The American University of Sharjah Performing Arts Program, housed within the College of Arts and Sciences, invites applications for a full-time appointment in Costume Design to begin in the fall of 2017. This faculty member will join a small but growing program, which includes theatre, dance, and music, and has an active production schedule. We seek an artist and educator who will teach specialized courses in costume and makeup design, as well as an introductory course in theatre. Additional responsibilities will include designing and building costumes for 2-3 theatre productions per academic year. Candidates with Scenic Design background as well will receive strong consideration. The successful candidate will be instrumental in contributing to curriculum creation and development for the first academic costume and scenic design courses in the Arabian Peninsula. We are especially interested in candidates who are dedicated to teaching undergraduates in a liberal arts environment, committed to working with ethnically and culturally diverse faculty and students from across the globe, and who will thrive in a small, ambitious collegiate setting. A terminal degree in theatre (MFA Preferred) and professional design experience is a plus. At least 3 years of college or university teaching experience is strongly desired. Applicants must demonstrate the potential for excellence in teaching and scholarship with international students. The new faculty member will contribute to the sustainability, growth, and development of the Performing Arts Program’s artistic goals, and will serve on college and/or university-wide committees. Preferred deadline is October 31, but position is open until filled. Please send a letter of interest, CV, resume, costume design samples, and contact information for 3 references.
