Jobs

...for the 2024-2025 school year

instructors
 
Circadium is a college-level program, and teachers must be invested in the creative process with students, and in the collaborative work of the faculty.  Preparatory work, grading, and faculty meetings are a significant part of instructors’ jobs here.  Successful candidates will be excited about the school’s vision, and ready to roll up their sleeves to make an impact in the field of contemporary circus.
For all faculty positions, the class dates, times, and salaries are TBD.
 
All teaching hours take place between the hours of 8:30am-4:00pm, weekdays.
 
All positions listed are for in-person instruction; the option of alternating in-person instruction with online instruction can be considered for the right candidate.
 
Positions may be combined if candidates have multiple skill areas.  Positions may also be supplemented with teaching work at our sister school, the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts.
 
Circadium staff have the benefits of free training space year-round (large studios with 40’ ceilings, and smaller private classroom spaces), performance opportunities, and networking with the extensive Philadelphia circus community.
 
Our organization is committed to a diverse and multi-cultural faculty that represents the community where we live, and we encourage BIPOC and other culturally diverse candidates to apply for these positions.
