MacEwan University’s Arts and Cultural Management (AACM) Department invites applications for a full-time tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, commencing July 1, 2018. AACM focuses on preparing individuals for careers working with a wide variety of cultural and nonprofit arts organizations. In addition to their academic studies, students develop skills through experiential learning, including work integrated learning field placements, special projects with organizations in the field and international exchanges. One of the first arts management programs in Canada, MacEwan’s Arts and Cultural Management program attracts students from across the country in both its classroom and online cohorts.
Candidates will hold a minimum of a Master’s degree in arts management or a related discipline and will demonstrate experience in and a commitment to undergraduate teaching with an ongoing interest in research in the discipline. In addition to experience in arts management, teaching experience in a post-secondary environment and strong interpersonal and communication skills, the successful candidate will have a commitment to the concept of interdisciplinarity in the arts. Because this new faculty position will play an important role in the development of a BFA in Arts Management, as well as the future Interdisciplinary degree major, the ability to form and lead collaborative teams, a commitment to innovative pedagogy (including online learning) and experience with curriculum development is also desirable.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching dossier (including recent teaching evaluations), statement of research interests and a sample of scholarly work along with the names and contact information of three referees (along with the competition number). Review of applications will commence April 15, 2018 and the competition will remain open until the successful candidate has been found.
