The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) seeks exceptional artists, art historians, architects, and scholars for full-time tenured or tenure-track positions in a variety of disciplines to join the ranks of its renowned faculty. Open searches for full-time faculty with submission deadlines in December 2013 and January 2014 include Academic Director of Architecture and Design; Art Historian in Contemporary Art History and Theory; Art Historian in Modern and Contemporary Architecture; Art Therapy; Arts Administration and Policy; and studio areas including Art and Technology Studies; Photography; Printmedia; and Visual Communication Design.

Individuals who are conversant in contemporary practices, committed to teaching at the college level, and interested in shaping the next generation of artists and art-related scholars as part of SAIC’s stimulating intellectual environment are encouraged to apply. Rank and salary are competitive with peer institutions, and reflect candidates’ professional standing in their fields, particular areas of scholarship or practice, and teaching experience. International applicants are considered, and some relocation funds are provided. All positions begin August 2014.

Full-time faculty are members of a department that develops and offers undergraduate courses and graduate seminars, works with graduate students on a one-to-one basis, and oversees theses and research projects. Faculty are expected to maintain active professional practices, contribute to the vibrant and creative culture of a prestigious art school, and participate in departmental and institutional initiatives and planning. There is an expectation that most full-time faculty will chair their departments on a rotating basis as well. The Academic Director of Architecture and Design will have limited teaching responsibilities to allow for a focus on developing new creative opportunities, and strategically positioning the department and its programs internationally through industry collaborations and high-profile project proposals.
