Are you an outstanding academic with passion and enthusiasm for your research in media and communication? Do you want to be part of a thriving media and communication school in a Russell Group University and contribute to its further development? Are you an experienced academic leader looking for a challenging senior leadership position? 

The School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds is a vibrant and highly ranked department with a commitment to excellence in both research and teaching. We are ranked 2nd for Communication and Media Studies in the Complete University Guide (2018) and 39th in the world (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018). In the 2014 REF exercise we were placed in the top ten departments in the UK with 82% of our research judged to be either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. 

We are looking to appoint a Professor to join us to provide leadership across the range of our activities. The successful candidate will be expected to enhance the School’s research and teaching activities, working with colleagues to develop our international profile and standing. Applications are welcome from candidates whose research extends our strengths in media industries and cultural production, Journalism, political communication, global communication, visual media and communication, and digital cultures. 

The School is keenly interested in diversifying its staff and welcomes applications from candidates belonging to groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in media and communication, including but not limited to ethnic minorities.
