Assistant Professor of Art | New Media Artist/Feminist Discourse | University of Oregon

We are seeking a new media artist whose work operates at the nexus of art, technology and feminist discourses. We seek a colleague whose practice and pedagogy recognizes feminist discourses as pivotal in theorizing the development of technoculture and in addressing urgent philosophical questions of our time. Possible areas of focus include cyberfeminism, activism and social practice, networked feminism, new materialism or the feminist history of science and technology studies. The applicant should also have expertise in one or more areas: video game design, animation, participatory practices, performance-based practices, virtual and augmented reality, digital fabrication, robotics, artificial intelligence, or other emerging technologies.

We seek a colleague who is interested in contributing to an established and progressive Art & Technology program. The successful candidate will have the ability to work effectively with faculty, staff, and students from a variety of diverse backgrounds and media areas. An MFA, or equivalent terminal degree is required. Previous college teaching experience is required.

Primary Responsibilities:

Teach in the Art & Technology program, with additional interdisciplinary opportunities, including graduate seminars, advanced studios and foundations. The University of Oregon operates on a system of three 10-week quarters with a typical load of five courses per year. Service responsibilities include committee contributions, advising, and participation in shared governance. Research and creative practice should engage leading-edge new media practices and critical cultural questions informed by intersectional feminist discourses. Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to a sustained and advancing creative practice.

Entering faculty generally will not supervise student employees (undergraduate and graduate), adjunct faculty, or classified staff, but may do so once tenure is granted.
