JOB ANNOUNCEMENT:

Faculty position in Experimental Media, begins September 2009. Review
of complete applications begins January 6, 2009.

We seek a media artist with demonstrated experience teaching
experimental moving image practices, and cultural and critical
theories of media. The successful candidate will have a strong
commitment to teaching and will be able to contribute to an intensive
media program that emphasizes the theory and practice of experimental,
non-fiction and/or documentary production. Because Evergreen
organizes its curriculum through interdisciplinary coordinated studies
(rather than through departments and courses) the ideal candidate will
demonstrate engagement with one or more disciplines outside of the
media arts through creative work, teaching or research.

We seek candidates with critical expertise and production skills in at
least three of the following areas: experimental video, installation
or performance, multi-media production, animation, sound design, and
new technologies (such as circuit bending, Max/MSP/Jitter, or Arduino
interfacing). We require experience teaching visual analysis, media
literacy, media history and theory and/or art history and theory, and
the ability to work effectively with students on writing. We are
particularly interested in candidates who are exploring the
implications of a globalized media culture, including internet or
media activism, mass media and popular culture, and multicultural
media arts.

This position is designed for a working artist and teacher with an MFA
or other terminal degree and an active exhibition record.

Evergreen faculty members on teaching teams work closely with students
and enjoy a high degree of freedom to determine the subject matter,
pace, emphasis, classroom strategies and modes of evaluation.
Candidates with experience teaching with faculty from disciplines
outside the humanities are particularly encouraged to apply. We also
encourage applicants who have had experience teaching and/or working
with students from underrepresented populations.

This is a Regular Faculty position, eligible for continuing
appointment after two, three-year renewable contracts. All
requirements for this position must be completed by the end of
academic year 2008-09. Review of complete applications begins January
6, 2009 and will continue until finalists are selected.
