Assistant Professor of Art with an Emphasis in Book Arts (Fall 2019)

Scripps College, a women's liberal arts college with a strong interdisciplinary tradition, invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in Book Arts and Director of the Scripps College Press. The position is four courses, senior thesis reading and directing the Scripps College Press.

Courses to be taught will include Typography, Book Arts, a theory seminar, and directing senior theses. In some years, teaching one course in the College’s Core Curriculum in Interdisciplinary Humanities will replace an advanced level course.

The Director of the Scripps College Press plans and oversees the activities of the Press, including publishing and disseminating the students’ books, organizing the Frederic W. Goudy Lecture Series, coordinating exhibits and publicizing the activities of the Press.

The successful candidate will have a broad knowledge of contemporary book arts, college teaching experience, and an MFA or Ph.D. with specialization in Book Arts with an emphasis on book production, typesetting with metal type, and edition bookbinding.

Participation in the Core Curriculum in Interdisciplinary Humanities program is expected. Preference will be given to applicants with a commitment to the College’s goal of improving higher education for underrepresented students.

Scripps College is one of seven members of The Claremont Colleges Consortium located 35 miles east of Los Angeles. In a continuing effort to build a diverse academic community and to provide equal educational and employment opportunities, Scripps College actively encourages applications from women and members of historically under-represented groups.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, letter of application, samples of past syllabi, evidence of excellence in teaching (e.g. course evaluations), URL links to your own portfolio and your students’ work, writing sample, and a list of three references to 'External Link' below.
