Professor/Associate Professor in Film (A246-09Z)
School of English, Film, Theatre and Media Studies, Faculty of Humanities
and Social Sciences, Victoria University of Wellington

Location            Kelburn Campus, Wellington
Term of Contract    Permanent
Closing Date        24 September 2009

Victoria University of Wellington is committed to the future development of
its creative disciplines. This exciting new role is regarded as key to
realising a vision for the study of film that is consistent with it being
situated in the creative capital city, Wellington, and that builds on the
Film Programme’s existing strengths in integrating practical creative work
with theoretical study.  The Professor/Associate Professor will provide
leadership in teaching and research and will play a key role in the
establishment of an exciting new venture – a proposed Centre for New Cinema
and an interdisciplinary Master of Cinema Arts degree.

The city of Wellington – the arts centre of New Zealand – is home to a
thriving theatre scene, Toi Whakaari the New Zealand Drama School, the
International Institute of Modern Letters, the National Library, the New
Zealand Film Archive, Te Papa the National Museum, Weta Digital, Park Road
Post, and the New Zealand Film Commission. Victoria University’s specialist
film programme offers a wide range of innovative theoretical and practical
courses. The University seeks to build on these strengths through the
creation of this new senior position.

The successful candidate will be expected to have a PhD in film studies or a
related discipline, substantial tertiary teaching experience, and an
established international research profile. Applications are also welcome
from appropriately qualified people with film-making experience. The ability
to build positive working relationships within the discipline, to work in an
interdisciplinary context, and to develop productive relationships with
government and industry partners is also important.
