Job Title – Assistant Professor of Instruction in Broadcast Journalism
Job Description: The E.W. Scripps School of Journalism is seeking an assistant professor of instruction in broadcast journalism. The successful candidate will have extensive professional experience that enables him or her to teach undergraduate and graduate courses reflecting the modern demands of a news industry that has an increasingly digital, mobile, and streaming focus.

This candidate will help lead a distinguished broadcast journalism program, which boasts alumni at some of the top news, sports and online channels in the world. These include ESPN, NBC, CBS, Insider, and Vice News. The candidate will teach core broadcast classes, such as Radio and Television Reporting and Writing, Fundamentals of Online Journalism, and Advanced Multimedia Practicum.

He or she will also be a vital component in producing and supervising students as part of our Athens Newswatch cluster. Students take four journalism broadcast classes so they can devote four hours, four days a week to writing, reporting, directing and anchoring a live newscast that will be streamed to the school’s Twitch, YouTube and Facebook channels. 

This position is not tenure track and candidates will not be expected to produce scholarly research and/or professional creative activity. However, the candidate will have flexibility in his/her schedule of three classes a semester to attend conferences, collaborate with and cultivate industry connections, or innovate in broadcast education. 

The school offers state-of-the-art teaching facilities, including broadcast and streaming spaces and dedicated podcasting studios. The Scripps J School also offers competitive salaries and benefits, and a collegial, teamwork-oriented work environment. The school also fosters international collaborations and travel experiences.

Our undergraduate students are academically oriented, many of them coming from honors programs in high school. They are highly involved in nearly a dozen student publications including broadcast sports and news shows on WOUB Public Media, the school’s PBS and NPR affiliate station. 

Our graduate program, which includes master’s and Ph.D. students, provides additional teaching, mentoring, and research opportunities. 

A bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications or a related field, along with significant professional experience (at least two years) in broadcast journalism is required. A master’s degree and at least five years of industry experience is preferred but not required.

We seek a candidate with a commitment to working effectively with students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds.

Ohio University is committed to creating a respectful and inclusive educational and workplace environment.  Ohio University is an equal access/equal opportunity and affirmative action employer with a strong commitment to building and maintaining a diverse workforce.  Women, persons of color, persons with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
