Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Photography

Cornell University’s Department of Art invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Photography beginning in fall 2018.

The Department of Art, part of the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, offers both B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees with a strong liberal arts component. The department enjoys a close relationship with Cornell’s Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art and diverse academic units across the university. Art faculty and students have access to extensive traditional and digital production facilities in the college as well as to the resources of a major research university.

We seek candidates with significant teaching experience, a strong exhibition record, and a critical practice that has received wide recognition. Applicants should have a deep knowledge of both darkroom and digital photographic processes and technologies and must be able to teach from a demonstrated familiarity with art history and theory, especially with regard to critical issues in contemporary photography. The Cornell B.F.A. is structured as an artist/scholar program stressing the integration of inter-disciplinary studio practice with content from across the university; the candidate should therefore be able to address photographic/art practice in a broad context in an atmosphere of close faculty-student involvement and mentoring.

The position requires an M.F.A. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Responsibilities include teaching all levels of the undergraduate program as well as graduate advising, developing topical seminars, and participating in related departmental service such as admissions and portfolio review, curriculum development, and student advising.

Required application materials:
1. Letter of application
2. Statement of teaching philosophy
3. Examples of course syllabi
4. Curriculum vitae
5. Work samples (links or other appropriate documentation) and work list
6. Student work samples
7. Three letters of reference
