Art & Art History: Visiting Lecturer of Art - 000080A

The program in Visual & Media Arts Practice in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of Richmond seeks to hire an artist working in Sculpture & Extended Media for a one-year, full-time position as Visiting Lecturer of Art. Our ideal candidate is someone who can teach all levels of Sculpture and Extended Media, including traditional metalwork, woodwork, various casting methods, and contemporary computer-aided processes such as 3D printing, laser cutting, and CNC routing. Candidates with creative work rooted in sculpture, but extending into areas such as drawing, painting, printmaking, time-based media, or multimedia installation are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates must be well versed in the history of sculpture and contemporary art theory and practice, as well as the impact of technology on human perception and the ways in which digital technologies have transformed more established modes of 3D media. Dedication to teaching and the ability oversee sculpture facilities, sustain health and safety standards, and develop innovative approaches towards incorporating sculpture into our integrated curriculum is mandatory. Creative work that is nationally or internationally recognized through exhibitions, or other forms of dissemination, and that demonstrates potential for professional growth is required.

Applicants should visit our Careers Site (http://jobs.richmond.edu) to complete the online application. Applicants will be asked to submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, copies of academic transcripts, a portfolio of personal artwork (20 images in a single PDF, 10mb maximum), a portfolio of student work (if applicable, 20 images in a single PDF, 10mb maximum), and the names of three references who will receive an email asking them to submit their reference letters. Review of applications will commence April 17, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body and to modeling an inclusive campus community that values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the department and its programs, see http://art.richmond.edu.
