Massachusetts College of Art and Design is seeking an
accomplished artist/educator to join our growing illustration
program. Our curriculum emphasizes the practice of drawing
and painting from observation, in order to acquire depth of
understanding beyond surface, and advance the
development of personal voice. Since illustrators work with a
wide range of media, we are looking for a flexible artist with
publication in any of the following areas: drawing and
painting, printmaking, experimental and 3D work, narrative
work of all kinds, as well as a working knowledge of current
practices in digital media.
The position is full time, tenure track at the rank of Assistant
or Associate Professor beginning in the fall of 2014. In
addition to teaching 3 courses per semester, the faculty
member will be expected to participate in curriculum
development, committee work, various departmental
activities, student reviews and student advising. The
successful candidate will be qualified to teach a variety of
courses within the major, serve as an enthusiastic mentor,
and assist students in preparation for post-graduate
experience. We seek someone who will broaden the
department?s professional presence beyond the college
community. Academic experiences and interests in culturally
diverse groups are also valued. May have opportunity to
teach graduate and post-baccalaureate students.
The faculty member will be accountable for ensuring that
affirmative action, equal opportunity, and diversity are
integrally tied to all actions and decisions for which he/she is
responsible and which fall within the scope of the Affirmative
Action/Equal Opportunity/Diversity Plan.
Review of applications will begin on Tuesday, January 21,
2014 and will continue until the position is filled. Starting
date is September 2014. Salary commensurate with
experience.
