The Communication Technology Division of AEJMC (see aejmc.org) is launching an academic journal.

This UROP appointment is for an editorial assistant that can build a website and online submission system as well as reach out to potential reviewers. This position has funding and would require a minimal (approximately 5 hours per week) time commitment. Additional benefits include being at the forefront of academic publishing and media research as well as networking with leading scholars in the communication field.
