Located 36 miles east of Atlanta on Emory’s original campus in Oxford, Georgia, Oxford College invites applications for the immediate hire of a full time Lecturer in the Visual Arts. The start date will be August 2020. The individual will teach six courses per year, in two different disciplines: Classical Drawing and Sculpture. Other areas of expertise may be considered but preference will be given to the candidate who can meet the immediate needs that connect with, contribute to, and build upon the existing art curriculum. Along with the introductory studio courses, the instructor will teach a Discovery Seminar and participate in the Milestone Project. In addition, this individual will develop at least one upper level course in the studio arts or the field of art theory to be taught in the general rotation of courses within the Visual Arts and Art History Department. The candidate will also assume the responsibilities of the Studio Manager in regards to the purchasing of supplies, the maintenance of the facilities including the machinery and equipment and the development of safety protocols needed for a superior educational experience in the Arts.  


We seek a candidate who holds an MFA (Terminal Degree in the Visual Arts) who has a demonstrated track record of excellence and innovation in teaching at the undergraduate level and is committed to working with students from diverse backgrounds. It is also imperative that this individual understands and embraces the uniqueness of Oxford College in relationship to Emory University. The successful candidate must also recognize the importance of teaching art courses that make a vital contribution to the realization of the General Education Program. This candidate will also be a recognized artist/scholar in his or her discipline.


Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, undergraduate and graduate transcripts (unofficial acceptable), and three letters of recommendation via Interfolio http://apply.interfolio.com/74415. The cover letter should address the candidate's qualifications for the position as well as their interest in working at a liberal arts college. Evaluation of candidates will continue until the position is filled.


One of Emory University’s four schools partnering in undergraduate education, Oxford College provides 975 first- and second-year students of high academic profile an intensive liberal-arts program for the first two years of their Emory bachelor’s degree.  We are interested in candidates with a commitment to working with a remarkably diverse student body in an inclusive learning community that values excellence in teaching and close student-faculty interaction.  Applications from women and historically underrepresented minorities are particularly welcome.
