Visiting prof opening at UBC journalism school in Vancouver

We run a visiting professor scheme at the UBC Graduate School of Journalism and the deadline for applications is fast approaching.

The aim of the scheme is to bring in professional journalists who are interested in coming to Vancouver to work with the students and teach a course in their area of specialty.

From the school website:

The incumbent is expected to reside in Vancouver for the 3 1/2-month period and be actively involved in the day-to-day life of the School. The Visiting Professor designs and delivers a three-credit graduate course in his/her interest area, helps supervise thesis projects and delivers one public lecture on campus and one outside the University. Preference will be given to the candidate who has some journalistic teaching or training experience.

The deadline for applications is February 15, so if this is of interest, then e-mail the school director Mary Lynn Young at, with an up-to-date CV as well as a brief abstract on the course proposed.

Present and past professors include Rob Cribb, an investigative journalist at the Toronto Star, Peter Klein, 60 minutes producer and now on faculty at the school, and Margaret Munro, a science journalist with Canwest newspapers.

It is a great opportunity to come and work at a vibrant school with an innovative integrated journalism program and talented students.
