The Yale School of Art is seeking a working artist with a primary focus on painting, or its expanded category. The candidate should have an active and engaged exhibition record, as well as a strong technical background and conceptual grounding in the medium and history of painting. A minimum of 3 years college-level teaching and service experience, and an ongoing, excellent, and dynamic art practice is required. A knowledge of the discourses around contemporary art and an ability to address works across disciplines is necessary. A fully engaged presence on campus is required as well as a willingness to actively participate in service and collaboratively shape the future of both the undergraduate art major at Yale College in addition to the Painting/Printmaking department at the School of Art.
As the director of undergraduate studies, the ideal candidate should have a vision and passion for undergraduate education in studio art in the liberal arts/research university context; be a problem-solver who can present ideas about how to keep the Art major moving forward after assessing the status of the undergraduate area; be an empathetic and experienced advisor to students from diverse backgrounds working in various mediums. A record of educational service that diversifies the access, content, and methods of teaching is a crucial criterion for consideration. The candidate will act as the primary liaison between the School of Art and Yale College and should be enthusiastic about strengthening collaborations between graduate and undergraduate students.
The successful candidate will teach both graduate and undergraduate level courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, oversee theses, participate in critique sessions, serve on School and University committees, and actively contribute to and participate in the School’s vibrant co-curricular programming.
