The Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of California, Davis, invites applications for the position of full-time Technical Theatre and Design Generalist at the level of Assistant Professor of Teaching (tenure track), beginning on July 1, 2023.

The tenure-track Professor of Teaching positions at the University of California are designed to support our campuses’ academic mission by emphasizing excellence in undergraduate education. Traditional tenure track positions primarily emphasize professional contribution (e.g., research or creative works) while professors of teaching are expected to primarily support the teaching mission. As members of the Academic Senate, professors of teaching are also expected to serve on departmental and campus committees and to continue developing a national and international profile of professional accomplishments.

Numbering approximately 35,000 students, the community at UC Davis represents the expansive diversity of the state of California. We are seeking applicants who are excellent teachers, committed to collaboration, and whose is committed to undergraduate theatre education in an liberal arts setting. We are especially interested in candidates who have engaged in advance training in theatrical safety, consent, boundary, and diversity practices.

The ideal candidate will have a master’s or doctoral degree in technical theatre, or in a related field, or have equivalent experience.
