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.
