While I really don't post job listings (although maybe that might be a good thing to do in the future for positions having to deal with race and racism and in the Asian American community) I thought I would post this one out:
The University of California, San Diego Department of Communication announces a tenure track position in social, cultural and critical theory and practice of media production at the Assistant Professor level beginning July 1, 2009, pending budget approval. The position includes participation in our interdisciplinary undergraduate and Ph.D. programs.Check more out about the position here.
The department seeks a candidate with a Ph.D. or MFA or equivalent qualifications who can provide an imaginative blend of creative work and scholarly research in new or traditional media with a focus on documentary media or forms that challenge the distinction between fiction and non-fiction. Video, non-fiction multimedia, audio/radio, software-based practices or other media will be considered. We especially encourage candidates who work with Pan Pacific Asian or Asian American issues or topics to apply, though the position is open to candidates working on all areas and topics.
