Media Production Faculty
Cornell University’s Department of Performing and Media Arts seeks a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer or Assistant/Associate Professor of the Practice in Media Production 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 film, video, and media production in a multidisciplinary context. The successful candidate will have experience in both teaching (which may include classrooms, workshops, master classes) and the technical side of media production (which may include experience as Production Assistant, First Assistant Director, crew, producer, etc); experience and interest in creating media for live and mediated performances is highly desirable. Secondary interests may include but are not limited to cinematography, video design, lighting for live performance, projection, installation. A Master’s degree, or commensurate professional experience, is required.
This position will teach 3 media production courses each semester, including the introductory Media Production Lab (PMA 1410), and take a leading role in supervising and producing students’ media productions as part of independent studies or thesis projects (which may count toward a course). This position is expected to help guide and reimagine film and media production courses, and will collaborate with our filmmaking, screenwriting, acting, costume, set, and sound design faculty, as well as film/media studies faculty. We are open to new courses and directions based on the individual interests 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 students to study and explore live and mediated forms of creativity and expression (film, theatre, dance, immersive installation, etc.).
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a Statement of Contribution to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (please see http://facultydevelopment.cornell.edu/information-for-faculty-candidates/ for more information), a teaching statement, a sample reel and/or a narrative of creative/technical experience across projects large and small, and three letters of recommendation to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/23075.
