The Art Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an on-going pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach full- or part-time, either during the academic year or Summer Session. We seek applications from outstanding candidates to teach Print Media, who are pursuing careers as creative and distinctive artists (versus those whose work reflects technical), and who have experience teaching Print Media at the college or university level.

In addition, the ideal candidate will demonstrate a broad understanding of the scholarly fields of visual art practices. Possible related areas of research and teaching might include immersive environments and convergences of design, art, science and technology. As always, the department seeks to add to its current strength in the creation of socially and environmentally engaged work. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching. Candidates accepted to our pool may be approached by other units to teach in areas related to their demonstrated areas of expertise.
BASIC QUALIFICATIONS: M.F.A. or Ph.D. or equivalent foreign degree (practice or research based) in related field of study (i.e. Book Arts, Digital Printmaking, Lithography, Silkscreen), or four years of equivalent professional experience in artistic and creative work consisting of national and/or international record of performances, exhibitions, or installations in museums, galleries, festivals, or alternative venues engaging the general public.
PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: University teaching experience. Applicants should have a notable and consistent exhibition record, and show professional experience in contemporary practice of Print Media. Experience in teaching general courses such as Introduction to Printmaking, Intermediate Printmaking, and Advanced Printmaking. Experience teaching in specialty areas such as relief, montype, digital printmaking, lithography, intaglio, silkscreen, or book arts. We have a preference for candidates with multidisciplinary orientation bridging areas of Intermedia, public art, social practice, environmental art, sound art, photography, media arts, physical computing, and gaming.
