Teaching experience at the college level is highly desired.

Both appointing units expect that critical studies candidates will demonstrate expertise in one or more of the following areas: digital moving image art, new media theory, media archaeology, digital and online culture, transmedia studies.

The ideal candidate possesses strong conceptual, theoretical and technical understandings of the moving image arts and of media production generally.

Teaching responsibilities will include course development, teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, serving on graduate thesis and dissertation committees, and participating in university service.
