Successful candidates will join a dynamic team of faculty who direct and support expanding B.A. and M.A. degree programs in Public Relations and Advertising (PRAD). Our M.A. program was recognized  as Outstanding Education Program of the year in 2018 by PRWeek Awards. DePaul’s location in the heart of Chicago, the nation’s third largest media market, provides unparalleled opportunities to forge strong working relationships with key industry professionals and offers students cutting-edge, professional training. Research and teaching support include internal grant opportunities and the college’s own academic advising and instructional design staff. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

Candidates with expertise in media planning, digital and social media, and big data analytics will be given prioritized consideration. Applicants may also offer more specialized expertise in campaign tailoring such as creativity, health communication, sports communication, and ethnic advertising. The College of Communication is currently equipped with a research laboratory including hardware for collecting psychophysiological measures.
