The Program in Film and Media Studies (FMS) at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for the position of full-time Lecturer in film, video, and media production, with the anticipated start date of July 1, 2023. 


The FMS Program balances a rigorous education in production—from 16mm filmmaking and digital video to stop-motion animation and post-production—with film and media history, aesthetics, philosophy, and theory, as well as screenwriting. It produces thoughtful graduates conversant in multiple areas of craft and study, the majority of whom pursue careers in film and media. Our faculty, like our students, are thinkers and creators of work that engages both practice and theory, and our program is positioned for a dynamic period of growth and development.


The committee welcomes candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds in filmmaking and teaching experience, including: narrative, documentary, or experimental filmmaking, with a focus on producing, directing, screenwriting, television writing, cinematography, or editing. Candidates across a variety of career stages, with both independent and mainstream filmmaking backgrounds in one or more of these areas, are encouraged to apply.


The outstanding candidate will possess a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring undergraduates; a passion for helping students navigate film and media projects of varying lengths and levels of complexity; and a desire to create original course offerings to enhance the existing curriculum.


The Program is committed to conducting a broad and inclusive search for a candidate who, through artistic practice, teaching, and service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community at Johns Hopkins University.

Filmmaking experience is essential. An M.F.A is a plus but not essential, as is some teaching experience at the university level.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a description of produced work and teaching activity, and three letters of reference. Cover letter should address how applicant imagines contributing to the FMS Program specifically, as well as how the applicant’s artistic and teaching practice inform each other. All application material should be submitted online via Interfolio. Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2022, and will continue until position is filled.
