    Might be a nice chance for old journos wanting to test academia.

    Or an opportunity for a new experience away from daily journalism.

    I love Missoula. That's all I have to add. Would be a really fun place to spend a semester.

    Worked up there, along with several UM grads on our staff. Nice campus, nice town. Program has a good reputation.

    Funny, the ad does not mention academic requirements. Most teaching positions I have come across require a Master's as a bare minimum in order to even get considered. It does say "national reputation", however one wants to interpret that.

    It's a visiting professorship. They're not looking for an academic. The ideal candidate, I presume, is an experienced and savvy professional who can teach students real-world things that full-time professors — those with master's degrees — are unable to.

    Looking at the list of recent professors should give a pretty good idea about the caliber of candidate sought: Chris Jones, Eli Saslow, Hank Stuever. Talk about masters...

    I'd be afraid I wouldn't be able to pull myself away from the Big Sky Brewery and the Rhino for enough time to actually work.
  6. Great opportunity, and the pay is great for a semester in Missoula.

    Looks like it is similar to the adjunct professor who is not an instructor normally.
    Hmm. I am distinguished (I think) lots of things in life are temporary and I profess something.
  8. Not similar at all. Adjuncts normally do not have responsibilities besides teaching the course they are contracted for and holding office hours.

    Plus, this position pays a heck of a lot more than an adjunct.
