Responsibilities: The successful candidate will be able to teach in the long term across the undergraduate advertising curriculum, as well as graduate seminars in an advertising-related area. The immediate teaching need, in rank order, is for coverage of courses in advertising strategy and social media, advertising campaigns, advertising research, and advertising strategy and digital analytics platforms. The faculty member is expected to have a scholarly research agenda in advertising and/or branded digital communications (broadly defined) and also provide service to the School and professional advertising communities.

Required Qualifications: An earned doctorate in advertising, mass communication, marketing, integrated marketing communication, or a related field is required by the position start date. Candidates should have a demonstrated commitment to excellence in both teaching and research, in line with SDSU’s teacher-scholar model. Evidence or promise of a strong research agenda in advertising and/or branded digital communications (broadly defined) is required.

Desired Qualifications: We seek a “visionary,” a candidate who is able to express his/her own perspective on where the field of advertising is heading and who possesses the desire and skills necessary to revise and create courses that help students understand this vision, thereby contributing to both the growth of the advertising specialization and to students’ post-graduation success.

The ideal candidate should have a track record of teaching college-level advertising courses. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise for and/or experience in teaching undergraduate courses in advertising strategy and social media, advertising campaigns, advertising research, and advertising strategy and digital analytics platforms.

In addition, the new hire should expect to serve on master’s thesis committees.

One of the goals of the School of Journalism and Media Studies Strategic Plan is to maintain our international research reputation in advertising and public relations. The new tenure-track hire should have a strong program of scholarship already in development. Unique scholarly strengths could include 1) research interests relevant to advertising, particularly digital and social media, 2) advertising to ethnic markets, advertising to Spanish-language consumers in the U.S, and advertising in Latin America or Asia; and 3) research that contributes to cross-disciplinary scholarship in advertising and marketing, advertising and business, and/or advertising and media entrepreneurship.

Fluency in both English and another language (e.g., Spanish) would be a plus.
