I don’t often post ads in this space, but this one is special:

The Department of Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University invites applications for a tenure track position to begin on August 1, 2008, in the area of Media and Public Policy. Although the appointment is expected to be made at the Assistant Professor level, applications from more advanced candidates are also invited. We are open to all critical approaches, but we are particularly interested in candidates whose work is transnational in scope and addresses one or more of the following areas: cultural policy; political economy; globalization; activism; race, gender, ethnicity, ability and/or minority status. Theoretical approaches are also welcome. Candidates should have a PhD in a related field; evidence of scholarly promise will be a major consideration. In addition to conducting research, the successful candidate will develop courses in her or his area of specialization and supervise MA and PhD students. She/he will also be affiliated with Media@McGill, the university’s new hub for research, scholarship and public outreach on issues in media, technology and culture. Knowledge of French is an asset. Visit and for more information about our programs. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and two writing samples (20-30pp). The search committee will begin reviewing applications on November 15, 2007 and will continue to do so until the position is filled. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. McGill University is committed to equity in employment. Please address applications to: Professor Jonathan Sterne, Chair, Department of Art History and Communication Studies, McGill University, 853 Sherbrooke St. W., Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3A 2T6
