    ASSISTANT PROFESSOR JOB OPENING in DANCE at UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA ASHEVILLE

    The University of North Carolina Asheville seeks an experienced teacher and scholar in dance for a full-time tenure track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor.  The candidate must have a terminal degree, either an MFA in Dance or a PhD in Dance Studies, Cultural Studies, Performance Studies, or a related field, at time of appointment.  Candidates with a background in cultural studies or ethnomusicology are particularly encouraged to apply.  The successful candidate will have substantive experience as a dancer in addition to academic credentials.  The department or program of appointment will depend on the academic background and interests of the hire.

     

    This faculty member would be expected to teach courses in dance history, composition, and at least one formal dance technique (either Western or non-Western), as well as courses which integrate the study of dance and movement with other disciplines, particularly Drama, Performance Studies, and Cultural Studies (Africana Studies, Asian Studies, and others).  The candidate would be expected to contribute to courses in these departments and programs as well as in interdisciplinary programs, such as Arts and Ideas and Humanities.

     

    UNC Asheville has offered courses in Dance for many years, with a minor in Dance in place since 2000, relying on non-tenured faculty.  With this position, we wish to more closely link dance to other academic disciplines, both in the performing arts and in non-performative areas of study.  We are therefore seeking a candidate who is able to articulate a strategic vision of the ways in which the study of dance can be integrated with other departments and programs in the university in both curriculum and programming. 

     

    UNC Asheville has been a national leader in undergraduate research for almost 30 years; over 60% of our students graduate each year having been involved in this important learning experience.  The University fully embraces the idea of mentored undergraduate research as the highest form of teaching, and the institution values success in this facet of a faculty member’s work. In addition to having a passion for undergraduate teaching, research, and mentorship, the UNC Asheville faculty is committed to disciplinary teaching through an inter- and multi-disciplinary lens and providing a premier liberal arts education.  Faculty members teach across the Liberal Arts Core (LAC) program, our required interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum.  UNC Asheville is committed to promoting diversity and a work environment that encourages knowledge of, respect for, and the ability to engage with those of other cultures or backgrounds.  Faculty members across campus are expected to lead the institution’s efforts in promoting diversity and inclusion in the areas of pedagogy, programming, and service activity.

     

    Applications for this position should be submitted electronically at https://jobs.unca.edu.  Complete applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts.  The applicant will request three letters of reference to be sent separately that address the candidate’s writing and interpersonal skills and ability to teach and mentor undergraduate students.  Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2014 and will continue until the position is filled.  Inquiries may be directed to Dr. Gwen Ashburn (gashburn@unca.edu), Dean of Humanities.

     

    UNC Asheville is committed to equality and diversity of educational experiences for our students.  Qualified individuals are encouraged to apply regardless of socio-economic status, gender expression, gender and sexual identity, culture, or ideological beliefs.  UNC Asheville is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and will not discriminate against students on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, sex, disability, political affiliation, protected veteran status, genetic information, or any other legally protected status with respect to all terms, conditions, and privileges of university-sponsored activities, employment, and the use of university facilities.
