Hampden-Sydney College invites applications for a one-year sabbatical replacement in theatre in the Fine Arts Department for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The Department offers a major and minor in theatre as well as courses for the general student population as part of a Liberal Arts education.  We seek a professionally experienced colleague who is excited to collaborate in this vibrant community of artistic activity.

Hampden-Sydney College is a selective liberal arts institution enrolling over 1000 students. Founded in 1775, it has been in continuous operation for 243 years, making it the tenth oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. Our beautiful 1300-acre campus includes hiking/biking trails, a Frisbee golf course and an adventure high ropes and zip line course. The campus is less than 7 miles from downtown Farmville, which includes an historic walkable downtown with a local brewery, art and craft galleries, restaurants, and a rails-to-trail state park that extends over 15 miles in each direction from town. Five additional state parks are located within 30 miles and offer camping, fishing, hiking, boating, swimming, and horseback riding. Farmville is located 65 miles west of Richmond, 50 miles east of Lynchburg, and 75 miles south of Charlottesville, providing abundant opportunities for cultural and artistic resources, field trips, and employment opportunities for partners.

Hampden-Sydney is one of four liberal arts colleges in the United States dedicated to the education of men, and our mission is to educate "good men and good citizens in an atmosphere of sound learning." As a community, we are dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse faculty committed to working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourage applications from women and minoritized groups. Hampden-Sydney College values diversity, prohibits discrimination, and is committed to equal opportunity for all employees and applicants for employment.

This appointment requires a terminal degree in theatre, evidence of successful teaching at the college level, and a promising program of professional development and scholarship.

Responsibilities include teaching introductory classes, acting, and one class within the applicant’s area of expertise.  Course rotation will include directing one main stage production and design support for one main stage production.

Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, and three letters of recommendation via Interfolio. Applications will be accepted until April 15, 2021.  Candidates may subsequently be asked to provide official college and graduate school transcripts.
