Full-time appointment in the First Year Experience with a focus in studio art/design. The new First Year Experience was designed in response to the rapid changes in art, design and technology, and the intersections between them that are occurring today. It has been crafted to provide a rigorous, integrated curriculum that reflects the diversity of our people and our learning pathways.
The College seeks an outstanding and accomplished artist with strong conceptual and technical understanding of their specific field of interest and an abiding interest in working with developing artists and designers from diverse backgrounds. The studio artist/designer/educator will teach eighteen credits per year (normally three courses per semester) at an art school nationally known for its dedication to teaching excellence, a rigorous liberal arts curriculum and the importance of the fine arts. Specific courses taught will include the year-long, 6 credit Forum, along with other FYE and upper level courses relevant to their field of practice. The successful candidate will have a broad understanding of integrating practices, be knowledgeable of contemporary art/design issues and theory, and have the ability to combine theoretical, material, practical and social issues into studio pedagogy.
The First Year Experience of the Maryland Institute College of Art invites applications for this full-time faculty position with a multi-year renewable contract in a non-tenure institution beginning August 2018.
