The Media Studies Program in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Media Studies at the American University of Beirut invites applications at the assistant professor level to begin August 15, 2017.

Media Studies is a newly established and growing program that currently offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees, and is seeking a scholar trained in critical, humanistic or social scientific approaches broadly conceived. We are seeking candidates with research and teaching interests in any number of areas of expertise, including, but not limited to, digital media, media and development, political economy and media industries, or those who expand our current offerings.

While a research agenda based in the Middle East is desirable, we also encourage applications by candidates who can demonstrate the relevance of their current or future work to the region.

Applicants must have completed their PhD by August 2017. The appointment is for an initial period of four years with opportunities for renewal and advancement. The usual teaching load is not more than 5 courses a year. The language of instruction is English.

Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vita, a writing sample, and a list of three references. Application materials should be sent directly to:
