acting faculty position


The Department of Performing Arts at Southern Oregon University invites applications for a full-time, nine month, tenure-track position in the Theatre Arts program beginning in September of 2010. This is an undergraduate program of over 230 majors, offering BA, BS & BFA degree options. As a key member of a strong performance faculty, the prime responsibilities for this position would encompass teaching the core acting curriculum in the pre-professional acting program. Expertise in and an ability to teach additional specialized acting courses such as Shakespeare, period styles, voice & stage speech, playwriting, clowning or other areas of specialization are also desired. All teaching in the department is focused on a traditional liberal arts undergraduate education as a central tenet of the University’s core mission. Non-teaching responsibilities will include participating in curricular development, departmental and university committees, as well as possibly directing in the department’s production program. This is an opportunity to join a dedicated faculty, working in a well-regarded theatre program that is a dynamic part of a collaborative, arts-oriented community, which includes the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. A terminal degree (MFA) is required along with significant professional and academic teaching experience. Salary is commensurate with position, rank and responsibilities. All applications must be received by January 4, 2010 to receive priority consideration. Late applications may be considered, but only at the discretion of the committee. The committee will begin reviewing applications as they are received. Send a letter of application, vita, a statement of teaching philosophy and the contact information of three professional references to: Professor Maggie McClellan, Chair of Search Committee, Department of Performing Arts – Theatre, Southern Oregon University, Ashland, OR 97520.
