Loyola University Chicago, College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Fine and Performing Arts seeks qualified candidates for an appointment as a full-time Lecturer in Visual Communication, beginning in Fall 2024.

For more information about the department, please visit its website at http://ww.luc.edu/dfpa .

Located on Chicago’s vibrantly multicultural North Side, LUC is committed to creating an inclusive, responsive community of faculty, students, and staff. As an urban-based Department of Fine and Performing Arts dedicated to mentoring a diverse student body, many of whom come from under-represented and under-served populations, we especially encourage applications from candidates from under-represented groups. We also encourage applications from scholars committed to interdisciplinarity (i.e., working with colleagues across different subfields and disciplines) and the successful pursuit of external grants.

We seek a faculty member who is passionate about the field of graphic design and committed to excellence in teaching undergraduate students within a liberal arts context. The responsibilities of this position include teaching four undergraduate courses per semester in visual communication. The faculty member will teach various levels of undergraduate courses. We are particularly interested in candidates who have the ability to teach animation, color theory, and interactive design. The position also includes some service obligations, such as participating in critiques for Senior Capstone and attending departmental meetings.

Qualifications

An MFA or MDes in Visual Communication, Graphic Design, or other relevant field of study from an accredited college or university is required. Applicants should possess evidence of successful college-level teaching experience and a record of active professional practice. A candidate with at least two years of post-graduate college teaching experience and at least two years of professional experience is preferred.

Candidates should demonstrate responsiveness toward and understanding of diverse student backgrounds, especially regarding socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, culture, ability/disability, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Candidates must be willing to support the mission of LUC and the goals of a Jesuit Catholic education.
