Two 100% fixed-term positions of 6 years with a focus on Painting or Photography—and beyond

The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art is seeking for applications from artists for two fixed-term positions that cover the fields of contemporary painting and photography. Both posts should aim to develop an expanded understanding of their respective field and beyond. Applicants will be expected to rethink and re-evaluate their discipline with a special focus on emerging, post-digital printmaking techniques and/or performative practices.

We are looking for applicants with the verve to explore new roles of art and the work of artists in today’s society.

These positions will play a core role in the study programs at the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. They will operate within an environment characterised by advanced facilities and a strong reputation in the fields of painting and photography. This environment has transcended the borders of traditional genres and enabled a wide range of artistic practices across disciplines.

The positions require a high level of commitment to explore the potential of an art academy that is embedded within a University for Science and Technology. Applicants are expected to show enthusiasm about the opportunity to relocate the centre of their professional activities to the premises of the art academy in Trondheim, and to share the outcome of their artistic research and production within the department as well as its local context and its broader international networks.

We are seeking applications from artists with an interest in developing innovative teaching methods.

The (Associate) Professor will be responsible for individual tutoring and teaching collaborative courses in the Bachelor and the International Master program in Fine Art, as well as a PhD program in artistic research. The study programs are designed for artists with the aim of developing and enriching their individual studio practice with cross-disciplinary investigations open to a variety of forms and fields of knowledge.

The two positions involve specific responsibilities to further develop the study programs and the artistic research capacities within the department. They require an articulate, well-developed approach to education, focused on the development of young artists in all three cycles, from BFA and MFA to the PhD level, as well as a high level of competence in developing and carrying out advanced, large-scale, and collaborative artistic research projects.

In addition to a clear vision of the role of contemporary art in a rapidly changing society, successful applicants will be expected to outline a teaching philosophy that elaborates on the tradition of studio-based art education while expanding it towards future challenges by linking it to advanced artistic research practices, both in terms of methodologies and substance.
