The Division of Communication and Creative Media at Champlain College seeks an Assistant Professor and Program Director of the Game Sound Design major. Game Sound Design is one of six programs housed in the thriving Game Studio portfolio of game-related programs at Champlain College. The expected start date is July 1, 2022.

The successful candidate will teach a wide range of courses related to Game Sound Design in particular and Sound Design in general.  The typical teaching load is four courses per semester.  Our small class sizes optimize instructor-student interaction and encourage hands-on activities that translate theory into practice.  Because the College is entrepreneurial and market-driven, its academic programs respond to industry dynamics.  Consequently, the College particularly values industry and other practical experience for its faculty and students.  As a part of The Game Studio at Champlain College, the successful candidate will need to be highly collegial and collaborative with faculty from other programs.  A track record of multidisciplinary collaboration is highly sought after. 

 


Requirements:

Desired qualifications include professional-level experience in game engine sound and music integration. The successful candidate should also have professional-level experience in FMOD and Pro-Tools or other Industry-standard DAW. A strong interest and/or experience in education/teaching are essential.

The ideal candidate will have a graduate degree in Sound Design, Music Composition, or a related field.  As Champlain College highly values practical experience, consideration will be given to candidates with a bachelor's degree plus significant industry accomplishments as measured by years of experience in the music or game industry.  All candidates must have at least 3 years of professional experience in Sound Design or a closely related industry and be able to demonstrate a commitment to teaching, mentoring, and curriculum development.
