Tulane University, Newcomb Art Department

Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in Studio Art (3D)
We are searching for a collaborative faculty member in Studio Art (3D) with experience in teaching one or more of the following areas: sculpture, 3D design fundamentals, woodworking, metalworking, installation, casting, fiber arts, and/or digital fabrication. This faculty member will supervise one or more studio spaces including a fully equipped wood shop (overseen by a full-time manager), a metals area/foundry, mixed media space, glass/hot casting area, and digital fabrication equipment. The ideal candidate will possess a strong background in teaching sculpture/3D media and employ an integrated approach to cultivating artistic practice across traditional and emerging modalities in their classroom. Artist-teachers whose research and practice engage with social and environmental justice, decolonization, ecology, the nature of representation, experimental technologies, artificial intelligence, or any new form of practice that contributes to the expanded field of interdisciplinary three-dimensional work will be of particular interest.

Full-time faculty teach undergraduate and graduate-level studio classes, seminars, and consistently serve on BFA and MFA committees within the interdisciplinary art environment of these programs. Tenure-track faculty members are expected to maintain active professional careers and participate in ongoing curricular development, departmental administration, and school governance. The courseload for each of these positions is 2:2.

Salary and benefits are competitive with peer institutions and commensurate with quality of practice, scholarship, academic research, extent of teaching experience, and current professional standing.
