Another ceramics teaching position available – NSCAD

Assistant Professor: Division of Craft (Ceramics)

COMPETITION NO. F104.08

Subject to budgetary and final approval by the Board of Governors, this is an initial three-year appointment, renewable for continuing appointment.

REVIEWS BEGIN December 15, 2008
APPOINTMENT BEGINS July 1, 2009

Qualified applicants must have an MFA, MA or PhD and an established or rapidly developing exhibition record. Post-secondary teaching and/or relevant professional experience is required.

It is expected that the candidate will teach both undergraduate and graduate level courses to include a wide range of ceramic methodologies, skills and concepts. The preferred candidate will demonstrate a commitment to pedagogical and program development.

Knowledge of contemporary and historical discourses in ceramics and the visual arts is essential. Interest in one or more of these areas: ceramic materials, rapid prototyping and/or mold-making, theory and critical writing would be an advantage.

Service to the University and leadership in research and curricular initiatives is expected.

As NSCAD establishes a research agenda in innovation and technology, the University is seeking a candidate who will utilize the new Ceramics facility to develop unique collaborations and experimental directions for the medium of clay.

Applicants should include a current curriculum vitae, a maximum of 20 digital images of professional work, (on a single CD-ROM or DVD-ROM) and the names and contact information for three references. The University will seek permission from the applicant before contacting the referees. A statement of teaching philosophy, an artist statement and other relevant support documentation would be an asset. Please quote competition number F104.08 in your application.
