Assistant/Associate Professor of Audiovisual Archival Studies

The Department of Information Studies of the Graduate School of Education and
Information Studies at UCLA invites applications for a tenure-track assistant
professor or tenured associate professor specializing in audiovisual archival
studies. The successful applicant will have research and teaching interests
that relate to any aspect of audiovisual archival studies, broadly conceived
as encompassing moving image, recorded sound, and digital media archives.
These interests might include one or more of the following:

  * the nature, history, and role in society, of physical and digital collections of archival moving images, sound recordings, and new media objects;
  * the nature, history, and role in society, of media and technologies for the production, transmission, organization, discovery, retrieval, presentation, and playback of audiovisual works;
  * uses and users of audiovisual archives;
  * the appraisal, description, arrangement, documentation, curatorship, conservation, restoration, preservation, and exhibition of audiovisual archival resources, and of textual, visual, and material artifacts relating to such resources;
  * the design, evaluation, and use of collections, records, data/metadata, and digital/media asset management systems for audiovisual archival resources;
  * public programming and outreach in audiovisual archives;
  * the provision of equitable and open access to audiovisual cultural heritage;
  * community, ethnic, and Indigenous audiovisual archives and memory-keeping traditions;
  * the management of audiovisual archives in commercial (e.g., studio) and nonprofit (e.g., library special collections, museum) settings;
  * policy development and analysis for audiovisual archives;
  * the evolving identity of the moving image and recorded sound archivists' professions;
  * social, economic, political, and legal aspects of audiovisual archives management; and
  * international collaboration, policymaking, and standards development for audiovisual archives.
The Graduate School of Education and Information Studies (GSE&IS) is one of
the top-ranked schools in the U.S., and supports internationally recognized
research centers including the Center for Information as Evidence. Within the
school, the Department of Information Studies has emerged as an innovative,
interdisciplinary locus for theory and research in information studies,
including archival and museum informatics, data curatorship, information
policy, new media, preservation, and textual and visual studies. The
Department's faculty has been recognized as among the most productive and
highly-cited in the field. Faculty members have close ties with UCLA's Center
for Digital Humanities, Ethnomusicology Archive, Film & Television Archive,
Library Digital Collections, and Library Special Collections.

  
The Department offers an M.A. program in Moving Image Archive Studies (MIAS),*
an M.L.I.S. (Master of Library and Information Science) degree with
specializations in archival studies, library studies, informatics, and rare
books and print and visual culture, and a Ph.D. program in Information
Studies. The MIAS program was established in 2002 as the first graduate
program in North America (and still the only one on the West Coast) to address
the technical, cultural, and policy challenges of preserving moving image
cultural heritage (film, video, and digital) through a systematic program for
preparing future moving image archivists to lead the field. The archival
studies specialization of the M.L.I.S. program is among the most highly
regarded nationally and internationally, and a leader in initiatives to
pluralize archival practice and research.

  
All faculty in the Department teach at both master's and doctoral levels;
thus, candidates should be able to demonstrate how their research and teaching
interests and experience will help foster the growth of the M.A., M.L.I.S.,
and Ph.D. programs. This position entails: teaching four four-unit courses
(including at least two of the core seminars in the MIAS M.A. program) per
year, or their equivalent, in accordance with the Department's workload
policy; advising and mentoring graduate students; actively engaging in
research; and actively participating in administrative responsibilities for
the Department, the School, and the University.

  
The School and the Department have strong commitments to the rich and varied
multicultural communities of the Southern California region, and a reputation
for merging research and practice in statewide, national, and international
outreach and service. We seek a scholar who will make the most of Los Angeles'
unique advantages as a setting for research that links audiovisual archival
studies to public engagement, and for creating international connections,
especially with the Pacific Rim and Latin America. We particularly encourage
applications from those whose research and teaching address the practices,
perspectives, and needs of diverse populations.

Rank: Assistant Professor or Associate Professor.

  
**Starting date**: July 1, 2014. (Teaching duties begin late September 2014.) This position is contingent upon final budgetary approval.  
  
**Qualifications**: A Ph.D. or other terminal degree; a research agenda; a publication record (or demonstrable potential for such); established teaching competence; ability to secure grant funding.  
  
**Salary**: Commensurate with qualifications and experience. UCLA also has an attractive benefits package.  
  
**To apply**: On-line applications only. Please apply on-line at https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF00107 with a letter of application, outlining scholarly background as well as current and future research plans; a curriculum vitae; samples of publications; and (optionally) a statement addressing your contributions to diversity through research, teaching, and/or service. Please also have at least three confidential letters of recommendation.
