Location: Cincinnati, OH, US

The Electronic Media Division of the University of Cincinnati seeks a creative individual with a passion for teaching for a tenure-track appointment in the area of film and television production beginning in the Fall of 2019. The Electronic Media Division offers a wide range of classes in film and television production, audio production, multimedia production and broadcast news, along with courses that emphasize media writing, aesthetics and theory. The division enrolls around 200 “E-Media” majors who graduate with a bachelor of fine arts degree. Our students and faculty are a vital creative component in interdisciplinary collaborations (both curricular and extra-curricular) with an array of other creative programs in acting, dance, commercial music production, musical theatre and theatre design at the College-Conservatory of Music, one of the preeminent performing and media arts colleges in the country.


Responsibilities will include teaching classes in television and film production and postproduction to E-Media majors. A proficiency in digital cinematography, postproduction, and directing/producing in narrative, non-fiction, music video and commercial genres is expected. These classes use Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop, as well as Avid Media Composer, so expertise in these software programs is necessary. The opportunities to also teach advanced level classes in digital design, audio and broadcast journalism production are also likely to occur. There are ample opportunities for creative cross-disciplinary collaborations within CCM and across the UC campus. The successful candidate will also be expected to develop a sustained output of scholarly and/or creative contributions and serve the college and community, while maintaining regular office hours in the division in order to advise and mentor students.


This appointment is expected to be at the rank of Assistant Professor. Salary will be commensurate with educational background and experience. To ensure fullest consideration, applications should be submitted by February 28, 2019, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. We are committed to increasing the diversity of the University community. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply and to identify their strengths or experiences in this area.


Minimum qualifications: Master’s degree with 3-5 years of significant professional experience and some teaching experience. Proficiency with current digital cinema cameras, the Adobe Creative Suite and Avid Media Composer.


Ideal Qualifications: M.F.A. in film, television or video production (or other relevant terminal degree), with 5-7 years of significant professional experience, university-level teaching experience and mastery of additional digital cinema and postproduction tools. A demonstrated commitment to collaboration with other programs in the performing arts.


Include indicators of teaching effectiveness, professional experience, links to a current creative portfolio, and three references with their contact information.
