We're hiring at the University of Miami

Do you want to teach Web design, code, and data journalism? Perhaps you'd want to join us at the University of Miami's Journalism department. We have a new lecturer position. Here's the description. I'm part of the search committee for this.

The teaching load is heavy, but there's an opportunity to make a big difference down here. We're planning new courses about computing and data in journalism, both at the undergrad and grad levels; those classes could interact with my visualization and infographics courses (in which I don't teach code,) and the person who gets the job will be in charge of developing them or expanding on what we already have. Besides, she/he could be involved not only in our journalism programs, but also in our Interactive Media MFA.

And it's in Miami. I don't need to mention the weather, right?
