UW-Madison’s Department of Life Sciences Communication (LSC), located in the College of Agricultural & Life Sciences (CALS), seeks applications for TWO tenure track assistant professors in science communication.

POSITION #1:  The candidate will have an outstanding research record and teach cutting-edge courses in science communication in one of the college’s fastest-growing undergraduate majors.

POSITION #2:   The successful candidate will have an outstanding research record and teach cutting-edge courses in science communication with a focus on visual communication. This might include but is not limited to data visualization, data journalism, (visual) information processing, visual literacy, and/or visual aspects of communication campaigns. 

BOTH candidates will also advise Masters and Ph.D. students and teach graduate level courses in their area of expertise in LSC’s M.S. programs and in our Ph.D. program (jointly administered with UW’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication), one of the most highly-ranked graduate programs in communication internationally. Ability to work in interdisciplinary settings and willingness to work with units across CALS will make the new colleagues a perfect addition to CALS faculty.
