Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in media and communication? Do you have a research strength in the area of race and media/communication? Are you able to use your expertise to support or complement our existing strengths in cultural production and media policy, international communication, journalism studies, political communication, visual media, and digital cultures?

The School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds is a highly ranked department with a vibrant research culture and a commitment to excellence in teaching. 

The School seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Media and Communication specialising in the area of media and race, broadly conceived, to join us from September 2018. We are seeking candidates with research and teaching interests in areas including, but not limited to: racial relations in the media and cultural industries; postcolonialism, migration and/or diaspora; media activism and race in social movements; intersectionality (e.g. the relationship between media representations of race/ethnicity and gender, sexuality, religion, nationality and/or class); indigenous media.

You will have a PhD in media and communication studies or a related field (or have submitted a PhD for examination) and a developing record of research, commensurate with the level of the post, and with a clear indication of the ability to achieve internationally recognised standards of excellence. You will be a committed teacher and outstanding communicator able to contribute to teaching and administrative activities in media and communication.
