Job Description:

Mount Allison University is pleased to invite applications for the J.E.A. Crake Drama
Fellowship for the academic year 2021-22

The Crake Drama Fellowship is supported by the J.E.A. Crake Foundation and 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

The Fellow, an artist-scholar with the minimum qualification of an MFA or equivalent
experience, will be asked to contribute, as part of a team of theatre professionals and
academics, in ways appropriate to their qualifications and experience and, in particular:
1) teach two three-credit courses to be determined in consultation with the Director of
Drama, including leadership of the DRAM 4011 course; 2) supervise student projects as a
member of a teaching team in both semesters; and 3) provide a public presentation or an
artistic outcome (normally, but not necessarily, a directed production).

The term of the appointment, from 15 August 2021 to 15 April 2022 would ideally be
completed in Sackville; however, given Covid restrictions the role could be served either
in Sackville or from afar. According to parameters established by the funding
Foundation, the Drama Fellow will not undertake other paid employment during the
academic semesters. There is the possibility of renewal for one further eight-month
contract during the next academic

year. Subject to budgetary approval, the Fellow will
receive $33,250 per year plus benefits including moving expenses, an amount for
professional development, and health and dental insurance.

Review of applications will begin on 15 February 2021 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 emailed to:
