD in a relevant discipline (or have equivalent qualifications / experience).

This is an open ended full time post.
