The Art & Art History Department at The College of Wooster invites applications for a visiting position in Art at the level of Assistant Professor, beginning in August 2020. We are looking for a broadly trained specialist in the 3-D design area. The candidate should also hold an MFA.

We are especially interested in hiring faculty who can contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the academic community through their teaching, research, and service.

The successful candidate should have a demonstrated ability to teach courses and advise research projects in 3-Dimensional Design, Digital Fabrication, sculpture, ceramics, and video/animation or drawing. They will teach the equivalent of 6 courses, including introductory and advanced courses in the Art & Art History Department, credited supervision of independent thesis projects as part of the College’s Independent Study program, and participate in teaching courses for non-majors. In addition, we are interested in candidates whose research and teaching can connect with one or more interdisciplinary programs at The College of Wooster such as Africana Studies, Global & International Studies, East Asian Studies, South Asian Studies, Middle Eastern and North African Studies, Urban Studies, or Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

Applicants should submit a letter of application; curriculum vitae; unofficial graduate transcripts; evidence of strong teaching (such as teaching philosophy, syllabi and student evaluations, if applicable) and research (such as research statement and writing sample of 25 pages or less); a statement detailing how the applicant has engaged and/or expects to engage with issues of diversity and inclusion in the classroom and the curriculum, as well as on campus and in the broader community; three reference letters through Interfolio; and 12-20 images of professional work and 12-20 images of student work. Please label images with your name and a number to correspond with an accompanying side script (01Lastname_firstname.jpg).  Applications received by January 31, 2020, will receive full consideration.
