    The Department of Film and Media Studies at Emory University in Atlanta, GA invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Film Production. Appointment begins in August 2019. We seek an experienced filmmaker with a national or international reputation whose work primarily focuses on issues of identity, race and ethnicity and does so in innovative and critically informed  ways. The successful applicant will join a growing, dynamic program in a Tier 1 research university located in Atlanta, which has been ranked the third largest center for the creation of feature films and television.

    The successful candidate must have a film and video production M.F.A. degree in hand, an established record of creative production activity (which could include fiction, non-fiction, long or short form, theatrical/broadcast/cable/festival/web distributed media), a commitment to diversity, and preferably at least 2 years of undergraduate teaching experience.

    In addition to maintaining an active creative/research agenda and participating in service to the department, the candidate will be expected to teach two classes per semester in our core filmmaking curriculum and add new production classes based on their own areas of expertise. The candidate will also be expected especially to forge connections with the thriving film industry in Atlanta, effectively mentor individual students, support a growing internship program, and understand the place of a production curriculum in a liberal arts context that integrates filmmaking and critical studies.
