John Cabot University, an accredited American liberal arts university in Rome, Italy, offering four- year degree programs, invites applications for an open-rank (assistant or associate) full-time tenure-track faculty position in Art and Design. The initial appointment is for two years with the possibility of tenure. Candidates are expected to be fluent in English, which is the language of instruction, and to have permission to work in the EU.

Candidates must have an MFA or equivalent terminal degree in an Art and Design discipline, a record of effective teaching in higher education, and a demonstrated record of scholarly and or creative achievement. The ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of contemporary art and design practices and theories, and have a capacity to engage and advise students from multiple disciplines within a liberal arts context.

The area of specialization within the candidate’s own creative practice may include contemporary art practice (such as curating, drawing, moving image, painting, printmaking and photography) or design (such as graphic design and exhibition design). Preference will be given to candidates whose approach to their own practice and teaching is interdisciplinary and who are able to teach both foundational and advanced-level undergraduate courses using both traditional and digital media.

The successful candidate will start in the fall semester of 2024. They will be expected to teach three courses per semester at various undergraduate levels, contribute to curriculum development, support the growth of an experimental and rigorous exhibition program of student work, and be an active member of the University community.

Applicants should send a cover letter expressing their interest and suitability for teaching within a studio-based curriculum at an American liberal arts college in Rome; an updated curriculum vitae; evidence of their own creative and scholarly practice; evidence of teaching excellence, which should include examples of student work. Materials should be sent as a single pdf file to artanddesignsearch23@johncabot.edu. Applicants should arrange for three confidential letters of recommendation to be sent separately to the same email address.

The application deadline is December 18, 2023. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. Only short-listed candidates will be notified.

Enquiries may be made to Professor James Gardner, Art and Design Search Committee Chair, at jgardner@johncabot.edu.
