    The Department of Theater and Dance at Bowdoin College invites applications for a one-year, full-time, visiting assistant professor of Dance, to begin July 1, 2017. As a collaborative and interdisciplinary department, Theater and Dance is committed to student achievement in the performing arts. As such, we encourage inquiries from candidates who will enrich and contribute to the cultural and ethnic diversity of our department and college. Specifically, we seek applications from those who could teach dance history, introductory dance courses, and an area of studio technique. Experience in ballet, modern, or contemporary preferred, but other areas of expertise will be considered. The teaching load is two courses each semester. The successful candidate will possess effective collaborative skills, interdisciplinary adventurousness, and enthusiasm for teaching, mentoring, and advising a diverse population of students. Terminal degree (M.F.A. or Ph.D.) expected by time of appointment.

Please submit: a letter of application that describes a research agenda and approach to teaching dance in a liberal arts setting; curriculum vitae; writing sample; and the names and contact information for three references who have agreed to provide letters of recommendation upon request.
