Job Description

The Hamline University Department of Theatre & Dance invites applications for a tenure-track position in the teaching of acting and directing at the assistant professor level to begin in fall 2018.
The position requires an MFA in actor training and performance, excitement to provide vision and leadership for performance training in a four-member department, and experience approaching actor and director training from a variety of methodologies.
The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong commitment to broad liberal arts and interdisciplinary education, excellent teaching skills, willingness to teach and support diverse students, and the ability to develop a productive research program involving undergraduate researchers.
Candidates should be able to teach courses in acting and directing/devising, script analysis, and direct one mainstage production each year.
Experience applying theatre to social and political issues and concerns is desirable as is interest in collaborative work across the Fine Arts. Hamline faculty currently have a six-course annual teaching load, with a course release in the first year for professional development and semester pre-tenure release pending successful third-year review.

Hamline University is located in the heart of the culturally vibrant Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area, home to a distinctive array of theatre companies and arts organizations. The Department of Theater & Dance ( https://www.hamline.edu/cla/theatre-arts ), within Hamline’s College of Liberal Arts, is firmly committed to translating classroom discoveries into real-world experience. Our classes are small, the feedback is direct, and the learning is hands-on.

The College of Liberal Arts, together with Hamline’s School of Business, serves approximately 2,100 undergraduate students.
The University’s mission is to create a diverse and collaborative community of learners dedicated to the development of students’ knowledge, values, and skills for successful lives of leadership, scholarship, and service. Hamline University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and educator, and is especially interested in faculty candidates whose work and scholarship will enrich diversity and equality on campus.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, a statement of teaching philosophy and three samples of creative work by December 1, 2017, by clicking on the following link:

In addition, candidates will be asked to provide three references during the application process for Hamline to contact for letters of recommendation.
