Detailed Job Description

Applicants for the positions should possess notable, recognized credits in editing. Though credits in film and television are desirable, strong professional credits in other, non-traditional forms of editing, are desired. Teaching experience is preferred. An advanced degree is desirable but not mandatory.

Candidates should have comfort in both traditional and non-traditional forms of editing, be comfortable with emerging technologies, and have a strong sense of story structure with both narrative fiction and non-fiction storytelling techniques. Demonstrated, award-winning expertise is a plus.

Successful candidates will be expected to teach several undergraduate or graduate classes each semester, mentor students, as well as serve on a number of school and university committees. They are also expected to continue to produce work while teaching.

Salary and rank are commensurate with qualifications.
