job posting: Head of Ceramics Department @ Cranbrook Academy of Art

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Michigan — Cranbrook Academy of
Art, ranked nationally as one of the top ten programs in graduate art
education, seeks a new leader for the Ceramics department. The
successful Ceramics candidate should demonstrate a strong record as a
professional artist at the highest level in the field, have teaching
experience at the graduate level and strong interpersonal and
communication skills to lead the department of 15 students.

Cranbrook Artists-in- Residence are the singular leaders of their
departments. They are given the autonomy to determine the department’s
pedagogy and the responsibility for its success. At Cranbrook,
Artists-in- Residence are not typical faculty members. They are
full-time artists and designers who live on campus, and whose personal
studios are located within their departments. During the academic year,
September-May, the Artist-in- Residence mentors 15 graduate students in a
collegial environment including nine additional departments: 2D
Design,Architecture, 3D Design, Fiber, Metalsmithing, Painting,
Photography, Print Media and Sculpture. Within the Department, each
Artist-in- Residence selects their students, guides the development of
each individual and nurtures a productive and interactive environment.
The degree program culminates in an exhibition and written
masters-statement approved by the department head.

Candidates for this position must be unusually well qualified to
provide open, independent learning, resulting in rigorous production,
critique and discussion, and inspire research,innovation and
experimental paradigms. It is anticipated that the Artist-in- Residence
will also advocate the program via the web, publication and
national/international lectures as an active component of recruiting
future students.

Cranbrook is not simply a graduate program; it is a community of
artists and designers, living and working together on a campus that was
designed specifically for that purpose. Cranbrook Artists-in- Residence
are provided with a private studio, housing on campus and benefits in
addition to salary.

The Ceramics Artist-in- Residence should respect the history of
ceramics while embracing the visual and conceptual elements of the field
through a wide-range of formats and methods, including new
technologies. Conceptual models for Ceramics should be characterized by
an interdisciplinary, expansive approach that can be used as an open
framework for building new visions that will evolve the future of the
discipline. The department boasts five large, energy efficient,
state-of- the-art, Blaauw gas kilns- three fully computerized and two
manual, and several medium and small electric kilns. The studio is
equipped with all the essentials and more: blunger, hydraulic extruder,
tile saws, spray booth, grinders, sandblaster etc. In this way we hope
not only to cater to the already established ceramic tradition- we aim
for the department to be at the frontline of contemporary ceramic art
and design.

Candidates for this position must be working artists with a sustained
record of peer recognition; a demonstrated commitment to college-level
teaching; a Master’s Degree or higher; excellent communication skills
and leadership skills; the ability to provide a productive and
interactive learning environment; the capacity to make a significant
contribution to their field and to the Academy.

Position commences September 2017.
