Subject: Reed Visiting Appointment
Visiting Appointment in Theatre (Directing, Theatre History)
The Reed College Theatre Department invites applications for a one year visiting assistant professor appointment in theatre, to start immediately, with an emphasis in directing and theatre history. Responsibilities will include teaching five courses (Directing I, Theatre History I, Applied Collaboration Techniques, and two electives) as well as advising senior theses. We are especially interested in scholar/practitioners who are able to teach broadly within the discipline, who are committed to teaching undergraduates in a liberal arts environment, and who will maintain an active scholarly and/or professional practice outside of Reed. Expertise in pre-twentieth century theatre history and/or non-western theatre is of particular interest. A PhD, DFA or equivalent degree is preferred, and successful college level teaching and professional experience required. Advanced graduate students who are ABD will be considered.
Reed College is a small, distinguished liberal arts institution committed to excellence in teaching and scholarship. Reed students are known for their outstanding intellectual engagement and creativity. Reed’s new Performing Arts Building, opened in Fall 2013, provides a vital facility for new initiatives in the performing arts and for fostering interdisciplinary opportunities across the college. Information about the department is available at http://academic.reed.edu/theatre/.
Deadline is rolling and consideration of applications will begin immediately.
