                         Loyola University of Chicago
       The Department of Communication seeks four (4) colleagues to
       join us in Fall, 1992 on tenure-track appointments in an exciting
       urban university.  Loyola University is a Jesuit institution
       comprised of people of many faiths and creeds.  The Department of
       Communication is both popular and innovative in the complementary
       endeavors of teaching and research.
            Position #1: Cultural Studies: Develop/teach courses in
            critical analysis of media, communication institutions, and
            practices, including but not limited to journalism,
            advertising, public relations or government.  The person may
            come from any of several approaches to this field, including
            the Birmingham School, the Cultivation Project, or others.
            Position #2: Ethnography of Communication: Develop/teach
            courses in cultural communication patterns, speech
            communities, intercultural or interracial communication.  We
            welcome applications from people applying ethnographic
            perspectives to mass mediated and/or oral communication.
            Position #3: Discourse Analysis: Develop/teach courses in
            the analysis of discourse.  The successful applicant may
            come from any of the traditions which foreground discourse
            as a way of dealing with important social issues, such as
            authority, conflict or community.
            Position #4: Media Studies: Develop/teach courses in media
            theory and criticism; supervise/teach courses in TV studio
            production.  We particularly invite applications from people
            whose work focuses on the electronic media in the context of
            oral and print media, and who see media as a formative force
            in social processes.
       All positions are at the beginning or advanced assistant
       professor level.  Qualifications include the Ph.D. or equivalent;
       evidence of exceptional promise or outstanding ability as
       teachers; and scholarly research and professional activity.
       Send 1) a letter of application; 2) a curriculum vita; 3) at
       least three letters of recommendation; and 4) supporting
       materials for evidence of teaching ability and research to:
