The Department of Journalism Studies is one of the major journalism research and teaching establishments in Europe. Our staff are drawn from both journalism and academia and we have an excellent network of national and international contacts, in journalism, civil society organisations and in the academic world. We have a thriving international community of postgraduate research students, taught postgraduates and undergraduates. Our alumni are working in newsrooms in the UK and abroad as reporters, editors, producers, presenters while others have gone on into the media and communications sector more broadly as well as into academic careers.
We seek applications from ambitious, highly motivated and talented individuals who will be keen to play an active role in maintaining and enhancing the department’s national and international reputation for research and teaching excellence. The appointee will make a key contribution to advancing the competitive position of the Department. They will also contribute to our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
We are committed to a teaching and research programme that takes an increasingly interdisciplinary approach to the fields of journalism, politics, communication and digital media and we are seeking applicants who will further enhance the next phase of its research and impact profile in these areas. You will hold a PhD in a relevant subject area, have an established research profile evidenced through publications in high quality international peer reviewed journals. We would particularly welcome applicants that will be able to contribute to our MA courses in Global Journalism and International Public and Political Communication in the areas of (new) media and digital cultures, online communities and practices and digital media and communication and information practices used both by journalists and user communities.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
