The Hollins University Theatre Institute seeks applications for a part-time Scene Designer or Scenographer Visiting Guest Faculty for the fall 2016 semester.

Responsibilities include teaching two classes (scene design and scene painting) in the undergraduate program, and creating scene designs for up to two main stage productions and two black box productions. There is also possibility for design work with the institute’s professional partner, Mill Mountain Theatre. Compensation is competitive, and private cottage campus housing is provided.

The newly designed Hollins Theatre Institute is ranked among the top twenty college theatres by the Princeton Review, and has earned multiple Kennedy Center Awards for innovative playwriting and production. The institute offers B.A. in Theatre and M.F.A. in Playwriting degrees and graduate certificates in new play performance and directing.

M.F.A. degree in theatre is required at time of appointment. Experience with collegiate theatre is helpful. Applications are sought from candidates who have demonstrated success working with diverse populations. Recent M.F.A. graduates are encouraged to apply. Final candidates will be subject to a criminal history background check.

Qualified candidates should submit a letter of interest, resume or curriculum vitae, links to creative work, contact information for three references, and graduate school transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable) to ezulia@hollins.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. Preference will be given to applications received by April 1, 2016. Interviews at SETC are possible.
