Review of applications will begin on January 10, 2017
The Crafts Department of the Tyler School of Art seeks a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor of Crafts to teach in the Ceramics Program. The ideal candidate will be influential in shaping the future of the discipline, have a broad understanding of ceramic materials and processes, and a strong exhibition record. Candidates who can expand beyond the traditional canon of ceramics to include a broader social, political, cultural, or artistic context are particularly desirable. In addition to being an accomplished artist, the successful candidate must have a demonstrated commitment to teaching. The position requires teaching a variety of ceramics courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as graduate studio and seminar courses in the larger context of the crafts and the studio arts.
Since 1935, Tyler School of Art has offered students the combination of a world-renowned faculty and the resources of Temple University. Tyler has grown from a small art school in Elkins Park, PA to encompass a wide range of programs in the study of art, design, art history, art education, and architecture on the Main Campus of Temple University. In each program, students work in small learning communities, while also benefiting from state-of-the-art facilities, a rigorous curriculum, and the life of a major research university.
Applicants must have a terminal degree or equivalent experience, and a sustained national exhibition record. A minimum of three years of full time college-level teaching experience, or the equivalent, is preferred.
