All, My longtime employer, the University of Florida, is looking to hire a maker with a PhD for the program (Film & Media Studies in the English Dept.) that I taught in for 13 years. It’s a great place to be—lots of interesting students, very supportive colleagues, NO WINTER, etc. Not sure how many of you out there have PhD’s, but for those who do, this is a great gig. I’m pasting the full text of the listing below. I don’t know more than is in that posting, so contact Barbara Mennel at the address below for more info. I’d definitely love to see this position filled by someone interesting. The department has a long history of supporting experimental work in both production and theory/history, so I’m hoping this new hire will continue that tradition.
