The College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University invites applicants for a multi-position thematic hire with a focus on race, ethnicity, gender, and/or social inequality.  We seek scholars whose research, teaching, outreach and/or service seek to address systemic inequities and who will advance the College’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The goal of the thematic hire is to grow our collaborative network of scholars focused on communication and disparities across a broad range of subdisciplines, bringing together new hires and existing faculty experts. Successful candidates will be part of a community of scholars and practitioners working to enhance social justice through research in the fields of advertising, public relations, communication, journalism studies, information science, game studies, and communicative sciences and disorders. The hiring initiative will bring in five new faculty over two years.  

Qualified applicants should:

  • have a Ph.D. in Advertising and/or Public Relations or a related field.
  • demonstrate solid expertise and an active research program in one or more well-defined epistemological approach to studying advertising and/or public relations, including, but not limited to, empiricism/positivism, pragmatism, realism, and interpretivism.
  • demonstrate ability to teach core and elective courses in our undergraduate majors (B.S. in Advertising Management, B.A. in Advertising Creative, and B.A. in Public Relations) and graduate programs (MA in Advertising and Public Relations; Information and Media Ph.D. Program).
  • show evidence of or potential for acquiring external grant funding.
  • have a commitment to mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. 

Desired Qualifications

  • We are particularly interested in scholars who bring diversity of thought, perspectives, and approaches to understanding the role of advertising and public relations in furthering social justice and DEI using one or more epistemological approach.
  • Of special interest is research on DEI issues in relation to digital advertising and/or public relations, including, but not limited to, social media advertising, digital analytics, and artificial intelligence.
  • We also welcome applicants who investigate the impact of sociocultural, historical, and political influences as they relate to stereotypic portrayals of historically minoritized and marginalized groups at the psychological, social, and cultural levels.
  • The optimal candidate should be able to teach courses at the intersection of advertising and public relations as they relate to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. 
  • National/international reputation or potential and industry experience in advertising, public relations, or a related field are also valued.
