Assistant or Associate Professor Position in Critical & Curatorial Studies
Position Description. The Department of Art at UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts seeks an Assistant or Associate Professor of Critical & Curatorial Studies. The Department of Art offers both Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees. The starting date for the position is July 1, 2014, with teaching beginning in September 2014.

Faculty positions at the University of California entail research, teaching, and service responsibilities. The Department seeks a colleague conducting research at the forefront of critical and curatorial studies, broadly defined as the theory and practice of exhibitions and related discourses. Candidates should possess a deep understanding of contemporary art and its precedents, with expertise in one or more of the following: art history, critical theory, performance studies, film/media studies, emerging digital technologies. The Department is interested in curatorial practices that challenge the limits of existing conventions and demonstrate an ability to take a stand, pose questions, and encourage new possibilities, especially in areas where silence has reigned. Candidates must be able to teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, while possessing the versatility to conduct critiques, special topic seminars, and university-wide lecture courses on contemporary art.

The successful candidate will become a core faculty member in a growing Critical and Curatorial Studies area (C&C) with active research and instructional programs. With the opening of our Contemporary Art Center in 2012, the campus now has three galleries of greater combined scale than many comparable universities. These curatorial platforms function as research laboratories for exhibitions and commissioned artworks. The C&C program is affiliated with the UCI Program in Visual Studies, as well as other units in the arts, humanities, and sciences. In coming years, the Department will launch an International Center for Critical & Curatorial Studies (CSCA) and a related new PhD program.

With 24 resident faculty members, the UCI Department of Art is a heterogeneous group of artists and scholars, valuing inquiry and experimentation over specific ideologies and intellectual methods. The department's research and instruction examines how definitions of art play themselves out in contexts ranging from the personal to the public, from the gallery to the street. Located in one of the most diverse regions of the United States, the Department remains mindful of its role in a global society. Faculty interests include legacies of modern and post-modern art discourses, "post-studio" practices, gender and queer theory, deconstruction and postcolonial critique, media and new technologies, museum and curatorial studies, social practice and public/community cultural work.

Qualifications. PhD, or equivalent training; a record of significant research achievements; minimum of 3 years of teaching experience at the post-secondary level (for applicants to the Assistant Professor position), or a minimum of 5 years of teaching experience at the post-secondary level (for applicants to the Associate Professor position); and a strong commitment to teaching, research, service, and collegial collaboration.

Application Requirements. 1) A cover letter explaining interest in the position and which position you would like to be considered for (Assistant Professor or Associate Professor; see qualifications above); 2) CV, including record of publications, projects, and/or weblinks; 3) Statement of research practice; 4) Statement of teaching philosophy; 5) Names and contact information for three recommenders; and 6) Copies of three (maximum) publications, to: https://recruit.ap.uci.edu.

Optional. Applicants have the option to submit a portfolio of up to 10 images and other media samples to: https://ctsa.slideroom.com. There is a fee associated with submission of materials.

Deadline. Thursday, April 10, 2014, with application review continuing until the position is filled.

Program Director BFA Design, Art & Technology, BFA Web Development and Interaction Design
The University of the Arts is seeking an Associate Professor to act as Program Director for two of its programs- BFA Design, Art & Technology (DAT) and BFA Web Development and Interaction Design (WDID). This is a multi-year contract/non-tenure track faculty position; salary and rank commensurate with experience.

These two new programs were developed in tandem as part of the major curricular renewal at the University of the Arts, based on its Academic Plan. The University of the Arts is committed to inspiring, educating and preparing innovative artists and creative leaders for the arts of the 21st century. Its programs develop the student?s talent, aesthetic sensibility, conceptual and perceptual acumen, cultural awareness, and professional expertise. University curricula integrate specific knowledge and skills needed for technical mastery of the various disciplines with a significant examination of conceptual and humanistic studies. Both DAT and WDID have a strong focus on entrepreneurship and collaboration and, while they have many courses in common, the programs have different aims.

DAT encourages students to transcend disciplinary boundaries to create new processes and innovative ways of thinking that explore the intersections of design, art and technology, and their impact on society and culture. Students use image, sound, text and interactivity as the basis for their exploration. Students may work in virtual and physical computing, motion graphics, data visualization, programming or electronic music.

WDID was created in recognition of the fact that the web and other interactive platforms are increasingly becoming the de facto medium for communicating, doing business, sharing and accessing information and networking. As the sophistication and complexity of interaction increases, the educational experience students are exposed to must change. In WDID, students explore the ways in which people use software applications, products and services. They engage in web design; dynamic web, tablet and mobile phone application development; information architecture; interface design and service design. User-centered design principles are a key focus of this program.

Both programs reside in the College of Art, Media & Design in the University of the Arts and the College has approximately 1200 students. Located prominently on the Avenue of the Arts in Center City Philadelphia, The University of the Arts is one of the oldest and largest comprehensive private institutions of higher education devoted to the arts in the United States. Its undergraduate and graduate programs prepare students for more than 150 professional career paths in the visual, performing, media, design and communication arts and related fields.

The successful candidate will be a good communicator and a community builder. The successful candidate will be able to lead these two linked programs, teach on them and contribute to their curricular development, growing them into substantial and dynamic programs. Preference will be given to applicants who are comfortable with coding and have digital web and game-based experience. Knowledge of contemporary digital practice and theory is required. Entrepreneurial skills/experience are essential.

Qualifications:
