About Binghamton University:
Binghamton University is a world-class institution that unites more than 130 broadly interdisciplinary educational programs with some of the most vibrant research in the nation. Our unique character - shaped by outstanding academics, facilities and community life - promotes extraordinary student success.
Binghamton merges rigorous academics, distinguished faculty and state-of-the-art facilities to engage and challenge its 18,000 students. The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college-goers to international students. Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.
Binghamton University's Cinema Department develops artists and creative thinkers who are willing to explore experimental modalities of practice. A strong history of underground and independent production has made our trailblazing department an antidote to the Hollywood industry model.
We seek an established or emerging artist, working and exhibiting in experimental modes of production, for a full-time, tenure-track appointment in our production stream at the rank of assistant professor. This position carries a 2/2 teaching load. The successful candidate will maintain an active creative practice and will also contribute to the department via service, including committee work, independent studies, thesis, curricular development, etc. We started an MFA in Cinema Program in Fall 2023, and the successful applicant will work together with the faculty, staff, and students to shape this new program.
We are committed to offering an enriching educational environment that is inclusive of all of its constituents and that fosters a diverse, multi-vocal, connected community. We recognize that the field of cinema does not reflect the diversity of the population that it serves. We invite applications from colleagues who share in our commitment to a more inclusive discipline, through Cinematic practice, research, and teaching.
This position is part of Binghamton's multiyear cluster hire initiative in Arts Practice, Performance and Research in the 21st Century.
Applicants should hold an MFA or equivalent terminal degree and display a strong commitment to fostering a student culture in which video or filmmaking as a creative practice will flourish. We value effective teaching and technical proficiency. Preferred qualifications include a strong record as an artist and experience teaching at a college level. We encourage the integration of alternative processes involving installation, performance, animation, and new media, and we value global and cross-cultural perspectives.
