The Department of Art & Art History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for a
tenure-track faculty position in photography at the rank of Assistant Professor with a start date of July 1, 2022.
The position is a full time, nine-month academic year appointment.

We seek candidates whose creative practices are rooted in contemporary art and interdisciplinarity. We broadly
invite applicants who take up a lens-based approach as foundational to their practice, some examples being:
installation-related approach to the medium, drawing from photography’s status as an indexical trace of the visible
world; documentary approach to the image that expands and disrupts historical uses of the genre; or a lens-based
approach that engages the performative aspects of the medium. Applicants should be skilled in both traditional
analog photography methods and digital technologies, as well as have a fluency in contemporary cultural and
aesthetic discourses.

The Department of Art and Art History at UNC-Chapel Hill is dedicated to building a diverse community of faculty
who are committed to anti-racism, equity, and inclusion. Therefore, we seek a colleague who is engaged with
central issues around racism, gender discrimination, and all forms of intolerance in their practice and / or in their
teaching, contributing to the diversity of the department by bringing a perspective and / or a unique set of
experiences that deepen the intellectual conversations in the field of photography.

The Department of Art and Art History seeks a colleague who will participate in shaping the future of photography
at the University. The successful candidate will have a dynamic studio practice, and will have the ability to teach a
range of undergraduate courses; to mentor graduate students working across disciplines; and to work effectively
with faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds. Central teaching responsibilities will be in the area of
photography, with additional opportunities to teach interdisciplinary courses such as first year seminars, graduate
seminars and experimental courses. The teaching load is two courses per semester, and all studio faculty serve
on 2-3 MFA graduate committees per year. Service responsibilities include departmental committee contributions,
advising, and participation in shared governance. In addition to teaching and service responsibilities, the
successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to a sustained and developing creative
practice, with an active and ongoing exhibition and publishing record.
