The Department of Communication at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for a tenure-track position in Film Studies and Media Production. They are seeking talented applicants qualified for an assistant professor position. Under exceptional circumstances, highly qualified candidates at other ranks may receive consideration. They seek a colleague who is a Film Studies maker-scholar and whose research includes a commitment to critical paradigms expressed and embodied both in scholarly publication as well as through moving image production.
This maker-scholar position will help integrate their Film Studies curriculum with Media Production offerings, while expanding the range of courses offered in both these areas at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This position extends a department tradition and commitment to original, interdisciplinary research that includes written as well as critical and multi-modal scholarship. Specific areas of expertise are open, with preference for candidates whose work is focused on Black cinema and expressive culture, critical race, and/or postcolonial perspectives on film and media.
