The Department of Journalism and Creative Media seeks a full-time instructor, non-tenure earning, renewable appointment of up to three years each (annual renewal based upon satisfactory performance review, staffing needs, funding, etc.), in the area of media production. The teaching load is four courses per semester, with potential for summer course offerings. The position begins August 16, 2021.
The successful candidates will have a proven track record in screenwriting, directing, producing, and videography, although preference will be given to candidates able to bridge these areas. The ideal candidates will also be able to teach in at least two of the following areas: audio production, editing, screenwriting, directing, and videography. Candidates must have earned an MA (MFA preferred) in film/video or a closely related field before the start date. The salary is nationally competitive.
Collaboration with other College units will be encouraged, including the College’s Digital Media Center, home to three professional media outlets—the professional production facilities of the state’s Center for Public Television and Radio, Alabama Public Radio, and WVUA 23, a full-power commercial television station serving the Birmingham market.
This department, created in 2016 with the merger of the Journalism Department and the Telecommunication & Film Department, houses approximately 900 undergraduate and master’s students. This department is one of four academic units in the College of Communication and Information Sciences. The College also includes a nationally ranked interdepartmental doctoral program. The College’s School of Library and Information Studies offers an MLIS degree and an MFA in Book Arts.
