The Department of Communication at the University of Massachusetts Amherst 
invites applications for the position of Department Chair, with term of 
appointment to commence in Fall 2007. The appointment will be at the rank of 
full Professor, with tenure, and applicants should have scholarly 
credentials appropriate to that rank at a major research institution. The 
search is open with respect to subfield specialization and methodological 
orientation. We seek to hire a distinguished scholar with an outstanding 
record of research and publication who will be appointed to the permanent 
faculty and serve as Chair for an initial term of three years. The Chair is 
responsible for administering fiscal, personnel, and curricular matters, 
advocating departmental interests, and encouraging scholarly productivity. 
Applicants should have a record of active and continuing research, proven 
excellence in teaching and advising graduate and undergraduate students, the 
ability to work effectively with faculty and university administrators, 
strong communication and interpersonal skills, and demonstrated leadership 
or administrative experience. We are a theoretically and methodologically 
diverse department that offers B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in 
Communication and a B.A. degree in Journalism. The successful candidate will 
be a scholar who values creativity, rigorous inquiry, collegiality, and 
diversity, and who will contribute to the department's research profile 
beyond his or her term as Chair. Salary will be competitive and commensurate 
with credentials and experience.
The review of applications will begin on October 2, 2006 and continue until 
the position is filled. To apply, please submit a letter of application, a 
current c.v., sample publications, and the names of three references with 
contact information to: Chair Search, Department of Communication, Machmer 
Hall, University of Massachusetts Amherst, 240 Hicks Way, Amherst MA 01003.
Questions can be addressed to Prof. Erica Scharrer, search committee chair,
