The Department of Culture and Language Studies in the Faculty of Arts at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick (Canada), invites applications for a tenure track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in Media and Culture. The start date of the position is July 1, 2016.\
We seek a candidate with a PhD in Media Studies (or a related discipline) completed at the time of application. The candidate’s area of specialization should contribute to the department’s strengths in film studies and film production and/or game studies and game design. An active research profile in the field of media and cultural studies, and an excellent teaching record are also required. Candidates’ experience in the media arts and content creation would be an asset.
The successful candidate’s research and teaching areas will contribute to the existing departmental areas of specialization and help develop the core cultural studies curriculum shared between our Media Arts & Cultures program and the department’s new Comparative Cultural Studies program. Teaching assignments will include foundational undergraduate courses in media studies, film studies, game studies, media production and/or popular culture as well as new courses related to their specific areas of specialization. The successful candidate will contribute actively to curriculum development within the department in shaping the future of media and cultural studies at UNB.
Media Arts & Cultures at UNB is an interdisciplinary program that combines critical and creative work, encouraging students to become both scholars of media and authors of media. Bringing together perspectives from the social sciences, humanities, and fine arts, and grounded in the Canadian tradition of communication studies, it is built around the assumption that critical thinking about today’s media cultures benefits significantly from practical experience with the processes and technologies of cultural production. Candidates are encouraged to examine the Media Arts & Cultures program’s distinct mix of critical and creative course offerings (available on our website) and consider how they might contribute to and enhance our existing program offerings.
Applicants are asked to electronically submit a letter of application and a C.V. (in either PDF or Word formats) email@example.com. In addition, candidates should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent electronically under separate cover before the deadline to the attention of Dr. Anette Guse, Chair, Dept. of Culture and Language Studies, UNB Fredericton, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Position is subject to final budgetary approval.
Please note: writing samples, teaching dossiers, and sample syllabi will only be requested of those selected for further consideration by the hiring committee.
Closing Date for Applications: Feb. 15, 2016.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Applicants should indicate current citizen status.

Reel Limits: (Re)Conceptualizing Cinematic Space, Bodies and Landscape
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: KAY DICKINSON
Associate Professor, Concordia University
CONFERENCE DATES: MARCH 11 & 12, CARLETON UNIVERSITY, OTTAWA
Rapidly evolving technologies and postmodern conceptions of media have made the definition of cinematic space difficult to articulate. This conference will address this quandary by looking at the differences between what is new, what is the same, and the current fluidity of cinema. Inspired by the changing dynamics in the discourse of cinema, we are looking to reevaluate the cinematic by considering what all cinematic space and the material objects that comprise that space might encompass.
Specific topics might include but are not limited to:
- The relationship between people and lived spaces.
- New conceptions of bodies and landscape, possibly due to queer theory or “ecocriticism.”
- Technological affect within filmic worlds.
- The affect of specific cultural and temporal milieus on clusters of films and filmmakers.
- The interdependence of filmmakers and institutions such as film industries and festivals.
- The changing interface of cinema due to the emergence of cross-platform media.
Proposals should include a 300 word abstract, a working title, name and institutional affiliation, a working bibliography of 2-3 sources.
Please email proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 14, 2015.
Students of Film Studies and all disciplines are invited to submit proposals and share their research at this conference.

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN FILM PRODUCTION
School for the Contemporary Arts
Simon Fraser University
The School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University invites applications for a tenure track position in film production at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 1, 2016. We are seeking a filmmaker or filmmaker/scholar with a significant track record in fiction, non-fiction, and/or experimental film/video production who is able to supervise and advise students on projects at all levels of our program and in a variety of forms and styles from fiction to documentary to experimental. We seek candidates with grounding in the creative aspects of film and video production, knowledge of new digital production workflows, a strong knowledge of film history, and the ability to also teach courses in cinema and media studies on a regular basis. As our film program is situated within an interdisciplinary art school, an interest in working together with fellow faculty in the other arts and fostering interdisciplinarity amongst students is also desirable. We especially value innovative and experimental approaches to creative work and inventive approaches to pedagogy.
The BFA in Film is a four-year, cohort-based production program that includes a very strong component of instruction in film studies. Students are exposed to the breadth of film styles and modes. They work intensively together over four years, each producing a number of their own productions. Our goal is to provide a well-rounded film production and studies education that also permits students to specialize in areas of their particular interest. Our students go on to be directors, producers, DPs, editors, screenwriters, and artists working in a variety of media and forms.
The School for the Contemporary Arts is located in a dynamic neighbourhood in the heart of downtown Vancouver and provides a diverse and engaging intellectual and artistic atmosphere in which to work. The School is an interdisciplinary fine and performing arts and scholarly program that offers a BA in Art, Performance, and Cinema Studies, and BFAs in Dance, Film, Music, Theatre, and Visual Art, as well as an interdisciplinary MFA and an MA in Comparative Media Arts. Faculty at the School are required to maintain a professional art practice and/or scholarly activity. A normal academic year for tenure track faculty in the School for the Contemporary Arts consists of two teaching semesters and a research semester; faculty generally teach four courses (or the equivalent) per year. Advising, committee responsibilities, supervision of graduate students, and occasional graduate level teaching are expected.
Requirements for the position include: an MA, MFA, or Ph.D. in film production or a relevant field; a well-established track record of film exhibition and production; a vibrant and continuing artistic practice. Experience teaching at the college or university level is an asset.
Applications must include: a letter of application outlining creative and scholarly background and philosophy; a curriculum vitae; links to 3 samples of artistic work; a statement of teaching philosophy; and the names and contact information (email, telephone) for three confidential referees. Please note that materials submitted will not be returned. Submit all applications by email to Elspeth Pratt, Director c/o Samantha Diamond, email@example.com
The review of applications will begin October 2, 2015 and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by this date. The position is subject to availability of funding and final approval by the SFU Board of Governors. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. Simon Fraser University is committed to employment equity and encourages applications from all qualified women and men, including visible minorities, Aboriginal people, and persons with disabilities. Under the authority of the University Act personal information that is required by the University for academic appointment competitions will be collected.
