Assistant Professor (Print Media)

The Department of Art and Art History at the University at Rhode Island (URI) seeks a professionally active artist who works with innovative approaches to analog and digital printmaking in their practice and pedagogy to teach at the undergraduate level. The candidate’s CV should reflect a growing exhibition record and a national/international reputation.

The successful candidate will work to integrate the expanded field of print through their practice and pedagogy within the department and other disciplines. Their multidisciplinary approach will develop a curriculum that synthesizes theory and practice in relation to current cultural and social issues fostering interdisciplinary activity among art disciplines and the larger university.

Our print studios house equipment, tools, and chemistry for lithography, intaglio, relief press, etching, letterpress, and book arts. Students have access to Mac-based computers, adobe software, copiers, printers, large-scale printing services, vinyl and laser cutting, and 3-D printing.
The candidate will join the department just as we start to plan for our new building slated to open in 2025 and will help shape the new printmaking facilities, including bringing in other techniques and equipment.

We respectfully recognize that the University at Rhode Island’s location is within the traditional territories of the Narragansett and Niantic people in past and present, and honor with gratitude the land and its people. Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to social justice, equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion in their research and/or teaching. At the University of Rhode Island, half of the students qualify for Pell Grants, and the University’s Talent Development program recruits and serves students from historically disadvantaged backgrounds, a majority of whom are scholars of color. In the Department of Art & Art History, diversity, inclusion, and equity are central to our mission.
