The Program in Film and Media Studies (FMS) at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for the position of full-time Lecturer in film, video, and media production, with the anticipated start date of July 1, 2022.

The FMS Program balances a rigorous education in film and media history, aesthetics, philosophy, and theory with a range of approaches to creative practice ranging from 16mm filmmaking to digital video, stop-motion animation and post-production. It produces thoughtful graduates conversant in multiple areas of study and craft. Our faculty, like our students, are thinkers and creators of work that engages both theory and practice.

The committee welcomes a diverse array of candidates from a range of backgrounds in filmmaking and teaching experience, including: producing/directing, writing/directing; editing; animation; documentary filmmaking; and cinematography/videography. Candidates with backgrounds in one or more of these areas are encouraged to apply.

The outstanding candidate will possess a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring undergraduates in a Bachelor of Arts program; a desire to create original course offerings to enhance the existing curriculum; and a passion for helping students navigate long and short form film and media projects of varying levels of complexity, challenging them as they discover their practice as audio-visual artists.

The Program is committed to conducting a broad and inclusive search for a candidate who, through artistic practice, teaching, and service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.

Note: The Department/Program designation above, listed as “JHU-MICA Film Centre," reflects the sharing of space and equipment with the Maryland Institute College of Art’s (MICA) film department, not a formal academic affiliation.

Filmmaking experience of one kind or another is essential. An M.F.A is preferred, as is some teaching experience at the university level. Experience with 16mm cameras is a plus.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a description of produced work and teaching activity, and three letters of reference. Cover letter should, among other things, address how applicant’s artistic and teaching practice inform each other. All application material should be submitted online via Interfolio. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2021, and will continue until position is filled.
