ARTIST, Painting Emphasis
University of California, San Diego -- Department of Visual Arts
Assistant Professor, tenure-track, to begin July 1, 2015.
The UCSD department of Visual Arts within the Division of Arts and Humanities at UC
San Diego http://visarts.ucsd.edu is committed to academic excellence and diversity
within the faculty, staff, and student body.
The department seeks an artist who is deeply engaged with picture-making understood
in the expanding field of contemporary painting practices. The candidate will embrace
both new and traditional methods of painting and demonstrate a deep understanding of
contemporary art as well as historical precedents and recent debates that have
explored the limits of traditional formats and conventions.
The Department is seeking to broaden and enrich its engagement with contemporary
national and international painting practices. We seek awareness of the diverse roles
played by painting practices, and their historical and intellectual contexts, including the
impact of new technologies and materials in image production; the move of painting into
public space, as in street and digital practices; the understanding of painting and
drawing as cross- and inter-disciplinary practices; as well as the development of cutting-edge
exhibitions in the established contexts provided by museums and galleries.
We seek candidates whose work and thinking demonstrate sustained engagement with
the paradigms of painting by challenging, reworking or reformatting them; and whose
work is creatively original and culturally relevant. Successful candidates will have
developed critical strategies and/or research methodologies that promote social and
intellectual inquiry; and their teaching, service or public outreach will have prepared
them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education.
The successful candidate will have a demonstrated commitment to pedagogy. Faculty in
all areas practice and instruction in the Visual Arts department are expected to serve
both the MFA and Ph.D programs by giving critiques, supervising independent studies,
mentoring and leading student research projects as well as serving on graduate
committees. The department offers B.A., M.F.A., and Ph.D (in both art history and art
practice) degrees, and teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels is expected.
Candidates should have a record of excellence in teaching, evidence of their
understanding of academic responsibilities, and demonstrate potential for active
Rank and salary commensurate with qualifications and experience based on UC pay
