The Department of Theater Studies at Duke University in Durham, NC invites applications and nominations for an open-rank Visiting Professor or an Instructor to begin July 2021. The field is Musical Theater. This full-time, one-year position requires a PhD in Theater History or a related field at the time of hire. The 2/2 teaching load will include both scholarly and laboratory-based classes in musical theater, so the ability to bridge theory to practice is essential; the ability to teach a more general course in theater history or to direct productions would be an asset. If hired as a Visiting Professor, the successful candidate will be an established scholar on leave from a permanent academic position. If hired as an Instructor, the successful candidate will show evidence of a promising career as a musical theater scholar. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Submit a cover letter addressed to Chair Torry Bend, vitae, writing sample, and two letters of recommendation. Applications received by March 15, 2021, will be guaranteed consideration.
