The Program in Art and Art Education in the Department of the Arts and Humanities is seeking a highly qualified and experienced artist/teacher/scholar with research interests in teacher education and leadership in the visual arts. The candidate will be expected to enhance work already underway with partner schools, museums and community groups, and develop innovative research in both theory and practice that offers guidance for policy decisions both within and outside the discipline.

Conduct research into the cultural conditions and practices shaping school/community-based art education with special reference to the empowerment of underserved groups; provide leadership in sustaining collaborative projects with educational and cultural institutions both locally and overseas.
Qualifications: Earned doctorate; evidence of superior scholarship in teacher education and continuing artistic accomplishment; recommended experience of three to five years of successful teaching experience at elementary and/or secondary. Evidence of a broad concern with teaching and learning in the arts as these are shaped by socio-cultural, technological, and diversity issues.

Please send a letter of application indicating how you would anticipate fulfilling the responsibilities above.
