The Kanbar Graduate Film Program is searching to fill a full-time faculty position on the Arts Professor track (non-tenure, open rank, 1 – 5 year contracts) or on a one-year visiting basis (for a senior faculty applicant or for a professional in the industry) to commence in the 2013-2014 academic year in film directing.

A substantial body of professional creative work and willingness to participate fully in the program and in other functions at the university is required.

Evidence of artistic achievement is also required. Teaching experience at the university level is preferred or the demonstrable capacity to translate one's professional experience into dynamic teaching is also acceptable.  Faculty members will teach 5 courses per year, advise graduate students, and participate in departmental and/or school-wide committees.  On-going professional work is encouraged and expected.
Salary, to be negotiated, includes an excellent benefits package. Finalists will be asked to submit creative work.
