        Subject: Jobs: Media and Arts at Duke Kunshan University

Duke Kunshan University (DKU) invites applications for research and practice-
based faculty positions in Media and Art in areas including but not limited to
1) Digital Media Practice (digital design, digital sound, computation, data
visualization and information aesthetics, interactive graphics, 3d modelling and
animation, pervasive computing/internet of things); 2) Media and Communication
Studies (comparative media systems, global media, new media and society, and
public opinion, media ethics); 3) Visual Arts Practice (painting, drawing,
illustration, printmaking, graphic design, architecture); and 4) Art History
(Western, Latin American, African and global art history). These positions are
open with regard to rank, which may include tenured, tenure track and non-tenure
track appointments based on qualifications and experience.

In Fall, 2018, DKU launched an innovative, integrated and interdisciplinary
liberal arts undergraduate program  leading to both Duke and DKU degrees. We are searching for faculty to
begin teaching in the academic year 2019-2020 or 2020-2021.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in an appropriate field.
Research experience at a postdoctoral level (or greater) and teaching experience
are desirable, as is experience in working in an interdisciplinary setting.
Applicants should provide a cover letter including a clear statement of the
candidate's specific interest in DKU, a curriculum vitae, a research
statement, and a teaching statement, as well as the names and contact
information for three references. All materials should be submitted through
Academic Jobs Online: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/12960 . The search
committee also invites and encourages letters of nomination for potential
candidates. Nominations and questions about the positions may be sent to arts-
humanities-search@dukekunshan.edu.cn using 'Media and Art Search' as the subject line.
Applicants will be reviewed on a rolling basis.  Priority will be given to
applications received by January 30, 2019; we will accept applications until the
positions are filled.

Duke Kunshan University is a highly selective research-oriented, liberal arts
and sciences university that offers both an elite liberal arts education and an
environment in which premier research centers can flourish. Similar to the best
liberal arts colleges in the U.S., all DKU faculty are deeply involved in
teaching and advising and lead research teams comprised primarily of
undergraduates, and graduate students in some areas. Faculty should clearly
demonstrate their ability to serve as highly effective teachers with a strong
commitment to Duke Kunshan University's educational programs, which place
particular emphasis on liberal arts undergraduate education. Faculty performance
as scholars whose work has been widely perceived among peers as outstanding is
also important.  As a whole, the Duke Kunshan faculty will have strong
commitments to teaching and research and outstanding quality in both research
and teaching will be highly valued.

DKU is a partnership of Duke University, Wuhan University and the Municipality
of Kunshan, China
(https://dukekunshan.edu.cn/).* The DKU campus
is 37 miles west of Shanghai in Kunshan, and is connected to Shanghai via an
18-minute high-speed train and a subway-light rail train system. DKU provides
competitive compensation, benefits and start-up packages.

As an international intellectual community that encourages diversity, openness
and creative learning, DKU welcomes outstanding faculty from around the world
who contribute diverse perspectives and experiences to a global learning and
research environment. DKU particularly welcomes applications from
underrepresented groups and minorities.

* Duke Kunshan University (DKU) is accredited by the Ministry of Education (MOE)
of the People's Republic of China. Duke University is accredited by the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) in
the United States to award baccalaureate, master's and doctorate degrees. Duke
Kunshan University is not accredited by SACSCOC and the accreditation of Duke
University does not extend to or include Duke Kunshan University or its
students. Note that DKU undergraduate students successfully completing the
course of study required by Duke Kunshan University will be conferred both a DKU
graduation certificate and diploma officially approved by the MOE as well as a
diploma from Duke University (Duke University and its degrees are accredited by
SACSCOC). Further, although Duke University agrees to accept certain course work
from Duke Kunshan University to be applied toward an award from Duke University,
that course work may not be accepted by other colleges or universities in
transfer, even if it appears on a transcript from Duke University. The decision
to accept course work in transfer from any institution is made by the
institution considering the acceptance of credits or course work.
