The University of St Andrews is seeking to enhance its research strength in Film Studies by appointing a new (full) Professor in Film Studies. We would welcome applications from candidates whose research could link with and add to existing strengths in the department (global screen cultures, new film and media histories & historiographies, audio-visual environments, non-fiction media). Our primary objective is to appoint an outstanding candidate who has experience of leading large research projects alongside a commitment to attaching students at all levels, strengthening research collaborations inside and outside the department, and developing public engagement projects. We are particularly interested in applications from those working in the Global South.

This role involves producing excellent research-led teaching and convening a range of modules at the undergraduate and master’s levels, supervising both undergraduate and postgraduate students, and contributing to the administration of teaching, research, and public engagement in the department.

For informal enquiries, we encourage those considering applying to contact the Head of Department, Dr Leshu Torchin ( ) or the Head of the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies, Professor Mark Harris ( ).

Closing Date for Applications: 7th June

Interview Date: 6th July

Start Date: 5 January 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter
