Position Description:    

The Art, Art History & Visual Studies Department at Duke University seeks applicants for a full-time Associate or Full Professor of the Practice in Cinematic Arts. The successful candidate will be a screenwriter or filmmaker with a screenwriting practice and a noteworthy screening and/or distribution record. Duke strongly values and supports faculty research and practice. The candidate will engage in an innovative, narrative filmmaking practice and possess an art historical and technical understanding of the subject. The candidate will be responsible for teaching courses from the introductory to graduate levels. Additionally, the candidate will advise undergraduate students on their thesis projects, as well as those in the Duke MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts program. We are particularly interested in faculty members who bring a critical perspective to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, including a global perspective of cinema to the classroom.

Duke faculty play an integral part in providing departmental service and we are particularly interested in candidates who could serve as our liaison to the Duke Entertainment Media Arts Network (DEMAN). In addition, the candidate would provide curricular oversight of our Los Angeles-based academic program (Duke in LA) in which the candidate might also teach sometimes. A pre-established connection to Los Angeles, while not necessary, would be considered an advantage.

The Duke Cinematic Arts major is based on a liberal arts curriculum and, accordingly, integrates practice courses with film history and theory courses. The program, which is housed in the Art, Art History and Visual Studies Department, also interfaces with other Duke departments that teach film. Additionally, the program has close ties to the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts program. Required Qualifications: An MFA (or relevant terminal degree), a significant creative practice in film, and a noteworthy screening and/or distribution record. Please submit the following materials to the automated job application service, http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/27111: a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, three samples of recent artistic work, and the names and contact information for three confidential referees. All applications received by March 1, 2024 will be guaranteed full consideration.
