You: Smart, strong communicator, attuned to one or more innovative areas in strategic communication for building brands, seeking to work in a diverse, energy-filled environment to teach bright, motivated students. Us: One of the top communications schools and college towns in the country where collaborative faculty are at the top of their game in and out of their classrooms; where students seek competence, confidence, and connections; and where our Ad Lab team just won the AAF National Student Advertising Competition. Applications are invited for an assistant professor position within the areas of creative and persuasive communications to teach in our Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) program in Ithaca, NY, one of only a very few undergraduate degree programs that bridge the gap between communications and business by intentionally integrating the creative skills associated with advertising and public relations with the data-driven, bottom-line understandings of a business degree. We seek a committed teacher with demonstrated knowledge of the relationships among advertising art direction, copywriting, graphic design, and other creative marketing communications. The individual filling this position will contribute to our unique interdisciplinary approach and will teach courses at all levels of a strategic communication program, particularly those dealing with creative advertising and courses in their area of expertise. Opportunities exist to work with our American Advertising Federation (AAF) student chapter and to teach courses at the graduate level, including our Executive Masters in Communications Innovation. The successful applicant will collaborate in creating a lively, engaging environment and will take part in shaping an evolving curriculum in one of the strongest undergraduate communication programs in the country. All faculty are responsible for creating a first-rate environment for student learning in and out of classes and supporting, empowering and retaining students from underrepresented groups; student academic advising; engaging in recognized scholarly, creative, and/or professional work that, where possible, crosses and integrates the various disciplines in our curricula; and serving the department, school, college, and professional community, including committee work. Qualifications: M.F.A. or Ph.D. and professional experience in an advertising-related field desired. ABD will be considered. Candidates who possess a Masters or Bachelors degree and significant professional experience in an advertising-related field will also be considered. Candidates who have a demonstrated commitment of embracing diversity as an integral part of the educational experience are preferred. An ideal candidate should also demonstrate evidence of teaching effectiveness appropriate for our students as well as experience using graphic design software to create visual images. This is a non-tenure eligible Professor of Practice position with the expectation for consistent peer-reviewed creative and professional accomplishments. The Department of Strategic Communication: The Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College is committed to providing students a liberal arts education within a professional program. Diversity is a core value and we believe that the educational environment is enhanced when diverse groups of people with diverse ideas come together to learn. The Department of Strategic Communication offers two undergraduate degrees: Communication Management and Design (CMD) and Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC). CMD is a unique interdisciplinary bachelor of science program, which integrates corporate communication and communication design. IMC (a joint program with the School of Business) is an innovative bachelor of science program which teaches students about the fields of advertising, public relations, and marketing.
