School of Advanced Studies, University of Tyumen, Siberia -- Professors (open rank) in Film and Media Studies 

DEADLINE: December 10 https://sas.utmn.ru/en/about-en/

​​​​​​ The School of Advanced Studies (SAS) is recruiting several professors in Film and Media Studies, as well as other disciplines. Our progressive and continually evolving Film and Media Studies B.A. Program strives to combine theory and production not only within the Program’s curriculum, but also within the classroom environment. We believe students intending either scholarly or creative paths are more productively served by integrating learning environments along both trajectories, and this, of course, compels our professors to transcend traditional boundaries implied by doctoral and M.F.A. curricula, for example. Our M.A. Program in Digital Cultures and Media Production also pursues this teaching philosophy, by employing media theory to potentiate narrative and stylistic choices across all emerging forms of motion picture and visual media products. 

SAS is a new and rapidly growing institution at the University of Tyumen (Siberia), supported by the Russian academic excellence project. SAS is an interdisciplinary research center and educational institution conferring both B.A. and M.A. degrees. SAS operates in English and currently employs twenty-five faculty from eleven countries, most of whom received their Ph.D.s from globally top-ranked universities. 

A distinctive feature of SAS is the organization of research around multidisciplinary team projects. We congregate scholars committed to both research and teaching, who believe in the value of complex conversation across disciplinary boundaries. 

Faculty positions at SAS provide a rare chance to develop one’s own research in the framework of a multidisciplinary team project, as well as the opportunity to contribute to designing an innovative new institution of higher education. While scholars wishing to pursue all kinds of topics are encouraged to apply, we are particularly interested in the following research directions, within which more concrete team projects can be designed: 

1) Implications of changing economic dominance of Global South vs. Global North, East vs. West, etc. for the economic, technological, social, and national divides in the multipolar world. The possibilities of the creation of communities across these divides, also by means of storytelling and visual media. 

2) Ethical and societal implications of genome technologies and neuroscience, such as genetic engineering, resurrection of extinct species, and direct manipulation of cognition and emotion in the brain, also via new media. 

3) The challenges posed by AI decision-making, machine creativity, and technological objects becoming social subjects. 

4) Multilevel evolution and the possibilities and limitations of applying evolutionary theory and ‘the logic of chance’ to social, economic, and cultural structures in their historical development. 

5) Arctic cities in the changing environment, ‘glocalization’ of the impact of environmental and technological changes on the economy, everyday urban experience, culture, and society. 

According to SAS’s stipulation to be part of an international network of multi- and interdisciplinary teaching and research centers, an international search committee will supervise the hiring process: 

- Alexei Grinbaum, Institut de Recherche sur les Lois Fondamentales de l'Univers, CEA/Saclay (philosophy of science), 

- Arne Dietrich, American University of Beirut (psychology and neuroscience), 

- Barbara Igel, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO (economics), 

- James P. Gibbs, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (environmental studies), 

- Svetlana Borinskaya, Vavilov Institute of General Genetics, RAS (genetics, evolutionary biology), 

- Kevin M. F. Platt, University of Pennsylvania (cultural history), 

- Lev Manovich, City University of New York (media studies), 

- Machiel Keestra, Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Amsterdam (interdisciplinary studies), 

- Victor Vakhshtain, The Moscow School of Social and Economic Sciences (sociology). 

Preliminary interviews will be conducted via Skype. Shortlisted candidates will have the opportunity to team up through virtual contact in order to formulate drafts of multidisciplinary team projects. They will continue working on theses project proposals during the project design session to be held at SAS in March of 2020, where these projects will be assessed by the committee. 

Successful candidates are typically offered three-year, renewable contracts to pursue these projects and teach in the SAS B.A. Major in Film and Media Studies and M.A. Program in Digital Cultures and Media Production. Most contracts are 45% research, 45% teaching, and 10% administrative work. SAS faculty receive competitive salaries (commensurate with experience), health insurance, and research travel funding. More information on the culturally vibrant city of Tyumen is available here. 

Please send a CV, three letters of reference (to be sent separately), and a cover letter describing your academic background and the research project(s) you intend to pursue to: sas@utmn.ru by December 10, 2019. Review of applications will begin immediately.
