Open Faculty Positions
The Department of Art and Art History at Franklin & Marshall College invites applications for a tenure-track position of sculpture beginning Fall 2019.
Rank will be Assistant Professor or Instructor depending on qualifications. M.F.A. and teaching experience preferred. Teaching load is 3/2 and will include introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in sculpture. In addition, the successful candidate will offer courses in the College’s general education program, Connections.
The person selected for this tenure-track position may also be considered for a supplemental appointment as a Franklin & Marshall (Mellon) High Impact Emerging Scholar. These are scholars who possess outstanding promise for inspiring and supporting the educational development of underrepresented minority students in a higher educational setting such as F&M. Selected finalists who meet these additional qualifications, in addition to those outlined by this ad, may be nominated by the department as an F&M (Mellon) High Impact Emerging Scholar. If selected as a M/HIES, the person will receive a two-year appointment (additional to the tenure-track appointment) that begins as soon as the person joins the campus on the tenure-track. The M/HIES program supports the acceleration of one's research trajectory with a significantly reduced teaching load for two years along with supportive mentoring to advance the scholar's research and professional development. Candidates interested in being considered for nomination should indicate their interest in their cover letter and highlight any previous work in this area in their diversity statement.
Candidates must submit the following supporting documents via Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/57748: a letter of application, curriculum vitae, graduate transcript(s), teaching statement, research statement, teaching evaluation forms, and twenty examples each of personal work and student work (across beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels). Applicants must arrange for three letters of support to be submitted by recommenders directly to Interfolio. Deadline for applications is January 31, 2019. Review of applications will begin on February 1, 2019.
