University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill Teaching Assistant Professor in NC-Chapel-Hill, United States

Employment Type: Permanent Faculty

Vacancy ID: FAC0004817

Position Summary/Description:

The Department of Art & Art History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for Teaching Assistant Professor in Photography with a start date of July 1, 2024. The position is an initial fixed term period of 3 years with potential for renewal; promotion is possible in 6-year increments. The successful candidate will have a dynamic studio practice and will have the ability to teach a range of undergraduate photography courses with an emphasis on the darkroom processes; mentor graduate students working across disciplines, and to articulate knowledge of and work effectively with faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds. Central teaching responsibilities will be in all levels of Photography. Additionally, there will be opportunities to teach interdisciplinary courses, including graduate seminars and experimental courses. We seek candidates whose creative practices are rooted in contemporary art and interdisciplinarity. We broadly invite applicants who take up a lens-based approach as foundational to their practice, some examples being: installation-related approach to the medium, drawing from photography’s status as an indexical trace of the visible world; documentary approach to the image that expands and disrupts historical uses of the genre; or a lens-based approach that engages the performative aspects of the medium. Applicants should be skilled in both traditional analog photography methods and digital technologies and have a fluency in contemporary cultural and aesthetic discourses. This position calls for teaching 3 courses per semester. Our service responsibilities include departmental committee contributions, advising, and participation in shared governance. In addition to teaching and service responsibilities, the successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to a sustained and developing creative practice, with an active and ongoing exhibition and/or publishing record.
