Appointment to this position will be for a term of two years beginning (first / second semester of year) Fall 2018 and will carry the rank of Assistant Professor. The position is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and by a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The incumbent will teach courses in the general area of global cinema, with a particular emphasis on non-Western cinemas. Teaching one course a semester over the term of the appointment, the incumbent would teach a 100-level general cinema course, a 200-level course which typically would focus on the cinema of a particular country or region within the incumbent’s field of expertise, and two 300 level advanced courses, at least one of which would focus on the history and theory of global cinema. We would expect to be flexible in adjusting to the incumbent’s specific field of expertise.
Among the qualifications required for appointment is the Ph.D. degree awarded between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2018. Candidates must hold a PhD from a US institution and demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable. We seek a diverse pool of applicants; successful candidates must be committed to working with diverse student and community populations.
