The S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor of Screenwriting in the Television, Radio & Film (TRF) department to start Fall 2021.

The successful candidate will focus mainly on teaching television writing courses and therefore must have significant professional experience and be recognized nationally and/or internationally for their narrative work, ideally in television screenwriting. Experience in additional areas of entertainment storytelling-such as other narrative genres, producing, development, etc.-is a plus, as most of Newhouse faculty teach at least one course outside of their specialties. An MFA is preferred and production experience is a plus.

For a full description and online application instructions, go to, Job # 075521. A cover letter, résumé or curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy statement of no more than 500 words and a list of four references with names, email addresses and phone numbers must be included in the online application. While priority consideration is given to applications received by February 15, 2021, the department will consider applications until the position is filled.

Syracuse University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer with a strong commitment to equality of opportunity and a diverse work force. Women, military veterans, individuals with disabilities and members of other traditionally underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
