The Broadcast & Digital Journalism Department at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications is seeking an experienced multimedia journalist to join our team on a two-year contract as an Assistant Teaching Professor. Continued employment beyond the initial two-year-appointment is possible.
We are looking for a journalist who has a successful track record of reporting and/or producing news on multiple platforms including television, online and through social media. Specifically, the ideal candidate will be equally at home reporting and/or producing news for traditional broadcast distribution as well as distribution through online and social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Anyone who may lack traditional broadcast experience but has led a digital team at a radio or television station is also encouraged to apply.
Previous teaching experience is a plus, but not required. A master’s degree is preferred; a bachelor’s degree is required. It is important candidates have solid, up-to-date skills and enthusiasm for training tomorrow’s journalists and will share our department’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in journalism education.
The Broadcast and Digital Journalism Department (BDJ) at the Newhouse School is regarded as one of the top training grounds for broadcast and digital journalists. Newhouse BDJ alumni are employed at all levels of journalism organizations around the world. BDJ alumni help provide students with an employment pipeline into the professional world.
The department has a close working relationship with a number of news organizations. For example, Nexstar Broadcasting Group is a partner with our Graduate Capstone experience in Washington, DC. BDJ students produce stories in our nation’s capital tailored for individual Nexstar stations around the country. Also, we partner with The E.W. Scripps Company on its innovative Scripps Journalism Career Program.
BDJ also partners with the New York State Associated Press Association to sponsor a biennial “State of the Field” full day workshop for media professionals and students. Newhouse BDJ students have done very well in national competitions over the years.
