The Department of Art & Design at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University–New Brunswick, invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in Expanded Photography at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin September 1, 2022.

 We seek to recruit a broadly diverse faculty dedicated to cultivating visual and creative literacy, experimentation, critical dialogue, and equity within an interdisciplinary arts community situated in a leading public research university. Art & Design encourages applications from underrepresented groups in academia and the arts, including but not limited to artists of color, individuals of diverse gender identities and expressions, first-generation college graduates, artists with disabilities, and those with non-traditional and exceptional pathways to teaching and the arts. Students in Art & Design and across the University vibrantly reflect this diversity of backgrounds and identities, and the successful candidate will demonstrate the cultural and critical competencies to support and engage this rich multiplicity of artistic research and student life.

 The ideal candidate will have conceptual and technical grounding in the full complement of analog and digital photography. They should have knowledge of histories and theories of photography; an ability to teach all practices of fine art photography, preferably including both analog and digital; experience with related media, which might include new technologies, installation, film, video, performance, and/or social practice; and should have broad knowledge and understanding of contemporary art. Candidates should be active in their field, with a significant record of professional achievement and a demonstrated commitment to teaching. Preference will be given to candidates with at least three years of collegiate-level or equivalent teaching experience. The successful candidate will also demonstrate the potential to fully participate and thrive in an interdisciplinary arts environment, including a willingness to provide overall service to and potential academic leadership within the department and the school. 

 The position entails teaching undergraduate and graduate studio and seminar classes from introductory to advanced levels; teaching and advising graduate students working in all media; assisting in student recruitment, curriculum development, mentoring and overseeing graduate assistants; and serving on departmental and university committees. To apply, candidates should provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, the names and contact information of four references (who will not be contacted unless candidates advance in the process), and the following supplemental documents: a 1-2 page artist statement; a 1-2 page statement of teaching philosophy that includes an articulation of the candidate’s approach to inclusive pedagogy; two sample syllabi; a PDF with 20 images of the candidate’s artwork; and a PDF with examples of student artwork mentored by the candidate. For best consideration, apply by December 3, 2021. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
