NOTES:

  • to the people who were asked for additional materials, what did they request? Writing sample, or something else?
  • I checked my application in interfolio today, and noticed that it said my application was incomplete, with new fields to upload writing samples, evaluations, and syllabuses. HOWEVER, I didn't get an email/phone call requesting additional materials.  Anyone else notice this, or should I expect a request soon?
  • I noticed the same thing in interfolio for my application. I'm thinking that maybe they had to turn that function on for all applicants and then they would "open" those new fields to the people they chose to request more materials from--because I can see the fields, but I can't upload any additional info (x2)
  • I've just realized I was requested new materials but I can't add any in Interfolio. Any idea of what's going on?
  • FWIW, I received an email from the search chair (through Interfolio's interface) requesting 3 syllabi and up to 6 documents demonstrating teaching effectiveness, with explicit instructions for some of those to be full qualitative and quantitative teaching evals. I was able to upload these items, and my application is now listed as "complete" in Interfolio. 
  • Thank you! I contacted them and they said it was a problem with Interfolio.

The Department of Communication Arts in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences invites nominations and applications for a tenure-track, Assistant Professor of Multimedia Film and Production.

Georgia Southern University, classified as a doctoral/research institution by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, is a member of the University System of Georgia. As the largest and most comprehensive research institution in southeast Georgia, the University is a residential campus of more than 20,500 students representing 48 states and 89 nations.

Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, Georgia Southern offers a comprehensive array of baccalaureate degrees and selected master's and doctoral programs through eight colleges: Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Information Technology, Health and Human Sciences, Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Public Health, Science and Mathematics and Graduate Studies.

Founded in 1906, Georgia Southern lays claim to being the most beautiful campus in the state. Comprising more than 900 acres, the University grounds are an arboretum-like treasure featuring gently rolling lawns, scenic ponds and soaring pines. Located in Statesboro, a safe Main Street community of approximately 30,000 residents not far from Savannah and Hilton Head Island, Georgia Southern provides the benefits of a major university with the feeling of a smaller college.

Within this setting, the Department of Communication Arts is the largest department in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and home to five majors: Communication Studies, Multimedia Journalism, Multimedia Film and Production, Public Relations, and Theatre.

The Multimedia Film and Production program at Georgia Southern University prepares students for positions in radio, television, film, and Internet-related businesses. The program of study equips majors with the ability to be quality communicators in all senses of the word: speaking, research and writing, and producing media artifacts. Rigorous classroom instruction is complimented by experiential activities that encourage students to both learn about and apply knowledge during the program of study. The curriculum is designed to address the changing nature of the industries into which the program’s graduates seek employment. The ideal candidate for this position will be expected to support the departmental mission by contributing to experiential learning within a multidisciplinary context, enhancing the research profile of the department, and developing a graduate program.

Position Description. Reporting to the Department Chair, the Assistant Professor of Multimedia Film and Production position requires teaching a variety of introductory and advanced video/film-style production courses including cinematography, lighting, digital editing, screenwriting, audio and film studies courses. The Assistant Professor will also engage in scholarship, producing competition-level film or video projects, and/or publishing in peer-reviewed journals. The position is a 9/10-month tenure-track appointment, and the salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
