The School of Art and Visual Studies (SAVS) at the University of Kentucky seeks applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor in Art Studio and Digital Design to begin August 2019. With thirty-three full-time faculty and many highly skilled part-time support faculty, the School of Art and Visual Studies offers the broadest visual arts curriculum in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. We have a long tradition of students and faculty creating ambitious, large-scale work in installation, performance, sculpture, ceramics, fiber, painting and drawing. Our award-winning building possesses over 117,000 square feet dedicated to supporting the development of knowledge and creativity related to the visual arts AND the mastery of materials and processes that supports the making of art.
The successful candidate will teach two courses per semester (2/2 teaching load) and advise both undergraduate and graduate students working in a variety of contemporary studio practices. The candidate will also be expected to conduct creative research and provide appropriate service to the school, college, university and public.
An MFA or equivalent terminal degree in the area of design or related field is required. To complement and expand the graphic design area within our contemporary arts program, applicants should demonstrate the ability to teach screen-based design (including, but not limited to web, app, and/or user interface), motion graphics, and emergent media. The capacity to teach professional practices and knowledge of current design practices and methodologies is required. Professional design experience and knowledge of 3D graphics is beneficial. Balanced understanding of the cultural context of visual production that includes familiarity with contemporary art is vital for this position. Previous teaching experience is preferred, as this position will involve curricular development in the new Digital Media Design degree.
