The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) seeks an experienced sound designer for a full-time tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Theatre Design and Production Department beginning fall semester of 2019.
The Theatre Design and Production Department (TD&P) at CCM is part of the larger Division of Theatre Arts, Production and Arts Administration (TAPAA) (Opera, Musical Theatre, Acting, Dance, Arts Administration, Theatre Design and Production), which has 68 members on its faculty and staff. As such, TD&P not only offers undergraduate (BFA) and graduate (MFA) training to its own majors but also produces a large and ambitious production season for the Departments of Opera, Musical Theatre, Acting, and Dance. The Division produces a main stage season of two operas, two musicals, and two dramas in two venues: a traditional proscenium house and a modified thrust. In addition, the Division also produces several studio productions in a third fully equipped studio theatre.
Duties include teaching courses in sound design at the BFA and MFA levels; executing or supervising sound design and/or reinforcement for all productions; mentoring BFA and MFA sound design students, and supervising graduate teaching assistants. Duties may also include supervising student crews; assisting other CCM programs and ensembles with sound reinforcement/design issues; and maintenance of inventories, equipment and venue systems. In addition, the faculty member will actively recruit for the Department and will serve on appropriate college and university committees.
The University of Cincinnati is the 10th largest research institution in the country, and The New York Times has called CCM one of the nation's leading conservatories. In 2018, CCM underwent a 15- million dollar theater infrastructure renovation that provides us with one of the most comprehensive arts training facilities in the United States. Its performance programs are nationally known, and the Theater Design and Production program is a regional leader in theater design, crafts, and technical production.
Candidates should hold a master's degree in sound design or equivalent and have a minimum of 3-4 years' professional experience in theater sound. Previous teaching experience at the college level is preferred. The successful candidate should have expertise in creation of soundscapes, music composition, sound reinforcement and recording, front of house mixing or tour experience on large scale-musicals, working knowledge of current technology and software. Should be familiar with Audio networking systems and protocols such as DANTE, MADI and AVB.
