Job Description Summary:
The Department of Communication, Cabrini University, invites applications for a full time faculty position to teach courses in digital media with an emphasis on video. Using a project-oriented approach, this visual communication candidate will help students navigate the evolving platforms of journalism and video storytelling, including immersive technologies (such as 360/virtual reality). All department faculty also contribute to the university's core curriculum.
The successful candidate should be someone eager to engage in continuous curriculum innovation to enhance instruction in media convergence. This position is within a department that responds quickly to new trends and is a leader among small colleges in curriculum development.

Another distinctive feature of the department is a commitment to producing communication for the common good.

The department faculty have received national recognition for student media projects that support the common good. See student work for examples: (www.cabrini.edu/convergence). We desire a new faculty member who demonstrates similar interests in his/her work.
In addition to teaching, the successful candidate will be expected to advise students, work cross-functionally with existing faculty to grow students' multimedia skills, maintain a vigorous professional development agenda, and nurture contacts with professional media in America's 4th largest media market. The position requires teaching 12 semester credits (normally 4 courses) per semester or the equivalent. Expectations for all Cabrini University faculty include teaching excellence, scholarship and professional activities, curriculum development, student advising, and departmental and university-wide service.
