Now Hiring: Graphic Design Faculty Position in Design Justice

Part of the Design Justice Cluster Hire– several openings in various programs across two years: Architecture, Graphic Design, Interior Design, and Product Design

About the Design Justice Cluster-Hire Initiative

Design Justice is a new initiative within the College of Design, seeking to create space, policy, and practices that support the inclusion and retention of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) as well as other communities who have been historically underinvested. Design Justice is supported by a group of individuals across design disciplines, known as the Collective, who are committed to anti-racism, decolonized pedagogy, and the liberation of communities underinvested historically in design academia and the design industry. Areas of scholarship, teaching, and/or service will involve anti-racism, racial justice, racial disparities, and/or racial discrimination; equity, power/privilege, and/or bias; benefits to the BIPOC, immigrant, and refugee populations; environmental and social justice; and/or other forms of studying and countering systemic oppression. Successful candidates for all positions will have the clear potential, demonstrated ability, and/or related scholarship to support our BIPOC and other marginalized communities.

Position Details

We are seeking to hire tenurable or tenure-track candidates who are committed to advancing a scholarly, pedagogic, and/or service agenda focused on an area of design justice, as described above. Successful candidates will teach a range of undergraduate and graduate courses specific to the needs of their program area.

These are 100%-time academic year (9-month), tenured, or tenure-track faculty positions. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience, and will be supplemented by a generous start-up package to support the advancement of scholarship and teaching that aligns with the tenure standards of the specific program. Start-up packages typically include course release/s, graduate student assistant/s, and/or other means determined through dialogue with the department head. Applicants should be prepared to serve as a member of the Design Justice Collective for their first two years. The priority application deadline is October 15; however, applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. The anticipated start date is August 2023. Regardless of the start date, selected candidates will receive the cluster experience.
