The Department of Communication at George Mason University is seeking a tenure-track Assistant Professor or an early-career tenured Associate Professor to teach and conduct research on issues related to media and public affairs. Our ideal candidate will examine the relationships between the mix of traditional and new media on politics, public policy, public health, the environment, and other issues of relevance to society, and will help advance the research of one or more of the research centers currently supported by the department (see below).
