SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY Assistant Professor, Acting (Tenure Track)

The Syracuse University Department of Drama seeks to hire an Assistant Professor of Acting for a tenure-track position beginning in Fall 2020. The Department offers conservatory-style training and an unparalleled level of integration with a professional theater: Syracuse Stage, the leading professional theater company of central New York, and is consistently ranked among the top programs in the country. The position will teach all levels of acting in a Stanislavski-based curriculum; the position will also direct productions for the department. Additional expertise in related areas (e.g., non-Stanislavski-based approaches to performance; movement for actors; voice for actors; theater history; dramatic literature) is desirable, but not required. Successful candidates will demonstrate the ability and willingness to collaborate with Acting Program faculty in the development of a curriculum that builds on a strong existing foundation and responds effectively to the artistic needs of an ever-changing profession. The department is interested in candidates whose teaching, creative activity, and/or professional experience actively contribute to the understanding of diversity and equity, or which addresses questions of interest to historically under-represented or underserved communities. 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.
