ASSISTANT PROFESSOR: Media Studies/Digital Culture
The Department of Culture and Language Studies in the Faculty of Arts at the University of New Brunswick invites applications for a tenure-stream appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor. The start date of the position is July 1, 2014, subject to final budgetary approval.
We seek a candidate with a strong background in the study of media, technology, and culture, preferably one whose work crosses traditional boundaries between the humanities, social sciences and arts. Each of the programs in the Department of Culture and Language Studies engages students by placing art, literature and media in cultural context. The successful candidate’s research and teaching areas should strengthen these ties between our growing program and the department’s other programs in film studies and/or world literatures and cultures. An active research agenda in media studies, popular culture studies, cyberculture studies, digital humanities, music and technology, digital game studies, or the history and/or political economy of media & new media would be welcomed, as would some familiarity with current digital technologies.
Completion of a PhD and evidence of excellent teaching and research abilities are required. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate courses focusing on their area(s) of specialization, as well as core courses in the Media Arts & Cultures program (including Popular Culture and Digital Culture). (S)he will be expected to develop a course in approaches to the interdisciplinary study of culture, and will have the opportunity to contribute actively to shaping the future of media studies and film studies at UNB and to assist in developing our department’s unique combination of media, culture and language studies into a centre of research and teaching excellence in Atlantic Canada.
The Department of Culture and Language Studies at UNB houses a variety of specialists in languages, literatures, music, media and cultures. We are dedicated to the teaching of cultural literacy, which can best be achieved through the long-term development of linguistic competence and the study of literary and media texts in their social and cultural contexts. In the spirit of diversity and understanding, we are committed to our students, to the exploration of innovative teaching and research modes that draw upon common interests among our languages and disciplines, and to the strengthening of our links to the greater academic community and the community at large. The Media Arts & Cultures program has three essential components: critical, creative and technical. The first places the study of the media in an intellectual and social context. The second encourages the student to develop creatively as an individual. The third aspect of the degree seeks to ensure that the student has an appropriate level of competence with recent digital media technology.
Candidates should forward (electronically) a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and a teaching dossier with summaries of course evaluations and course outlines, and arrange to have three letters of reference sent to:
Closing Date for Applications: Sept. 30, 2013 or until a suitable candidate is found.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Applicants should indicate current citizenship status.
