Assistant Professor with Tenure Track for Communication Science with focus on Strategic Communication and Media Management

At the University of Zurich, an assistant professorship with tenure track for communication science with a focus on strategic communication and media management is to be filled as soon as possible. 

After two periods of employment of three years each, in the case of a positive evaluation in the context of a tenure procedure, promotion to a temporary professorship takes place.

Applicants should be distinguished by excellent research on strategic communication and / or media management. Strategic communication means controlled communication to internal and external reference and target groups of an organization. What is desired is a focus on the communicator and content pages (that is to say strategies of advertising, public relations, marketing and campaign communication in the digital environment), if appropriate with reference to the effect. Media management uses accurate knowledge of media markets and media consumers to make strategic decisions about how media products and other communications offerings can be designed and marketed to serve the needs of their audiences and the organization's goals.

It is also explicitly desired to receive applications from people whose previous focus was only on one of the two mentioned fields. Expertise in Strategic Communication is an advantage. In the medium term, the professorship should cover both tender fields. Therefore, the applicants are invited to submit a development plan that is at least two-sided, in which they outline how they would like to structure the two fields in research and teaching.

All applicants should be familiar with the subject of communication science and media research; Participation in introductory Bachelor and Master courses as well as methodology is expected. Special emphasis is placed on relevant methodological competences in the course of a socio-scientific, empirical-analytical profiling of the subject at the University of Zurich. 

It requires a doctorate completed at the time of application and other excellent scientific achievements in the relevant field. The University of Zurich aims to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and therefore explicitly asks qualified female researchers for their application.

Applications must be submitted online by 2 October 2019.
