Printmaking Visiting Instructorship at FAU
The Department of Visual Arts & Art History in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts & Letters of Florida Atlantic University has been authorized to hire a Visiting Instructor in Printmaking for the 2015 – 2016 academic year beginning in August (the official start date is August 8, 2015, and classes begin on August 17, 2015).
The position has a teaching load of 4 courses per semester and it runs from the fall through the spring semester. The printmaking area is undergoing renovation, and this includes the installation of digital hardware, including a laser cutter and a large format digital printer with relevant computer hardware and software, so knowledge of digital applications in printmaking is essential and a portion of the assignment may be dedicated to studio technical matters. Traditional techniques of printmaking, including screen and intaglio processes, are taught, and all relevant equipment is available. Studio classes are capped at 18 students.
The position is based on the Boca Raton campus of FAU, which is located between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, about an hour or so north of Miami and its vibrant art scene, including ArtBasel in December. Boca Raton is a coastal city with lovely beaches just minutes away from campus. The salary for the position is $40,000 for the year plus benefits. As the position is a Visiting Instructorship, there is no formal announcement for it on the FAU Human Resources website.
Individuals interested in applying for the position should submit the following materials by 5:00pm, Wednesday, July 15, 2015:
a) A cover letter or e-mail that expresses interest in the position and a brief statement of research/teaching interests and qualifications,
b) A curriculum vitae with relevant information,
c) A dossier of images (no more than 20) of personal creative work and/or other relevant research, preferably in PDF format,
d) A dossier of images of student work (no more than 20), if available, preferably in PDF format.
All files, including larger image-files, may be sent to me, Dr. Brian E. McConnell (firstname.lastname@example.org
), also, via www.wetransfer.com
or other file transfer service. Should one wish to do so, a copy of the cover letter should be sent to me directly as an e-mail, also, so that I know the materials are on their way.
