Position description

The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in the Faculty of Fine Arts invites applications for a tenure-track position in Film and Moving Image Studies at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 1, 2024. Duties include teaching undergraduate (BFA) and graduate (MA & PhD) courses in the Film and Moving Image Studies area. The incumbent will be asked to teach a 2/2 load and should be prepared to supervise graduate students, serve on graduate supervisory committees, and perform administrative duties. Over time, the successful candidate will actively engage in program stewardship and participate in committee work at the Department, Faculty and University levels. In addition to teaching and service, faculty members are expected to maintain an active research profile.

Qualifications and assets

Applicants for this position must have a PhD in Film Studies, Media Studies, or a cognate discipline (or be completed by the start date of the appointment). The successful candidate will have teaching experience at the university level and demonstrate an active program of research as well as a record of publications. Prior activities demonstrating leadership, service, and commitment to diversity will be considered assets. We are seeking candidates with expertise in the field of Film and Moving Image Studies whose research and teaching focuses on methodologies and issues of racial and ethnic diversity, equity, and inclusion. Preference will be given to candidates whose research approaches histories and/or theories of film, television, and other moving image media through the critical perspectives of race, ethnicity, indigeneity, intersectionality, decoloniality, disability and/or diasporic studies. The ideal candidate will be a scholar working in the burgeoning fields of Indigenous Studies, Black Studies, and Critical Race Studies in the Americas and beyond in the areas of film, television, and moving image media, with a research profile that addresses underrepresented groups or geographical areas, (trans)cultural perspectives and modes of artistic or media-based political activism and dissent including but not limited to anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racisms, legacies of colonialism, and other forms of systemic oppression.

The main criteria for selection are scholarly and teaching excellence. The successful candidate will provide evidence of high-quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications and the securing of external research funding, as well as strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidates are encouraged to share any career interruptions or personal circumstances that may have had an impact on their career goals in their letter of application. These will be carefully considered in the assessment process. The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema values diversity among its faculty and strongly encourages applications from women and members of underrepresented groups. Concordia University is an English-language institution of higher learning at which the primary language of instruction and research is English. Since this position supports academic functions of the university, proficiency in English is required. Working knowledge of French, including reading and grading student work in French, is an asset.
