The two production courses will include one introducing students to personal videos and another related to the applicant's personal practice.

For the Avant-Garde and Experimental Cinema course, the successful applicant will present knowledge of this genre within a lecture and discussion format with up to 50 students delivered from an artist's perspective. This position carries a 3/3 teaching load and a three-year contract.


Applicants must have an MFA or equivalent terminal degree in film and video production or a related field by the time of appointment, as well as a strong dedication to teaching. Interdisciplinary, global, and cross-cultural perspectives are highly encouraged.

Application Instructions:

A complete application package will include a letter of intent; curriculum vitae; links to samples of creative work; one sample syllabus; evidence of teaching experience and success (e.g., student course evaluations); and names and contact information of three referees to http://binghamton.interviewexchange.com/jobofferdetails.jsp?JOBID=158482 .
