Wilkes University invites applicants for a one year Visiting Assistant Professor in the department of Integrative Media, Art + Design beginning Fall 2017. The Integrative media major (offering both the BA and BFA in Digital Design and Media Art), is an interdisciplinary educational experience that blends a solid visual design and technology core curriculum with the choice of one or more minors in the areas of art, communication studies, computer science, English, business, marketing, or theatre. 

The successful candidate will be primarily responsible for teaching courses in the areas of graphic design, interactive media (web design), and design foundations. A secondary focus is encouraged in a wide range of media types including: 3D/2D animation, digital video, compositing, programming for visual media, digital sound design, and concept development.  A background in traditional studio arts is also a plus. The normal teaching load is 12 credit hours per semester.  University service and mentorship of students are also expected. 

Qualified candidates should have the terminal degree (MFA), and/or extensive professional experience in their area(s) of expertise and prior teaching experience at the university level.   Ideal candidates will have a good mix of skills in both design and technology.  They will be able to promote student development, to encourage strong aesthetic concepts, and to foster independent thinking and flexibility as students prepare for real world environments in digital media.

Review of applications will begin May 19th, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled.

Please be sure to include a cover letter, resume or curriculum vitae, three references and a PDF compilation or link to portfolio samples.

Wilkes University is constantly seeking to become a more diverse community and to enhance its capacity to value and capitalize on the cultural richness that diversity brings.  The University strongly encourages applications from persons with diverse backgrounds.
