Req ID: 32575
Job Category: Faculty – Tenure Stream (continuing)
Faculty/Division: Faculty of Arts & Science
Department: Cinema Studies Institute
Campus: St. George (Downtown Toronto)

Description:

The Cinema Studies Institute and the Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies in the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto invites applications for a full-time tenure stream position in Trans Cinema and Media Studies. This will be a joint appointment between Cinema Studies (51%) and the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies (49%). The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an expected start date of July 1, 2024, or shortly thereafter.

This search aligns with the University’s commitment to strategically and proactively promote diversity among our community members (Statement on Equity, Diversity & Excellence). Recognizing that Black, Indigenous, and other Racialized communities have experienced inequities that have developed historically and are ongoing, we strongly welcome and encourage candidates from those communities to apply.

Applicants must have a PhD degree in Cinema and Media Studies and/or Gender and Sexuality Studies, or a closely related area, in hand by the time of appointment, with a clearly demonstrated exceptional record in research and teaching, as well as a clear commitment to ongoing development in these domains. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and strengthen the existing profiles of the Cinema Studies Institute and Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies. The successful applicant is expected to have extensive expertise in both Cinema and Media Studies and Trans Studies. We especially welcome candidates with primary commitments to trans of colour critique, critical race theory, anti-carceral critique, transnational, diasporic, and transcultural approaches that open-up representational practices, histories, and theoretical frameworks and unsettle rigid North-South hemispheric binaries. Areas of research may include but are not limited to trans media arts, trans political economies of cinema and media, trans embodiment and trans cultural practices around cinematic media aesthetics and technologies, critical platform studies, as well as decolonial approaches to cinema and media. Candidates will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research and to establish an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program.

The successful candidate will teach a variety of courses for both Cinema Studies and Sexual Diversity Studies, including but not limited to their area of specialization and to the areas of trans, cinema, and media studies outlined above. The candidate must be eager to teach both specialized courses in Trans Cinema and Media Studies, as well as Cinema and Media Studies and Trans Studies more generally.

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence, which can be demonstrated by a record of publications in top-ranked and field-relevant academic journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, the submitted research statement, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades, and strong endorsements from referees.

Evidence of excellence in teaching will be provided through teaching accomplishments, the teaching dossier including a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations as submitted as part of the application, as well as strong letters of reference. Other teaching-related activities can include performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or excellent conference presentations or posters.

Candidates are also expected to show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and the promotion of a respectful and collegial learning and working environment demonstrated through the application materials.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

The University of Toronto is one of the world’s top research-intensive universities and, with its multicultural student body and cosmopolitan setting, it offers the opportunity to teach, conduct research, and live in one of the world’s most diverse and dynamic cities.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose research, teaching, and service bear out our commitment to equity. Candidates are therefore also asked to submit a 1‐2 page statement of contributions to equity and diversity, which might cover topics such as (but not limited to): research or teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities, the development of inclusive pedagogies, or the mentoring of students from underrepresented groups.
