We are seeking a full professor to expand our research and teaching programmes in Communication Science; the core focus of this position will be on Positive Communication Science. Our current society faces complex and unprecedented challenges in areas such as health care, sustainability, politics, and news and information. New insights into the production, content, and reception of mediated communication can provide a positive contribution to addressing these challenges. For example, media interventions can make people adopt healthy and sustainable behaviours, support them in handling the abundance of news and other information that is presented to them, and stimulate their moral and emotional development. In line with Radboud University’s mission statement (‘A Significant Impact’), the Communication and Media group aims to be a key player in this area, addressing the question of how to effectively employ mediated communication to improve people’s lives. The new chair holder should have leadership and vision in research and teaching in this area, further shaping communication science research at Radboud University and the contents of the BSc and MSc programmes.
