The Department of Film and Media at Emory University in Atlanta, GA invites applications for a Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Film and Media Production, with a specialty in Post-Production. Appointment begins in August 2024. The successful applicant will join a growing, dynamic undergraduate program in a Tier 1 research university located in Atlanta, which has been ranked the third largest center for the creation of feature films and television in the United States.
The successful candidate must have an MFA in Film/Media production in some aspect of Post-Production (which could include editing, sound design/mixing, and/or color correction), a commitment to diversity, and preferably at least 2 years of undergraduate teaching experience. In addition to maintaining an active creative/research agenda and participating in service to the department, the candidate will be expected to teach classes in our core filmmaking curriculum as well as add new classes on Post-Production for narrative, documentary, and new media.
