Artist Program Director
Fordham University is seeking a new Artistic Program Director for its distinguished undergraduate Theatre Program beginning July 2020. The Program is based at Fordham’s Lincoln Center Campus in Manhattan. This is a tenure-track faculty position that will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (or higher, commensurate with experience). The candidate will become a leader, in collaboration with both tenured and non-tenured faculty members as well as production and administrative staff, in the evolution and implementation of a vision for the program that assures its preeminent standing in the field of undergraduate theatre training.
The successful candidate will be a prominent and active theatre artist with proven achievement in their field. They will also have teaching and administrative experience, a proven ability to lead, and a demonstrable commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive learning environment. Having experience with fundraising is also highly desirable. We are particularly interested in someone with an expansive aesthetic, as our curriculum embraces a wide array of approaches, eras, and cultures. As our student body grows increasingly diverse, experience and commitment to teaching and mentoring students from a range of economic, social, and cultural backgrounds is preferred. We also highly value teaching and/or professional experience in traditions outside of Western theatre. An advanced degree in the field is required and/or its professional equivalent.
Please Include (1) a cover letter with qualifications; (2) curriculum vitae; (3) and the names of three references with email and addresses.
Deadline: Review of applications will begin October 16, 2019, and no applications will be accepted after December 16, 2019. For specific questions, please contact the Search Committee Chair, Elizabeth Margid, at email@example.com
