ACADEMIC FILM PROGRAMMER AND LECTURER

Bucknell University’s English Department invites applications for an Academic Film Programmer and Lecturer.  Applicants must have significant film programming and/or curatorial experience with a preference given to candidates with a MA, MFA, or Ph.D. in Film Studies (or similar field) and teaching experience.

The University has recently acquired and renovated the Campus Theatre, a beautifully restored single-screen art deco cinema in downtown Lewisburg, and has engaged a local non-profit group to run the Theatre’s programming and operations.  The Campus Theatre has quickly become a cultural center serving both Bucknell and the greater Lewisburg region.  Candidates will oversee the University’s academic programming which takes place within the Campus Theatre.  The theatre supports 35mm film, DCP, Blu-ray, and a variety of other moving image formats.  The facility screens over 150 different Bucknell related films per year and the candidate would work with faculty, students, and the Campus Theatre staff on selecting academic films, working with film distributors, and then promoting screenings and events.  Strong preference will be given to candidates with grant writing skills and working relationships with film distributors, film archives, festival programmers, and emerging film and media makers.

This position will be part of the Bucknell’s English Department’s interdisciplinary Concentration in Film/Media Studies.  The Concentration emphasizes traditional skills in film/media history, theory, and aesthetics while challenging students to produce new media work that reflects their learning.  This position will include teaching two courses in the Concentration, and demonstrate a commitment to integrating diversity issues into the curriculum.

Complete dossier should include a cover letter explaining the candidate’s curatorial approach, three letters of reference, samples of recent curatorial work, and evidence of potential for teaching excellence (e.g. syllabi and teaching evaluations).  To apply, please submit cover letter and CV to www.bucknell.edu/jobs.  Send letters of recommendation, curatorial work, syllabi, teaching evaluations, and any additional materials to Eric Faden, Film and Media Studies Search Committee, Department of English, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA 17837 (570-577-1553 or electronically to efaden[a]bucknell.edu).  Bucknell University values a diverse college community and is committed to excellence through diversity in its faculty, staff, and students.
