Sarah Lawrence College, a coeducational liberal arts college located 30 minutes north of Manhattan, seeks candidates for a full-time, semester-long guest position in Film Studies in the fall of 2014.
Candidates should have a PhD or be ABD in Film Studies or a related field, and have some teaching experience. If ABD, candidates should be well into work on their dissertations. We also welcome applications from senior faculty who would like to spend a semester teaching in close proximity to New York City. The successful candidate will teach two courses: a lecture that introduces students to a topic in Film Studies through a broad overview, such as a national or regional cinema, an important period in film’s history, or a major form, style, or trend; and a seminar that is more narrowly focused and studies a topic in depth. This may, but need not be, an innovative topic not usually taught in Film Studies or related fields.
Application materials must include: cover letter; CV; two sample syllabi for the courses candidates propose to teach and a writing sample. PLEASE ALSO ARRANGE FOR 3 LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION TO BE SENT (WITH FILM STUDIES SEARCH in the subject line) to Rosemary Weeks email@example.com . The deadline for applications is Monday April 7, 2014; the review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To apply for the position please go to: https://slc.simplehire.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=50693 .
