University of California, San Diego -- Department of Visual Arts
Assistant Professor, to begin July 1, 2014.

The Department of Visual Arts within the Division of Arts and Humanities 
at UC San Diego (visarts.ucsd.edu) is committed to academic excellence 
and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. The 
Department seeks a film and media historian or theorist. All research 
specializations will be considered but we particularly welcome a 
demonstrated interest in the relation of film and media to other art 
practices of the 20th and 21st centuries, and/or an engagement with the 
contemporary new media landscape. The candidate will be responsible for 
developing and teaching large undergraduate lecture courses on the 
history of film and media, undergraduate classes for majors in art 
history and media studies, and graduate seminars for an innovative Ph.D 
program in art history which includes a concentration in art practice 
and also enrolls MFA students in its courses. Faculty in all areas of 
our department are expected to serve both the MFA and Ph.D programs by 
giving critiques, supervising independent studies, and serving on 
graduate committees. The department offers B.A., M.F.A., and Ph.D 
degrees. Teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels is expected. 
Candidate should have a record of excellence in research and teaching. 
Ph.D. (or close to completion) required.
We seek candidates whose research, teaching, or service have prepared 
them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in 
higher education. Applicants are asked to summarize their past or 
potential contributions to diversity in their personal statement. 
Contributions might include such items as providing leadership in 
teaching, mentoring, research or service towards building an equitable 
and diverse scholarly environment and/or increasing access or 
participation of individuals from historically underrepresented groups.

Rank and salary commensurate with qualifications and experience based on 
UC pay scales.
