Salary: Commensurate w/ Experience
Work Schedule: Full Time
The S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications has an opening for the Director of the Sports Communications Emphasis (SCE). The director will also hold the faculty rank of Professor of Practice.
The Sports Communications Emphasis (SCE) is currently for Newhouse graduate students and is comprised of required coursework, elective coursework, internships, and a speakers’ series that the students complete in conjunction with their majors in other Master’s programs: Broadcast and Digital Journalism; Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism; and Television-Radio-Film. One of the director’s charges will be to expand the program to other graduate communications majors and/or to the undergraduate level. Other future plans could include establishing a sports communications center at the School, which could involve fundraising and development work. The director must also reach out to and work well with the extensive Newhouse alumni network of sports communicators.
This is a 12-month appointment with academic year and summer teaching and student advising responsibilities. The successful candidate will teach required coursework in contemporary media coverage of sports (broadcast, print and online) and sports communications entrepreneurship.
The successful candidate will also be required to teach some elective courses and hire/mentor adjunct faculty for others. Current SCE electives are in TV sports reporting and anchoring, sports writing for online, play-by-play, and live sports production.
The Newhouse School is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and especially welcomes applicants from underrepresented groups. Syracuse University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
This position requires a seasoned sports communicator who now wants to use his/her experience to further develop and promote sports communications at a nationally-renowned communications school whose alumni are dominant in the sports communications field. The successful candidate will have had a distinguished career and must have solid connections nationally in the sports communications world. The ability to relate to college students and to teach and mentor them is also critical.
