Looking for a job?

Thanks to Thom Gillespie who sent me an email suggesting I should just make the blogger page my homepage as opposed to the very graphically challenged homepage I had set up before at www.theaudioprof.com

Great idea, and after figuring out how to forward that URL to the blogger page (since the former is easier to remember, arguably)--here I am.

Oh, and if there are any academics reading this who are looking for positions--we have THREE great ones:

The first is for senior scholars:

Indiana University Department of Telecommunications has an opening for an advanced associate or full professor whose scholarly work is in the area of effects, mass media law and policy, or design and production. It would be a bonus if this scholar’s research or creative activity focuses on or is relevant to the study of health communication, games, network analysis, or writing for the media. The ideal candidate would be one whose research or creative activity contributes in some way to increasing already existing synergies between the cognitive and social level of effects research, between traditional and new media, and between the science and the aesthetics of media production.

We offer a B.A. in Telecommunications as well as M.A., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Undergraduates can also pursue certificates in New Media and Interactive Storytelling and in Game Studies. There are established M.A. and M.S. programs in Immersive Mediated Environments (MIME). Joint M.S. / M.B.A. and M.S. / J.D. degrees are offered in conjunction with the Schools of Business and Law. Our Institute for Communication Research offers support for faculty research including assistance with stimulus design/creation and data collection using an array of methodologies (psychophysiology, focus groups, personal interviews, and computer-assisted survey/experiment administration). We also have digital audio, video and multimedia production technologies. Salaries, fringe benefits and research and teaching opportunities are consistent with peer Research I institutions.

Current research faculty include experts in media psychology and sociology, media economics, political communication, organizational communication, digital games, and media law, policy and technology. Creative faculty emphasize digital and analog media production and digital gaming and interactive storytelling. While we especially seek people in law and policy, management, media psychology, traditional and interactive storytelling, game design, and international communications, our overall objective is to attract the best applicants in the field, regardless of interests, who either enhance current strengths or extend our reach. More about the positions, the department, and our faculty and programs can be found at http://www.indiana.edu/~telecom/. and http://www.indiana.edu/~icr/index.htm.

Applicants should submit (1) a cover letter summarizing their qualifications for the position and explaining how they will add to, supplement or complement existing department strengths, (2) a current vita, (3) selected research publications and/or a portfolio documenting recent creative work (as applicable), and (4) evidence of effective teaching. Three letters of recommendation should be submitted directly by recommenders.

Direct questions and applications to Professor Walter Gantz, Chair, Department of Telecommunications, Radio-TV Center, 1229 E. 7th Street, Bloomington, IN 47405-5501. Professor Gantz can be reached by phone at (812) 855-1621, fax at (812) 855-7955 or via e-mail at gantz@indiana.edu.

Start date is August 15, 2006. Review of applications will begin December 2, 2005, and will continue until the position is filled.

Indiana University is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer. We strongly encourage applications from women and minority candidates as well as from two-career couples.

Then we have two others for those just starting out in this world of University teaching:

Two Faculty Positions

Department of Telecommunications

Indiana University, Bloomington

Indiana University’s Department of Telecommunications seeks two new tenure-track Assistant Professors. Applicants should hold the Ph.D., M.F.A, L.L.M. or other appropriate terminal degree and present a promising program of either (1) scholarly research using social scientific, legal, or historical methods related to electronic media / communications or (2) creative activity in interactive new media. Promising candidates must also be able to teach effectively in one or more of the department’s undergraduate areas of concentration: Media and Society, Design and Production or Industry and Management. Graduate teaching is also possible.

We offer a B.A. in Telecommunications as well as M.A., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Undergraduates can also pursue certificates in New Media and Interactive Storytelling and in Game Studies.

Hmmm. Interesting idea. No other Web page. Hmmm. Worth a thought. Please post your feelings after a month of a new plan.

I can testify that the faculty offices both have climate control and don't leak at IU, so it is propbably worth it for you to apply there.

They do not, however, teach you how to spell.
