The United Arab Emirates University invites applications for a faculty position. Qualified candidates at all levels will be considered at a rank commensurate with academic accomplishments. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching excellence and student advising at the undergraduate and graduate levels, a demonstrable research capability that will enable the candidate to develop and sustain an internally and/or externally funded research program in his/her area of expertise, publish his/her research findings in refereed journals, and actively engage in promoting the growth of the UAE University. The application package should include a cover letter, a detailed resume, a brief description of current/future research activities, teaching philosophy, and courses taught. English is the language of instruction and communication. Screening of applications will continue until the position is filled. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the United Arab Emirates University is seeking an accomplished scholar-educator of mass communication, with a specialty in Television/Radio and new media. The successful candidate will also teach undergraduate courses in media convergence and production for multiple platforms -- with an international focus. As the mission of the program is to produce graduates with the capacity for entry level competence into the related professions, the department provides internship experiences intended to expose students to the practical requirements of careers especially in Television/Radio and new media. Faculty members are expected to participate actively in organizing practical experiences both on and off campus as our students are producing regular campus TV and Radio news. The university’s expectations for faculty include effective teaching, productive scholarship, and appropriate forms of service. The initial appointment will be for a four-year period with the first two years probationary. Faculty members are expected to teach at all levels in the program, to share in general education teaching, and to participate, as appropriate, in developing graduate programs. The standard teaching load is 18-24 hours per academic year, modified in varying degrees by course remissions arising from funded research and administrative roles. All faculty members are expected to have an ongoing research agenda and to be engaged in research yielding publications in internationally recognized venues.
