ARTIST in Narrative Media
University of California, San Diego -- Department of Visual Arts
Assistant Professor, tenure-track, to begin July 1, 2015

Situated within the Division of Arts and Humanities at UC San Diego, the Department of 
Visual Arts is committed to academic excellence and diversity 
among its faculty, staff, and student body. 

The Department invites applications for a tenure-track position in narrative media 
practices. We seek candidates who engage with the formal and conceptual components
of storytelling, re-imagining how narrative is used and interpreted, from classical forms 
in cinematic, televisual, and video narratives to other established and emerging media 
forms and technologies. We welcome candidates with a demonstrated record of artistic 
and scholarly impact and fluency in the theories, techniques, and methods of narrative 
practice informed by an understanding of contemporary art, including attention to critical
strategies, historical frameworks and narrative media archaeology.  Possible emphases 
may include but are not limited to narrative cinema or video; new prosumer 
cinematographies; narrative sound design; interactive or transmedia 
storytelling; speculative futurism; video games, and other traditional and evolving 
platforms which reframe subjectivity by engaging narrative approaches that are 
conceptual, experimental and para-fictional.

We seek candidates whose research, teaching, and service have prepared them to 
contribute to diversity and inclusion. Applicants are asked to summarize their past or 
potential contributions to diversity in their personal statement. Contributions might 
include leadership in teaching, mentoring, research or service towards building an 
equitable and diverse scholarly environment and/or increasing access or participation of
individuals from historically underrepresented groups.

The Department offers BA, MFA, and Ph.D degrees.  Faculty in all areas of our 
department teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and support both the 
MFA and Ph.D programs by giving critiques, supervising independent studies, 
mentoring and leading student research projects, and serving on graduate committees. 
Candidate should have a record of excellence in teaching, evidence of grasp of 
academic responsibilities, and demonstrated potential for active university service. 
Rank and salary are commensurate with qualifications and experience based on UC 
pay scales.
