The Digital Arts and New Media (DANM) M.F.A. Program [http://danm.ucsc.edu/] at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), which serves as a center for the development and study of digital media and the cultures they help create, invites applications for an ongoing pool of part-time Lecturers.
DANM courses address interdisciplinary artistic and scholarly research and production, in the context of a broad examination of digital arts and cultures. Lecturers will generally be appointed to teach courses that address current theory and practice, but course topics may also include mechatronics, participatory culture, performative technologies, or playable media.
Applicants with expertise in theory and practice of digital arts and new media are strongly encouraged to apply. The campus is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching and other assigned duties.
Commensurate with qualifications and experience and the particular courses the Lecturer is appointed to teach. Compensation for Summer Session courses may vary from courses taught during the academic year.
- M.F.A. (or equivalent foreign degree) at the time of application; or two years of artistic and creative work resulting in publications or exhibitions at the time of application
- Demonstrated record of having taught at least one course at a college or university.
Appointments are contingent on the hiring unit’s instructional need and the availability of funding. Appointments are typically made during one or more quarters of the regular academic year (fall, winter, and spring quarters), but they may also be made during Summer Session.
Applications are accepted via the UCSC Academic Recruit online system. All documents and materials must be submitted as PDFs.
