Job Details

Cornell University’s Department of Performing and Media Arts seeks a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer or Assistant/Associate Professor of the Practice in Intermedia Dance/Multidisciplinary Movement for a full-time position beginning July 1, 2023. This is a renewable, non-tenure-track position. Title will be based upon qualifications and experience.


We are interested in candidates who can teach movement and dance across different media, and who are invested in innovative, anti-racist choreographic practices. The successful candidate will have experience in creative work and in teaching (in the classroom, through workshops, or master classes). Their interests may include but are not limited to minoritarian movement, disability and dance, Indigenous dance, and feminist and queer embodiment across live and mediated performances, multi-sensory productions, projections, installations, screen dance, dance theatre, short-form dance, film, and digital media. Professional experience and/or MFA is required.


The Department of Performing and Media Arts serves a diverse range of student populations. Teaching includes 3 movement/dance courses each semester, in composition and embodied practice, as well as courses that result in public presentations (which may count toward teaching). The person in this position will help teach and reimagine the core critical studies course (currently titled “Global Dance,” possibly renamed “Performance Worlds”) on a rotation with other dance and performance studies faculty, and collaborate with dance, performance, acting, costume, set, and sound design faculty. We are open to courses and directions based on the individual interest of the hire.


The Department of Performing and Media Arts is committed to the development of a campus climate that supports equality and diversity. We offer B.A. and Ph.D. degrees in a liberal arts environment that allow a wide range of students to study and explore live and mediated forms of creativity and expression (film, theatre, dance, immersive installation, etc.). More information is available at


Interested applicants should submit a cover letter that demonstrates how critical analysis is evident in the candidate’s creative work and pedagogical practice, a curriculum vitae, a teaching statement, three descriptions of courses they might be interested in teaching (up to 300 words each), three letters of recommendation, and a Statement of Contribution to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (please see ).


The deadline for applications is November 1, 2022.




Cornell University
Ithaca, NY

Challenging, visionary, international, beloved.

With 13,500 undergraduates and 6,000 graduate students, Cornell University is the largest and youngest university in the Ivy League. Its campus includes 14 colleges and schools: seven undergraduate units and four graduate and professional units in Ithaca; two medical graduate and professional units in New York City, and one in Doha, Qatar.

Cornell is a major research university with strengths in the life sciences, physical sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Faculty members work in collaborative, multidisciplinary teams to extend the frontiers of knowledge in diverse and numerous fields of study.

As a land-grant institution, Cornell applies research findings to improve the lives of the people of New York State and the world. Its innovative programs address issues that include human nutrition, health and safety, disease prevention, youth development, agriculture, animal health, environmental quality, sustainable energy, green design and construction, food safety, urban and regional planning, law, labor relations, immigration, economic policy, community development, and more.

Since its beginnings, Cornell University has educated students without regard to race, gender, religion, nationality, or wealth—in an academic community where all forms of knowledge are explored. Cornell was one of the first co-educational institutions in the East and one of the first to admit students of color. This egalitarian and practical vision of higher education, revolutionary when the university was founded in 1865, still informs Cornell’s guiding principles in the 21st century.

Cornell University is dedicated to its original mission of accessibility and opportunity, outreach, and public service.
