The Sarah Lawrence College Visual and Studio Arts Department announces one ½ time tenure track position in Printmaking beginning Fall 2022.

The position also requires ongoing advising of students from all areas of the college, and individual and small group conference meetings with students, both hallmarks of Sarah Lawrence College’s educational system.
