University of Southern California (Public Diplomacy)

[Department Website][APSA elisting(requires membership)] The University of Southern California Center on Public Diplomacy, a new cross-disciplinary research, teaching and training center run jointly by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and the USC School of International Relations, a school within the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences, seeks to appoint a faculty position in public diplomacy at open rank. The person appointed to this position will play a leadership role in the establishment of the center and hold a joint appointment in the USC Annenberg School and the School of International Relations. We look for a candidate who is prepared to teach and conduct advanced research on cultural, educational, media and social action activities and programs—both governmental and non-governmental, both U.S. and non-U.S., both national and multinational—and their impact on international relations, public opinion and foreign policy. These activities are broadly construed to include diplomacy, journalism, entertainment, commerce, tourism and civil society movements whose effects—intended or not, official or unofficial—are to foster the interests of states and the values of societies and groups within them. A PhD is required. Experience as a practitioner of public diplomacy, whether governmental or non-governmental, will be considered an asset, as will a record of scholarship designed to have an impact on society, and to be of service to it. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. USC is an AA/EO employer and is seeking to create a diverse community.
