The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) is hiring an Assistant Director of Debate and Lecturer. The position will begin in August 2022. A Master’s Degree in Communication Studies (or a closely related field) is required, and the position involves university classroom teaching in the Department of Communication Studies and working with the UNLV Debate Team. The UNLV Debate Team is currently in transition from NDT/CEDA debate and is exploring opportunities to compete in other formats. It also is increasingly focused on on-campus debates, civic engagement projects, and other opportunities that more closely align with the mission of UNLV and the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs. The ideal candidate will be an excellent debate coach, an excellent classroom instructor, and a reliable administrator. The position will involve running most of the day-to-day operations of the UNLV Debate Team, and will include mentoring on the administrative side of the job.
