1. MFA in Art or extensive professional recognition and experience (REQUIRED)
NOTE: The MFA is the terminal degree in Art. However, as listed in the department's criteria below, the department may accept documented equivalency in lieu of a degree when faculty are hired. When making appointments, the following may be considered in lieu of an MFA degree:
(a) Advanced studies at a foreign school that does not award MFA degrees
(b) Extended advanced study with recognized artists in the field
(c) Professional achievement which provides a depth of knowledge in the field comparable to an MFA degree. This might include evaluations by distinguished peers in the field which would state that, because of a faculty's exhibition record and professional achievement, this person has the equivalent of an MFA.
2. Practicing artist in the media area to which you are applying (REQUIRED)
3. Evidence of a current exhibition record and professional level of accomplishment in the media area to which you are applying (REQUIRED)
4. Some university or college-level teaching experience (PREFERRED)
The SCULPTURE area seeks candidates who have the ability to teach contemporary and traditional 3-D ideas and concepts for basic introductory sculpture courses. These classes stress skills necessary for further work in sculpture and ceramics at the intermediate and advanced level. Knowledge of the history and theory of sculpture with a working knowledge of metal fabrication, wood construction, clay modeling and plaster casting is essential. A successful adjunct application should have a strong working knowledge of metal casting and be able to teach foundry classes. Familiarity with the operating systems for the CNC router and laser cutter would be an asset.
