NOTES:

Curious to see this position pop up, which seems very similar to the previous position at this school (below) that was just cancelled. Does anyone know what the deal is here?

NOTE comment on this search from Communication and Media Studies 2011-2012: "This is a relaunch of the failed Digital Humanities search, which is itself a relaunch of the Visual Media position they opened up for the 2010-2011 job search cycle. They've been unable to fill the position two years in a row. Heads up."

Our well-established undergraduate and graduate programs in Production, Screenwriting and Cinema and Media Studies attract strong students from across Canada and internationally. We seek a scholar with a well-developed research program and teaching experience in at least one of the following areas: emerging forms of moving image media and cross-platform environments of media production (from mobile cinema to augmented reality and large screen projection); new forms of image making (from CGI/animation to videogames); new forms of media dissemination (including social media). A record of accomplishment that spans the academic, professional and artistic sectors, including an established or emerging profile as a screen-based practitioner, is strongly preferred. The successful candidate’s research background should allow her or him to draw upon the history of cinematic practices. Along with a solid record of scholarly publication, the successful candidate will have demonstrated skill in digital aesthetics and multi-media narrative. The successful candidate will be responsible for designing and teaching new introductory and advanced undergraduate courses, as well as for actively shaping and teaching graduate offerings and conducting graduate supervision in this field of study. This position is intended to cultivate a research and curriculum overlap between the Department’s programs in Cinema and Media Studies and the Faculty of Fine Arts’ BA in Digital Media. The candidate will join the Department’s Cinema & Media Studies area, but a capacity to teach courses in the Department’s other streams, Film Production and/or Screenwriting, would be a strong asset. The successful candidate must have a PhD in Film or Media Studies, or a related area; additional academic and/or professional experience in a relevant artistic field; three years of post-secondary teaching; and a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching, graduate supervision, and administrative service. Candidates will show excellence or promise of excellence in scholarly and {C}creative research and teaching. Preference will be given to those who have their PhD in hand at the time of application. A letter of application with an up-to-date, detailed curriculum vitae, writing sample and examples of recent work, statements of creative and/or research interests and teaching philosophy, course outlines and teaching evaluations, and the names, addresses and e-mails of three referees should be sent, by November 15, 2011, to: Amnon Buchbinder, Chair, Department of Film, Room 222 Centre for Film' and Theatre, York University, 4700 Keele Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M3J 1P3..
