MEL HOPPENHEIM SCHOOL OF CINEMA

FACULTY OF FINE ARTS, CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY

Canada Research Chair in Media and Migration – Film Studies

Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, invites applications for an Emerging (Tier 2) Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Media and Migration within the Film Studies area (which houses the Film and Moving Image Studies doctoral program). The goal of the CRC program is to ensure that Canadian universities “achieve the highest levels of research excellence to become world-class research centres in the global, knowledge-based economy.”

We are seeking an emerging Canadian or international scholar demonstrating promising and innovative investigations into the relation between transnational, migratory and diasporic movements and the media forms and infrastructures in their contemporary or historical dimensions, broadly defined.  Candidates eligible for Tier II chair positions must be exceptional emerging scholars within 10 years of their highest degree at the time of nomination (exclusive of career interruptions). Candidates are encouraged to share any career interruptions or personal circumstances that may have had an impact on their career goals, such as the decision to have a family, eldercare, illness, and so forth, in their letter of application. Please consult the Canada Research Chairs website for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria.

Possible areas of specialization may include (but are not limited to): the technological, aesthetic, social and cultural dynamics of moving images across media and in global circulation; artistic, experimental, and other oppositional media practices that respond to and represent the intensification of migratory trends (both forced and voluntary); the multiplicity of narratives of migration and ideas about the migrant represented in film and media; labor migration and border-crossing within film and media industries; the entanglements between border regimes and media technologies of surveillance, tracking, and control; relationships between media infrastructures, structures of distribution, and diasporic formations; the mediation of migration patterns beyond South-North vectors; analyses of the shifting terrains of postcolonial and postsocialist spaces and infrastructures, the movement across them, and their articulations in and through media.

Attention to how questions of gender, race, ethnicity, indigeneity, sexuality, religion, class, dis/ability or language intersect with and frame both the patterns and predicaments of movement and the genres of mediation outlined above are strongly encouraged. Accordingly, we particularly encourage applications from underrepresented and minoritized scholars.

The successful candidate will have an important record of innovative or diverse research and publication (or, in the case of a junior scholar, show the promise for such a record with at least one peer-reviewed publication) and have demonstrated an ability to foster collaborative initiatives in or outside the university, secure appropriate funding, and mentor a diverse body of students. The candidate will also be expected to take a leadership role in continuing to build and expand the research culture of the department and university and its graduate programs, and this with an eye to the multiplicity of forms of media and migration around the globe.

The successful candidate for the CRC in Media and Migration, who will have obligatorily defended their PhD by June 30, 2020, will be appointed to the School of Cinema at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor and will be expected to possess expertise in Film Studies with a view of also teaching existing courses in the unit’s curricula. The candidate will work with the Faculty of Fine Arts to prepare the formal CRC application according to CRC program guidelines. The university will nominate the successful candidate to the CRC Secretariat at the earliest opportunity according to the guidelines of the CRC program.

Concordia is located in one of North America’s most diverse, creative and livable cities. The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema – Canada’s largest university-based centre for the study of film animation, film production and film studies – has an international reputation that continues to provide a benchmark for innovation and quality. The School of Cinema’s Film Studies programs are in great demand as a highly interdisciplinary domain of study situated within the globalization of culture, knowledge and technology. A young PhD program, as well as a vibrant MA in Film Studies, provide a rich context for advanced, critical study of the moving image, as well as for innovative and sustainable research programs in a variety of areas crucial to the rapidly changing field of film study.

Submissions must include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, copies of recent publications, a one-page research statement, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and three letters of recommendation. Candidates should address in their cover letter how their research and/or experience contribute to equity, diversity or inclusion.

A detailed five-year research plan, appropriate to the goals and objectives of the CRC program, will be required of all long-listed candidates, who will be contacted at the end of October.  Short-listed candidates will be invited for campus interviews in late November or early December.

Tier II Canada Research Chair in Media, Culture and the Environment
Trent University

Trent University invites applications from emerging scholars with a strong research profile for a Tier II Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Media, Culture, and the Environment. We are interested in candidates working on any subject in the intersection of the environmental humanities, media studies, and cultural studies, and from many different methodological approaches.

As a faculty member appointed to both the Department of Cultural Studies and the Trent School of the Environment (TSE), the CRC will have a strong multi-disciplinary background and the demonstrated potential to collaborate with faculty in the humanities and the social and natural sciences. The successful candidate will develop a personal five-year research plan within a collaborative institutional context: they will teach one or more courses in undergraduate degree programs associated with Cultural Studies and the TSE, and they will supervise graduate students in one or more MA or PhD programs, including Canadian Studies, Cultural Studies, Environmental and Life Sciences, Indigenous Studies, and Sustainability Studies. Additionally, they will benefit from research centres and groups including the Centre for the Study of Theory, Culture, and Politics, the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies, the Institute of Integrative Conservation Biology, and the Communicating Conservation Science Research Group.

