Founded in 1907, California College of the Arts (CCA) is an independent non-profit art college with undergraduate programs in architecture, design, fine arts, visual studies, and writing and literature. The college also has graduate programs in architecture, comics, design, interaction design, curatorial practice, design strategy, fine arts, social practice, film, visual and critical studies, and writing. Through these programs, the college has created a dynamic and interdisciplinary environment to fulfill the school's motto of "Make art that matters." Diverse cultural perspectives enrich the CCA community and the college believes that continuing to expand the horizons of the students and faculty is essential to achieving its educational objectives. CCA represents over one hundred years of dedication to its mission, whose character reflects its location in the San Francisco Bay Area, where histories of radical politics and technological innovation inform a culturally rich academic community infused by art schools, research universities, world-renowned museums, galleries, start-ups and community-run institutions. With campuses in Oakland and San Francisco, CCA currently enrolls 1,950 full-time students and is embarking on a major campus planning project that will unify the college in one location and ensure its academic excellence for the next century.

PROGRAM SUMMARY: The Writing & Literature program at CCA offers a BA in Writing & Literature and delivers instruction to all students in composition, literature, and creative writing. Faculty in Writing & Literature may also have the opportunity to teach graduate-level courses, including those in the MFA Writing program. Both writing programs are part of the Humanities & Sciences Division, which also offers the general education curriculum for all undergraduate students in the college. The general education curriculum consists of courses in writing, literature, visual studies, history, philosophy, math, and science. In keeping with its mission of delivering a liberal arts education through the arts, CCA offers a strong academic component that supports students' work in their majors while adding to the breadth of knowledge they encounter.

We are also interested in applicants whose creative practices promise to connect with the College's fine art, design, and architecture students/faculty. This practice might be related to film, journalism, digital essay writing, and the relationship between prose and other types of narrative.

We seek a candidate with a global perspective, who has the potential to teach 200-level electives and 300-level seminars in her or his area of expertise, which may include introductory and advanced literature and creative writing courses.

In keeping with CCA's commitment to diversity, community engagement and social justice, we seek candidates who cultivate an equitable scholarly environment and curriculum. With an increasingly international student body and a commitment to domestic diversity, candidates should have a proven track record of teaching and leading in a culturally competent manner with a global perspective, working with diverse groups and fostering an understanding of and respect for diverse cultural practices. The ideal candidate will engage critical strategies and/or research methodologies that promote social and intellectual inquiry, and their teaching, service or public outreach will have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education. Service to the program and the college is expected.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Terminal degree: PhD in literature (or an equivalent field) or MFA in Creative Writing. Minimum of three years postdoctoral/post-MFA college level teaching experience. Significant publishing record; at least one book of creative nonfiction writing in a nationally recognized venue.

NOTES:

  • FYI, everyone, there is a rather damning write-up about this place in the "Universities to Fear" page. 
  • I just looked this up. From the write-up: "A few female chairs and deans truly hate males and get their revenge." So, I'd also take the write-up with a grain of salt.

Durham University (UK) - Lecturer (= TT Asst. Professor) - Interdisciplinary Literary StudiesEdit

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates who have research and teaching interests in interdisciplinary literary studies, in an area such as (but not restricted to) digital humanities, literature and the environment, literature and visual culture, or cross-media narrative. The successful candidate will be expected to have an excellent research and teaching profile, commensurate with career stage, which will complement the Department's existing strengths. He or she will be able to make a significant contribution to undergraduate teaching and to teach widely and flexibly across a range of periods and subjects. He or she may also be asked to contribute to postgraduate teaching and examining. The successful candidate will be a research leader and will be expected to contribute to one or more of Durham's interdisciplinary research groups or centres.

The appointment is the equivalent of tenure-track, i.e. potentially permanent; "lecturer" in the UK is the equivalent of "assistant professor."

The Department of English Studies is one of the leading English departments in the United Kingdom, with a lively research culture and excellent students. In 2016 it was named the best English department in the UK for the fourth successive year by the Complete University Guide (cp. the US News and World Report rankings, within the US).

NOTES:

  • The request for a 1/2 hour video from semi-finalist seems weird. That's an odd amount of time, given that most classes are generally 1 hour, 1.5 hours, or 3 hours long. And, what about the legal issues of recording your students to send to a third party?! Don't you legally have to have the permission of each student to record them, and wouldn't you need to disclose to students how you're using their image? I'm not sure Human Resources has thought through this request, and anyone who is applying for this position should check the legal issues of the video recording requirement for semi-finalists.
  • It is unusual, but this school has included the same semi-finalist request in all of its ads in the last few years. So the SC probably has answers for some of the questions raised above, if semi-finalists wish to ask.
