Non Tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor of Practice in Painting and Drawing

College/School/Unit: College of Fine Arts
Department: Art & Art History
Posted: Dec 2, 2022
Apply By: Open until filled


The Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin seeks applications for a full-time, non-tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor of Practice in Painting & Drawing, with an anticipated start date of Fall 2023. Rank and salary commensurate with experience.

Teaching will be the contractually defined primary area of focus for this position, with undergraduate courses to include three levels of drawing, life drawing, and four levels of painting. Opportunities also exist for graduate teaching. Professors of Practice officially carry a 3/3 course load plus service. Expected service includes Painting area maintenance, governance, and curricular development. Candidates able to assume a Painting & Drawing area leadership role will be preferred. Further opportunities exist for service to the Studio Art unit, the Department, College, and University. Professors of Practice are expected to remain current in their practice, but are not expected to make nationally significant contributions in the area of research/creative activity. However, this teaching position is designed to permit continuation of an outside professional career as a visual artist.


Applicants are expected to be well-versed in traditional painting and drawing media and conversant with an expanded field of painting. An MFA is required, but exceptional professional qualifications will be considered. Teaching experience is required, preferably at the college-level. Documented successful exhibition record or professional activity in the field of painting or drawing is preferred. Demonstrated knowledge of and experience applying best practices in diversity, equity and inclusion in teaching, service, and visual art is preferred.

To apply for the position, please submit the following documents that address the required and preferred qualifications.

● A letter of interest; please include a statement describing how you have worked to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in your classroom and how you will continue to do so at The University of Texas

● Current curriculum vitae

● Names of three professional references (with phone and email contact information)

● Documentation of research/creative output (20 images of your artwork)

● Documentation of student work (10-20 images)

All materials should be submitted by clicking the "Apply Now for Free" button, below.

Review of applications will begin February 1, 2023, although the position will remain open until filled. Please contact search committee chair Dan Sutherland with any inquiries about the position. Selected applicant will be subject to a background check.

We encourage applications from persons belonging to groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education, including women, racial and ethnic minorities, the differently-abled, and the LGBTQIA communities.
