Assistant Professor of Print (tenure-track)


The Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for the position of tenure-track, assistant professor in printmaking and extended media, with an anticipated start date of Fall 2024. We seek applicants who are versed in traditional print media and have a strong investment in expanded print processes. An MFA is required and some post-graduate teaching experience. The position requires relocation to Austin, TX.

As a tier one research institution, The University of Texas at Austin expects tenure-track faculty to actively pursue original creative work/research that makes a national impact on their discipline through publication, exhibition, and/or performance. Such faculty normally teach two courses per semester and mentor students at all levels. Undergraduate Print offerings range from Intro to Print (encompassing lithography, relief, intaglio, and silkscreen) to Advanced Print Workshops. Opportunities to teach graduate courses, which serve students from all media areas, rotate among studio faculty. Faculty also perform service – including governance, curricular development, and other committee work – critical to the missions of Studio Art, the Department, College, and University. The successful candidate may also provide programmatic leadership of the print area, which would include oversight of print facility equipment and course offerings, as well as supervision of technical staff and teaching assistants.

The successful applicant will join a large and vibrant department, totaling nearly 50 tenure-track and professional-track faculty members, among whom 21 artists pursue their creative practices side-by-side with art historians and art educators. The Studio Art program alone serves approximately 300 undergraduate majors and 20 MFA students. US News and World Report (2020) ranked the program 23rd among Best Art Schools and 6th in Sculpture.

The University of Texas at Austin offers outstanding resources in the Fine Arts Library, Blanton Museum of Art (which has a vast print collection), Harry Ransom Research Center, and Benson Latin American Collection.
