The School of Cinema at San Francisco State University invites applications for part-time lecturer positions (non-tenure track) in cinema for the coming academic term.

The School of Cinema at San Francisco State University was founded over 50 years ago. Fiercely independent from its inception, the School of Cinema celebrates independent voices and groundbreaking scholarship. The School of Cinema champions progressive values and fosters an inclusive experience for all—from staff and Lecturers, to Faculty and students. We promote interdisciplinary values, and thus, while many of our students stress creative endeavors, students are required to take challenging academic courses as well. Whether engaged in a hands-on activity or project, or conducting research our instructors are encouraged to work closely with our students. Our instructors are also viewed as critical conduits through which our students can engage with the wider community. We encourage intellectual and creative collaborations within the School, as well as across the profession, and also support applications for internal and external funding to support research and/or creative productivity.

See the SFSU Academic Calendar for the start date and when the exam period ends:
