FACULTY OF FINE ARTS, CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY
Limited Term Appointment in Film Production

Concordia University’s Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in the Faculty of Fine Arts invites
applications for one Limited Term Appointment (LTA) position in Film Production at the rank of
Lecturer or Assistant Professor, effective August 1, 2019 to May 14, 2020.

Position Description
LTA positions are subject to budgetary approval and departmental or unit need. Individuals who
hold a Limited Term Appointment may seek reappointment given continued funding and need as
well as satisfactory job performance. Together, initial LTA appointments and subsequent
appointments may not exceed a total of 36 months or span more than three consecutive years.

Responsibilities
The successful candidate will be expected to teach six undergraduate courses (which may include
multiple sections of the same course) on topics including image, montage, sound, and core
filmmaking practices while supporting student work that covers a broad range of genres and
interests within the context of Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts. The normal distribution of courses
is three per semester during the initial appointment and seven courses per annum, if reappointed.
Responsibilities will also include active involvement in committee and administrative work.

Qualifications
We are seeking candidates who have completed a relevant terminal graduate degree and who
have an established artistic filmmaking and exhibition practice. A knowledge of film theory across
all genres is required. Preferred candidates will have post-secondary teaching experience
specifically in studio-based courses, and in which they have guided students through the creative
process from the concept stage to a finished film project. Specific knowledge of the digital
workflow on Apple computers, including Avid Media Composer and Pro-Tools is
required. Proficiency in post-production workflow management is also required, as is research
expertise in image editing and sound editing. Portfolios must reflect a thorough understanding of
the above competencies. Familiarity with emerging trends in media production and exhibition are
an asset as well as proven ability to work in a team. Although classes are taught in English, fluency
in French would also be considered an asset.
