Job Description: The Syracuse University Department of Drama seeks to hire two Tenure-Track Assistant Professors for its Theater Design and Technology Program. Primary expertise should be in costume design and/or scenic design, with additional expertise in at least one other area of theatrical design (lights, projections, sound, etc.). Design experience/expertise in other areas (film, television, events, concerts, etc.) is highly desirable. The department seeks candidates whose personal and professional experience, teaching, and creative activity contribute to the advancement of equity, aesthetic diversity, and cultural wealth. Successful candidates will enhance the department's capacity both to honor and to cultivate the contributions of those communities that have historically been under-represented or underserved in theater training and/or the theatrical profession. The department is committed to the development of a curriculum that responds effectively to the artistic needs of an ever-changing profession, and that prepares a diverse array of students to assume leadership roles. The positions will teach a variety of courses as assigned by the Chair and based upon expertise. Additionally, the positions will serve as designers for department productions and as both academic and design advisors to student designers in all areas of theatrical design (sets, lights, costumes), guiding them in the creation and realization of professional quality theatrical designs in accordance with emerging best professional practices. Continued professional creative work and/or research, as well as service and committee work for the Department, the College of Visual and Performing Arts, and the University is expected. These positions begin in Fall 2021.
