Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications invites applications for either an Associate or Full Professor position with tenure or an advanced tenure-track Assistant Professor to begin August 22, 2022. Review of applications will begin December 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.

The School is seeking applicants in the areas of media psychology and extended reality (virtual, augmented, and mixed reality). This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of Virtual and Immersive Interactions. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions across departments for this cluster. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the Newhouse School, the College of Visual and Performing Arts, the School of Education, the School of Architecture, and other units across Syracuse University. Further information on the campus-wide hiring initiative can be found at

The successful candidate will demonstrate their ability to bring national visibility to the school through academic scholarship with potential to gain extramural funds. Top candidates will have a well-defined and ambitious research agenda. The ability to secure grant funding is essential. Candidates will also need to indicate ability and aptitude for teaching through prior university teaching experience. They will have a track record of collegial collaboration and be expected to advise doctoral dissertations and master’s theses. A Ph.D. is required.

In addition to completing an online application at, applicants should submit a cover letter of interest which includes three important areas:

1. Research Activity – The Newhouse School values both scholarly research and creative activity. However, we look for colleagues to make substantial collegial contributions in sponsored research, thus the successful applicant must demonstrate a sustained scholarly agenda with potential to gain extramural funds. Please describe how your experience will help you contribute to the University and School’s commitment to research and creative initiatives.

2. Teaching – The Newhouse School prides itself on the high quality of education it provides. We are especially interested in applicants with the ability to contribute to doctoral study. Please describe your teaching interests and philosophy of how students best learn.

3. Diversity and Inclusion – Please describe how your past experience has prepared you to contribute to the School’s and the University’s strategic commitments to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in higher education.

In addition to the cover letter, applications should include :

  • a curriculum vitae, and
  • list of four academic or professional references with contact name, title, address, and email/phone information. The search committee will only contact listed references for applicants who are finalists for the position.
