    The position is focused in Critical Dance Studies. The successful candidate would teach five courses over two semesters, including introductory dance history, a junior dance studies seminar, and three additional dance studies, studio, and/or hybrid courses in the candidate’s area(s) of expertise. We especially encourage candidates who have expertise both within and beyond the Euro-American concert tradition.

Above all, we seek candidates with a strong commitment to teaching excellence at the undergraduate level, a lively intellectual and artistic engagement with the field, and an interest in contributing to a vital and diverse curriculum. Ideal candidates will have Ph.D. in hand by the start of the appointment. Information on Reed's Dance Department is available at http://academic.reed.edu/dance/ 

    Reed College is a small, distinguished liberal arts institution committed to excellence in teaching and scholarship. Reed students are known for their outstanding intellectual engagement and creativity. Reed’s new Performing Arts Building, opened in Fall 2013, provides a vital facility for new initiatives in the performing arts and for fostering interdisciplinary opportunities. Having newly instituted a major in Dance in Fall 2016, the program has begun to accrue a cohort of serious dance students. Portland, Oregon has a thriving artistic community, numerous dance companies, a major dance presenting organization and an international performing arts festival.

    Reed College is a community that believes cultural diversity is essential to the excellence of our academic program. In your cover letter, please include a description of how you would engage and sustain the commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in Reed College's diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity/).

    Please send a cover letter, CV, writing sample (article or chapter length), sample syllabus that you feel is representative of your teaching, sample of creative work if relevant, and three letters of recommendation to http://apply.interfolio.com/47105. These materials may include links to works online. Review of applications will begin February 15, 2018. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
