The Department of Communication and Journalism at the Hebrew
University is seeing candidates for a tenure track position in
the field of Journalism at the Lecturer level (equivalent to
Assistant Professor) for Fall 1994 or 1995. A higher rank will be
considered if appropriate. The position requires minimally a
Ph.D. in journalism, communication, or a related field, and
specialization in at least two of the following areas: history of
journalism, journalism as a profession (including journalism
ethics), and journalism as cultural practice (including social
and/or political aspects). Candidates should have evidence both
of a strong commitment to research and to excellence in teaching.
Candidates who have professional experience in journalism as well
as a strong academic background will be especially welcome.
Command of Hebrew is not essential for the appointment, but is
expected with time.

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is the oldest university in
Israel. The graduate program in communication was founded in
1965; the department has just recently initiated a B.A. program
in journalism and communication. The Smart Family Institute for
Communication, founded in 1986, supports research in
communication in Israel.

Formal evaluation of applications will begin on March 1, 1994,
and will continue until the position is filled. Please submit a
curriculum vitae (with fax and email addresses included, if
available) and three references to: Prof. Shoshana Blum-Kulka,
Department Head, Department of Communication and Journalism,
Hebrew University of Jerusalem, 91905, Israel (Fax 972-2-827069).
