J.E.A. Crake Drama Fellowship, 2016-2017

Mount Allison University is pleased to invite applications for the J.E.A. Crake Drama Fellowship for the academic year 2016-17.

The Crake Drama Fellowship is open to Canadian citizens and permanent residents, and the successful candidate will contribute to a non-conservatory inter-disciplinary program in Drama Studies that supports an extensive season of theatrical production in one of Canada’s top-ranked undergraduate universities.

The Fellow, an artist-scholar with a minimum qualification of an MFA or equivalent experience, will be asked to supervise student projects, make a public presentation (which may involve directing a production), contribute to program course-offerings in areas of the candidate’s expertise and interest “equivalent to work required to prepare and deliver one three-credit course per term”; and to provide leadership in other ways appropriate to her/his qualifications and experience while serving as part of a team of theatre professionals and academics.

The Fellow is expected to be in Sackville during the term of the appointment, from 1 September 2016 to 30 April 2017, and there is possibility of renewal for one further eight-month term. Subject to budgetary approval, the Fellow will receive $30,500.00 plus benefits including moving expenses, an amount for professional development, and health and dental insurance.

Review of applications will begin on 15 February 2016 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications must include a complete résumé, transcripts where appropriate, and three letters of reference, and should be sent to:
