Syracuse Univ. Seeking Public Diplomacy Faculty

Syracuse University campus

(Syracuse University)

27 August 2015. The S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured faculty position in its Public Relations Department on the Syracuse, New York campus, to begin in the Fall of 2016. The position will provide leadership in the school’s public diplomacy specialization, where students earn a M.S. in public relations and a M.A. in international relations from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.

The university says candidates must have a master’s degree in communication or a related field, or equivalent professional designation. Professional experience in public diplomacy and/or international public relations/public affairs is highly desired. In addition, candidates should have a record of thought leadership demonstrated through professional work, engagement in international affairs/public relations, high profile speaking engagements, published news articles and opinion pieces, an active scholarly agenda, or through applied creative productions.

According to the university, candidates must be able to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in public relations, particularly with a global and multicultural perspective incorporating digital strategies and tactics. Teaching responsibilities may also include public relations campaigns, public relations writing courses with an emphasis in digital communication, public diplomacy, ethics, and public relations management, and courses that complement the individual’s expertise or specialization.

In 2006, the university created a dual master’s degree in public diplomacy (degrees in both PR and International Relations). In 2015, the school launched an online master’s program with three tracks in advertising, public relations and journalism innovation.
