Cinema Artist:
The Film Studies Program at the University of Colorado, Boulder is searching
for qualified candidates for a tenure-track position in cinema production.
We anticipate hiring at the Assistant Professor level. The Film Studies
Program has a longstanding record of supporting innovation in the art of
cinema; the late Stan Brakhage taught for over twenty years at CU-Boulder
within the Film Studies area. Film Studies offers degrees in filmmaking
(BFA) as well as critical studies (BA); the BFA is focused on creative,
artistic approaches to working with the moving image, and the BA emphasizes
the critical study of film as an art form. We have recently added an
interdisciplinary MFA degree in collaboration with the Department of Art and
Art History. For more information about the Film Studies program and
facilities, please see http://www.colorado.edu/FilmStudies/.

Qualified candidates for this position should demonstrate a high level of
artistic achievement in the moving image arts. Requirements for the position
include a terminal degree in the field or demonstration of a distinguished
creative portfolio as both an artist and educator; a record of outstanding
and creative moving image work; exemplary exhibition record; and teaching
experience at the college level. Candidates should demonstrate proficiency
in relevant filmmaking technology including its integration with digital
technology. An artistic practice rooted in non-conventional fiction or
non-fiction cinema is desirable. The ideal candidate possesses strong
conceptual, technical and theoretical understandings of the moving image
arts. Teaching responsibilities will include course development, teaching at
both the graduate and undergraduate level, serving on graduate thesis
committees, and participating in university service.
