Job (Edmonton): Assistant Professor, Theatre Arts – MacEwan University

Theatre Arts, MacEwan UniversityTheatre Artist & Educator for Dance/Movement Studies & Actor Training

MacEwan University’s Theatre Department is seeking a theatre artist and educator specializing in both Dance/Movement Studies and Actor training to fill a new full-time continuing position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate will have a diverse skill-set that draws primarily from their area of specialization, as well as the ability to teach additional courses involving acting, interdisciplinary collaboration and/or directing. Because the successful applicant for this position will play a key role in planned changes to the program curriculum, the ability to work effectively in a student-centered, collegial environment is considered very important and a vision towards developing new approaches to undergraduate music theatre education will be seen as an asset.

The Theatre Department is situated within the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications of MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. Beginning in September 2017, the Department will be housed at the new, state-of-the-art Centre for the Arts and Culture as part of MacEwan University’s main campus in downtown Edmonton. MacEwan Theatre Arts has been part of the city’s vibrant arts community since the early 1970s, and its two-year Diploma builds on its reputation as one of the finest post-secondary music theatre training programs in Canada.

The preferred candidate will hold a minimum of an MFA in theatre, must have teaching experience at the post-secondary level and a strong record of professional work in their area of expertise.

Applicants will submit a letter of interest, current Curriculum Vitae, portfolio/or publications, and the names of three professional references. In addition, applicants will submit a teaching dossier that includes a teaching philosophy; a record of courses taught and course evaluations.

Review of applications will commence March 1, 2017 and the competition will remain open until the successful candidate has been found.
