Call for Applicants: Visiting Lecturer of Video Art at DXARTS

The University of Washington Department of Digital Arts and Experimental
Media welcomes applications for a visiting lecturer appointment with a
concentration in Experimental Video Art in the 2023-24 academic year. The
appointment starts in September 2023, ends June 2024, and has a temporary
(100% FTE) nine-month service period.

The Experimental Video curriculum explores a wide range of conceptual and
technical practices with an emphasis on time-based art, animation,
installation, real-time video, and related media; we support a strong
conceptual and technical foundation and encourage cross-disciplinary
collaboration. The Video curriculum is well-supported by a dedicated
computer/editing lab, and an extensive stock of production hardware,
including DSLR and digital cinema cameras, tripods, lights, drones,
stabilizers, and sound recording equipment. The position will be supported
by a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and DXARTS Staff.

Candidates must be able to teach a 400-level studio course serving both
undergraduate and graduate students, and be proficient in a range of
approaches to video and digital media. Although past syllabi will be made
available, the individual hired can integrate their research and pedagogy,
and present an interdisciplinary, expanded approach to the video
curriculum. The individual hired will teach a total of six courses over
three quarters including two Experimental Video Art courses, a Special
Topics course of their own design, and three quarters of Digital Art and
New Media: History, Theory, and Practice, an asynchronous online course.
Along with teaching, there are potential opportunities to support the
successful candidate’s research practice, including use of the DXARTS maker
space, studios, and gallery. Salary ranges from $54,000 to $65,000 for the
9 month appointment, commensurate with experience. This is a benefits
eligible position.

It is preferred that applicants have an MFA or foreign equivalent—as well
as a strong professional and academic record. Please submit a CV, a list of
three references, sample course syllabi, research statement, diversity
statement, and portfolio that the candidate believes adequately represents
their research practice. Submit all materials to dxarts at uw.edu

The preferred deadline for application submission is May 26th, 2023.
