Mills College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Studio Art Sculpture/3D Practices position in the Department of Art and Art History beginning August 2015. We seek candidates with experience teaching sculpture/3D media. The successful candidate will be encouraged to develop and situate artistic practices conceptually and to employ traditional fabrication techniques as well as new tools and technology. Interdisciplinary collaboration, sociopolitical dialogue, and critique will be among the issues to be addressed in studio classes, lectures, and critiques. The successful candidate will be required to teach undergraduate and graduate level courses and mentor students within the context of an interdisciplinary art program at Mills. The successful candidate will also be responsible for maintaining an active professional practice nationally and internationally. Because teaching will include undergraduate studio courses, candidates must demonstrate proficiency in the technical as well as theoretical and historical aspects of their field(s). Demonstrable skills and techniques will be thoroughly integrated into the conceptual frameworks of professional practice.

Applicants must hold terminal degrees in their respective fields, and must demonstrate a strong record of excellence in teaching and scholarship/creative work. The successful candidate will be expected to play an important role in undergraduate academic programs, both within the Department of Art and Art History and in cooperation with the college at large.

Applications should include 20 slides of work by creating an account at Imgur.com and create an album with images scaled to 1280 pixels wide. Please include a link to your album in your cover letter. Also submit a curriculum vitae, a statement outlining current and future creative interests, and materials relevant to teaching experience. Applicants should also provide the names, addresses, and email contacts for three professional references.

Submit materials here.

Deadline for applications is February 1, 2015.
