Open Rank Faculty Member in Animation The University of Texas at Dallas
The School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication (ATEC) at the University of Texas Dallas invites applications for open rank non-tenure stream faculty members in 3D animation with an outstanding record of teaching or animation production. Professional animation experience and active participation in the animation community is required. Candidates should be well-versed with computer based/3D animation/motion graphics techniques and have at least two years of university-level teaching experience or professional equivalence in a closely related field. With the leadership of inaugural Dean Anne Balsamo, successful applicants will welcome the opportunities and challenges of creating a multidisciplinary school that values collegial open-mindedness and supports collaboration across differences. Created in 2015, the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication merged two long-running programs at UTD: the program in Arts and Technology and the program in Emerging Media and Communication. As a School, ATEC serves more than 1,500 students, including 100 master's students (MA and MFA) and 40 doctoral students. ATEC faculty include artists, designers, computer scientists, social scientists, cultural theorists, and reflective practitioners who seek to collaborate on intentional future-making through the creation of new cultural forms, the design of new technological experiences, the production of new knowledge, and the transformation of the culture industries. Students are taught to be conversant across the discourses of art/science/design/engineering/humanities. They are expected to gain foundational knowledge in multiple disciplinary areas of expertise. They learn how to engage with different modes of knowledge production, different methods of analysis, and different research and creative practices. This search aims to help create a diverse faculty body and seeks applicants who contribute to equal opportunity at UT Dallas. We particularly welcome candidates who place race and ethnicity, diasporic concerns, underrepresented populations, or social inequalities at the center of their research and teaching interests, as well as faculty who might bring to their research diverse perspectives that stem in part from their non-traditional educational backgrounds or from their personal experiences as members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
Applicants should submit Curriculum Vitae, cover letters, statements of teaching philosophy, unofficial transcripts, teaching evaluations, portfolio (or web site), up to two sample syllabi and contact information for 3 or more professional references via application website available at http://jobs.utdallas.edu/postings/7155. Applicants may also submit statements of research interest and representative publications. Review of applications will begin January 15, 2017, and continue until the position is filled.
