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.

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.

Program Director BFA Design, Art & Technology, BFA Web Development and Interaction Design

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.