As a Tier II CRC, the candidate must be an emerging scholar, which means that they will have received their PhD no more than ten years ago. At the same time, they should be an emerging world-class researcher who has demonstrated the sort of creative research and leadership that can attract, develop and retain excellent students and future researchers. Most importantly, the candidate must propose an original, innovative research program of high quality. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) will have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. More information can be found on the Canada Research Chairs’ website.

CRCs are highly competitive research professorships funded by the Government of Canada through the Canada Research Chairs Program. As such, the successful candidate will emphasize research over teaching and administrative responsibilities: CRCs typically teach one course each semester. They will be appointed as a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor to Trent University for a five year term, renewable once. The Trent appointment will be conditional on a successful Canada Research Chair nomination.

Application materials must be sent as one pdf file and include the subject line “Tier II CRC in Media, Culture, and the Environment.” By April, 30 2019, applicants should electronically submit the following to Cathy Gates, Director Office of Research and Innovation:

  1. A signed letter of application;
  2. A 5 year research plan (including your intentions for mentoring graduate and post-graduate students);
  3. A teaching philosophy (including your experiences in increasing equity, diversity, an inclusion in previous institutional environments and curricula and in supporting diverse students);
  4. A copy of your three most influential publications;
  5. A current CV;
  6. A completed self-identification form; and
  7. The names of three referees.

We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the treaty and traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabeg. We offer our gratitude to the First Peoples for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honour those teachings. Recognized as Canada’s outstanding environmental university, Trent has an extensive riverfront campus, including several nature reserves; less than two hours from Toronto, Ontario, it attracts a diverse student body.

Trent University is actively committed to creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive campus community and encourages applications from all qualified candidates. The University especially welcomes applications from the members of the four designated groups (applicants who identify as women, Indigenous people, racialized people, and people with disabilities). Recruitment will be guided by the Canada Research Chairs Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Practices, the Trent University Canada Research Chair Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan and by the University’s commitment to employment equity and diversity. Training and development activities related to unconscious bias, equity, diversity and inclusion for administrators and faculty involved in the recruitment and nomination processes for chair positions is mandatory.

All Candidates are invited to complete and submit a self-identification form alongside their application. By identifying, CRC applicants allow Trent University, and the Canada Research Chair Program, to measure the levels of diversity and collect data for all groups to ensure any systemic barriers within our policies and processes can be identified. The collected forms, and their associated data, will be kept confidential, and only accessed on a need-to-know basis by members of the selection committee and, for nominees selected, by the Canada Research Chair Program Office.

Trent University recognizes the impacts that interruptions (e.g., parental leave, extended leave due to illness, etc.) can have on a person’s career and research achievements, and these leaves will be carefully considered when reviewing the candidate’s record. Candidates are encouraged to explain in their application how career interruptions may have impacted them.

Trent University offers accommodation for applicants with disabilities in its recruitment processes. If you require accommodation during the recruitment process or require an accessible version of a document/publication, please contact Cathy Gates, Office of Research and Innovation.

About the Faculty and the School of Cinema

With over 4,000 students, faculty, and staff, the Faculty of Fine Arts is among the five largest art and design schools in North America. Montréal, our home, is exceptional: with 170,000 university students, a vibrant cultural scene, and the most affordable tuition in Canada, the city ranks among the top ten best destinations in the world for tertiary education. While supporting a significant Anglophone population, Montréal is the second largest French-speaking city after Paris. North America’s number one choice for international events and festivals, Montréal was the first metropolis to be designated a UNESCO City of Design by the Global Alliance for Cultural Diversity. Nestled in the heart of this pulsing city, embraced by a dynamic research university, the Faculty of Fine Arts benefits from extraordinary access to brilliant practitioners, thriving venues, cross-cultural perspectives, and an extensive network of outstanding facilities for research and production.

Taking advantage of our place within the rich fabric of a research university and our long history as one of the premiere sites in Canada for the study and creation of the arts and arts-based scholarship, the Faculty of Fine Arts is currently engaged in a transformative moment in which pedagogical, conceptual, theoretical, and material practices find resonance with a significant diversity of approaches. In our university community, live performance, historical research, methodological innovation, theoretical scholarship, technical experimentation, skills-based production, community fieldwork, as well as traditional and digital fabrication are equally valued. In addition to curricular experimentation, the formation of significant research centres and external partnerships in the Faculty of Fine Arts have enriched opportunities for faculty and students.

The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema—Canada’s largest university-based centre for the study of film animation, film production and film studies—is highly regarded around the world. The School hosts programs in Film Studies, Film Production, and Film Animation. Among the degrees offered are a BFA in Film Studies, a BFA in Art History and Film Studies, MAs in Film Studies and Cinematic Arts, and a PhD in Film and Moving Image Studies that attracts a diverse and international student body.
