Posting Description: The Film Studies Program at the University of Colorado Boulder seeks qualified candidates for a tenure-track position in cinema production. We anticipate hiring at the Assistant Professor level. The Film Studies Program has a long standing record of supporting innovation in the art of cinema; the late Stan Brakhage taught for over twenty years at CU-Boulder in the Film Studies area. Film Studies offers degrees in filmmaking (BFA) and critical studies (BA). The BFA is focused on creative, artistic approaches to working with the moving image, and the BA emphasizes the critical study of film as an art form. We have recently added an interdisciplinary MFA degree in collaboration with the Department of Art and Art History. For more information about the Film Studies program and facilities, please see http://www.colorado.edu/FilmStudies/. Qualified candidates for this position should demonstrate a high level of artistic achievement in the moving image arts. Requirements for the position include a terminal degree in the field (MFA or Ph.D.), a distinguished/rising portfolio as both an artist and educator, a record of outstanding and creative moving image work, and an exemplary exhibition record. Teaching experience at the college level is preferred. Candidates should demonstrate proficiency in relevant filmmaking technology including its integration with digital technology. An artistic practice rooted in non-conventional fiction or non-fiction cinema is desirable, as is the capacity to teach and encourage students to explore narrative, experimental, documentary and/or hybrid film forms. The ideal candidate possesses strong conceptual, technical and theoretical understandings of the moving image arts. Teaching responsibilities will include course development, teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate level, serving on graduate thesis committees, and participating in university service.
