FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

The Queens College Department of Drama, Theatre and Dance seeks a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Theatre and Performance Studies, starting fall 2019. Teaching duties will include undergraduate courses in dramatic literature and introduction to theatre.

The successful candidate will also work as a dramaturg with undergraduate students, and is expected to develop courses in the candidate’s area of specialization. The candidate is expected to remain actively engaged in research/scholarship, mentor and advise undergraduate students, and serve on departmental and college-wide committees.

Often referred to as "the jewel of the CUNY system", Queens College sits on 80 acres of land and is a place of contrast: an urban school in a suburban setting. It is a place where a large and diverse student body receives personalized attention. This formula has made us one of New York's premier educational institutions.

With a mission to prepare students to become leading citizens of an increasingly global society, we offer a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences under the guidance of a faculty dedicated to both teaching and research. Our liberal arts, science and pre-professional programs earn us high rankings in prestigious college guides such as The Princeton Review America's Best Value colleges. Our students graduate with the ability to think critically, address complex problems, explore various cultures, use modern technologies and information resources, and have won prominence in nearly every field.

QUALIFICATIONS

Ph.D. in hand by 1 June '19; college teaching experience; and evidence of scholarly promise in dramatic literature, theory and criticism.

Preferred areas of research and teaching expertise include Performance Studies, African-American, African, Afro-Caribbean or Latinx Theatre.

Also required is the ability to teach successfully, demonstrated scholarship or achievement, and ability to cooperate with others for the good of the institution.

COMPENSATION

Salary range: $63,000 - $75,000

CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs. We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development.
