Assistant Professor in Narrative Filmmaking Tenure Track

The Department of Communication at Santa Clara University, a Jesuit, Catholic university, invites applications for the position of a tenure-track assistant professor in Narrative Filmmaking to begin in Fall 2022. We are particularly interested in applicants whose creative work and teaching focuses on Black and/or Latinx experiences and/or the representation of people of color, and whose teaching addresses one or more of the following, ideally through a social justice lens: production, screenwriting, editing or cinematography.

This Search is part of a cluster hire in Race, Inequality, and Social Justice taking place in six departments in the College of Arts & Sciences.

The selected applicant will teach introductory courses in filmmaking and advanced production courses in their area of specialty with a preference for teaching and creative scholarship that focuses on Black or Latinx identities, narratives, and politics. The candidate will be expected to teach courses that focus on race, gender, immigration, and/or global identities related to production and representation in cinema.

Candidates should demonstrate a record of innovative work and a strong creative portfolio, including the ability to exhibit at festivals, theaters and/or on television, as well as evidence of successful teaching. While professional experience is desirable, candidates must have an MFA in film/television production, or a Ph.D. in communication or related field and extensive production experience.
