Full-Time Job Assistant Professor of Scenic Design
The Department of Theatre at Albion College invites applications for a full time tenure-track Assistant Professor of Scenic Design for our undergraduate BA Theatre program, beginning August 2018.
The ideal candidate will have an MFA in design and a significant professional resume and/or collegiate teaching experience.
We seek a colleague who is a teaching artist in the purest sense committed to teaching in a liberal arts college with a diverse student body. He or she will be equal parts creator and mentor: someone with the skill set and versatility of a theatre generalist, filtered through the lens of a designer.
This is an opportunity to be a core creative faculty member in a rapidly growing department. Candidates will be expected to teach a 3/3 load in subjects such as Basic Design Theory, Introductory Scenic Design, Scenic Painting, Props Construction, Introduction to Theatre, or other areas of expertise.
Design responsibilities include four main-stage productions per academic year (two proscenium and two black box).
Course releases will be granted for design work.
Candidates may also contribute occasional interdisciplinary classes to the wider college community.
