The Department of English and Media Studies at Bentley University invites applications for a tenure-track writer engaged in any of the following creative practices: digital, transmedia, or multi-platform storytelling; writing for interactive media; game writing and/or narrative design; electronic literature; graphic storytelling; or experimental journalism. We welcome candidates whose work traverses platforms and straddles both legacy and new media in form, expression, and/or distribution. We seek a candidate with strong records of professional achievement, excellence in undergraduate teaching, and service. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active record of juried creative work or be published in high-impact venues. Joining a department that includes creative writers, media practitioners, literary scholars, and cinema and media studies scholars, the candidate will contribute to the development of the department's major in Media and Culture. Teaching load, salary and benefits are competitive. Bentley's pleasant campus is located in a Boston suburb, close to Cambridge. Minimum qualifications: Ph.D., MFA, or equivalent record of experience. Prior teaching experience at the college level is required. Applicants without the terminal degree must have degree in hand on or before July 1, 2014.

For best consideration, please apply online at https://jobs.bentley.edu/ by November 1, 2013. Please upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, artist/creative statement (use the link for Additional Document 1), and statement of teaching philosophy. Samples of your work as links or attachments may be submitted online (use Additional Document 2 and/or Additional Document 3). Samples of work on DVD or other formats may be mailed to Dr. Samir Dayal, Search Committee Chair, Bentley University, 175 Forest St., Waltham, MA 02452. You will be prompted to enter information for three references who will be contacted once the candidate pool has been narrowed.
