Department: IU Bloomington School of Art, Architecture + Design
The Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design (Eskenazi School) is seeking a dynamic and enthusiastic colleague for a full time, non-tenure track Visiting Faculty position in Painting (https://soaad.indiana.edu/academics/areas/ceramics/index.html) to begin in fall 2021.
The successful candidate will demonstrate the values we try to cultivate in our students: to be equitable, curious, collaborative, and adaptable to a global art world. We seek applicants whose portfolios and research address the broad-ranging implications in contemporary art. The required area of expertise is Painting (broadly defined). Other desired skills could include but are not limited to digital art, drawing, illustration, graphic design, installation, or fabrication. We host BA, BFA, and MFA programs.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to teaching five courses a year, participating in group and individual critiques, assisting in maintaining the studio environment, providing service as needed by the area and school, and maintaining and pursuing professional and academic expertise. The position is an annual appointment renewable for up to two years based on performance, funding, and programmatic needs. Teaching responsibilities span all levels of undergraduate and graduate painting. Courses may include introductory through advanced project-based painting classes as well as advanced painting, advanced drawing, Core Area (studio art fundamentals) courses, BFA and MFA and seminars, and weekly MFA critiques. We strive toward equitable inclusion and seek candidates who can provide collegial initiative in a team-based environment. A strong candidate will have demonstrated contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion and an ability to work successfully with students, faculty, administration, and the larger school community. We require evidence of sensitivity to and understanding of the socio-economic, academic, cultural, and ethnic diversity within the student population. This includes but is not limited to students for whom English is not their first language, first-generation college students, and students with physical and/or learning differences or disabilities.
The Eskenazi School actively upholds diversity, equity, and inclusion as critical principles of our research, teaching, and service. We validate the voice and potential of every member of our community, strive to create a culture in which difference is valued, and celebrate multiple perspectives within and beyond the School. We believe that social and cultural consciousness can inspire meaningful dialogue and empower all to become influential and fulfilled citizens of the world. We recognize that discrimination and prejudice sustain privileges for some while creating barriers for others. We acknowledge that institutional discrimination and implicit bias exist. We are committed to eliminating obstacles to equity as we create a safe and positive environment where all differences are valued. To this end, we promote equitable pedagogical practices that demonstrate sensitivity to an understanding of the socio-economic, academic, cultural, and ethnic diversity among the student and faculty population.
