While applications are not limited to those working in the following subfields, we are particularly interested in accomplished scholars or scholar-artists working in dance studies, writing for theater and performance, theater history, and performance studies. A terminal degree is required, as is a substantial record of publication or equivalent professional experience in practice-based research (for senior candidates) or evidence of comparable future activities (for junior candidates). Candidates whose work engages diasporic and/or hemispheric approaches; migration studies; and/or comparative or relational approaches to race/ethnicity in the U.S. (including candidates whose work intersects with Indigenous studies, Asian American studies, and Black studies) are also encouraged to apply.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are core values at Washington University in St. Louis.

Washington University especially encourages applications from women and members of minoritized groups.
