  • Editor - Potter Leader-Enterprise
    Potter Leader-Times/Tioga Publishing Company
    Coudersport

    The Potter Leader-Enterprise, an award-winning weekly newspaper, is looking for a creative, dynamic and professional editor.

    If you’re a true Jack(or Jill)-of-all-trades, this job might be for you. As a member of the Tioga Publishing Co. team, you’ll be reporting, writing, editing, and photographing the life of the area served by the newspaper, designing pages and developing our online presence. Getting the most out of the position means you’ll get to try new things, meet interesting people and learn something every day. It’s anything but boring, and we’re looking for an enthusiastic candidate to go at it head-on.

    The position is perfect for those wanting more out of a newspaper job, or for new college graduates looking to make their mark. The ideal candidate would rather be out hunting down stories than sitting in an office (though you will get your own work space), and would rather communicate face-to-face than by email. We’re situated in a small mountain town where the outdoors is life, and your sources become your friends. The newspaper plays an important part in the community, and we’re looking for someone to help make it even better.

    How to get hired here:

    Step 1 - WOW us with your amazing and down to earth personality. No phonies or arrogance allowed here.

    Step 2 - Be an awesome writer. Prove this to us with samples. We might even send you out on an assignment.

    Step 3 - Know AP style like the back of your hand. Know how to edit others’ writing to fit it, and know how to integrate AP with your own unique writing style.

    Step 4 - Be a geek and love computers. When we’re not out having fun with stories, we work with Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, so knowing those will score you major points.

    Step 5 - Show us your passion. Everyone wants a job, sure. But this newspaper is more than a job - it’s a way of life. Show us you’re committed to becoming a part of it and of the community.

    Step 6 - Have a good balance of professionalism and informality. We’re not the New York Times, but we’re not a half-baked gossip rag, either.

    Requirements:

    College degree in Communications, Journalism, related field, or equivalent work experience.

    Proven writing and photography skills.

    Familiarity with Adobe InDesign and Photoshop.

    Ability to meet several weekly deadlines with great time management skills.

    Strong knowledge of AP style and editing skills.

    Desire to learn about the area and its people, and to become a part of the community.

    Ability to work in a creative team, but also independently.

    Having a sense of humor is mandatory. 

    Submit cover letter, resume and writing/photography samples to nkennedy@tiogapublishing.com.

  • Don Davis Professorship in Ethics - Penn State University
    Penn State University
    State College

    Penn State’s College of Communications is seeking candidates with a track record of leadership on issues of ethics, integrity and social responsibility in the media and public communication for the Don Davis Professorship in Ethics starting in August 2017. The holder of this prestigious position will be expected to administer an ethics-across-the-curriculum program in the College; represent the College in ethics-related initiatives and programs at the University; and provide leadership on ethical issues for the professions and the public.

    Preferred candidates will have the experience needed to teach in one of the College’s curricular departments: Advertising and Public Relations, Journalism, Media Studies/Film Video, and Telecommunications. In addition, candidates should have the capacity and commitment to collaborate in multi-disciplinary research and grant opportunities across the University. A terminal degree is preferred, but not required. Rank will be determined based on qualifications of the ideal candidate.

    The Don Davis Professorship in Ethics was founded in 2005 through the generous support of Don Davis Jr., a 1942 graduate of Penn State and the retired chairman and CEO of Stanley Works. The College of Communications has a long history of emphasizing the importance of ethics and social responsibility through both its curriculum and practice. It has two endowed lecture series on the topic: the Donald W. Davis Symposium in Advertising Ethics and the N. N. Oweida Lecture in Journalism Ethics. In 2004, the College also launched the Arthur W. Page Center for Integrity in Public Communication, whose research and programming centerpiece is ethics and responsibility. A course in media ethics is required of all journalism majors. In addition, questions of ethics, fairness, responsibility, credibility and good citizenship are woven into the fabric of the majority of courses throughout the entire College curriculum. More broadly, Penn State is home to the Rock Ethics Institute and a world leader in multiple disciplines now at the center of urgent public communications and policy discussions—energy, environment, water, agricultural biotechnology, engineering, medicine, sustainability, climatology, corporate social responsibility, and ICT4D, among many others.

    Applicants should include a cover letter, CV, and three or more references who may be contacted for letters of recommendation (references will not be contacted without prior approval of the applicant). Submit application materials at https://psu.jobs/job/67464. For questions or additional information, please contact Dr. Russell Frank, at rfrank@psu.edu. Review of applications will begin on Dec. 1, 2016, and continue until filled. The 2017-18 academic year at Penn State begins July 1; Fall classes begin Aug. 21.

    Penn State provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, Penn State complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location where the University has facilities.
