The School of Dance in the College of Fine Arts at the University of Utah invites applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, interdisciplinary contemporary practice hybrid artist/scholar, to begin August 2017.
The School of Dance is looking for a faculty member who bridges and/or fuses two (or more) contemporary movement practices, one of which is rooted in modern/contemporary dance. Other disciplines may include but are not limited to jazz, break, house and hip-hop and other forms from the African diaspora, ballet, physical theater and other dance/movement forms facilitating hybrid possibilities. The ability of this faculty member to research, work, model and think in interdisciplinary modes is important. We see such knowledge and research being introduced in our technique, creative process, and theory courses throughout the curriculum, thereby broadening and enhancing possibilities throughout the School of Dance.
