Assistant Professor, Virtual Production

Website University of Central Flordia

The Film and Media Production Management programs at the University of Central Florida (UCF) invite applications for a full-time, nine-month, tenure-earning assistant professor position, anticipated to begin in August 2024.


We seek scholars or practitioners of film, television, visual effects, or related disciplines whose work engages social, creative, or discipline-relevant issues and encourages and challenges students to increase critical fluency in various film and media forms.  Candidates must show strong potential for a sustained scholarship or creative production with a demonstrated record of publications or creative work at the regional or national levels. This position requires the ability to teach multidisciplinary, hands-on production skills. Applicants whose professional experience is limited to screenwriting or producing will not be considered.


The ideal candidate will have both a research interest and professional experience making creative work in a virtual production environment. We are looking for media makers experienced in both the industrial and independent budget paradigms and who have directed a variety of creative projects, including films, studio television programs, sports broadcasts, music videos, and commercials. Candidates must be able to work with our undergraduate and graduate students on their post-production processes involving both conventional nonlinear editing and virtual production/visual effects.


The ideal candidate will show potential to teach graduate courses by providing evidence of experience in having previously taught graduate courses, or specialized or upper-level undergraduate courses.  Candidates should have strong communication skills and experience in collaborating on academic initiatives with colleagues or peers. We are especially interested in individuals who can contribute through their research, teaching and service to the diversity and excellence of our academic community and foster an environment in which faculty, staff, and students from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and personal experiences are welcomed and can thrive.


The UCF Film and Mass Media degrees require courses that provide students with both a theoretical/critical studies foundation and an applied knowledge of film and media production and business practices.
