Position Details

Wesleyan University’s Department of Film Studies invites applications for a one year full-time Visiting Assistant Professor specializing in film production and studio management beginning September 1, 2022. The teaching load is 2/2 with laboratory responsibilities each semester. Primary responsibilities include supervision of production spaces, student training, and advising senior thesis projects. This also involves helping to design, implement, and refine processes that relate to production spaces and their use.

Wesleyan’s program is solidly grounded in the integration of production and critical studies, and applicants must be committed to teaching film and video production within the context of film as an academic discipline. Willingness to relocate to the Middletown, Connecticut area is important.
Wesleyan is a highly selective liberal arts college, with a strong and diverse undergraduate student body, that values both scholarship and teaching very highly.
