The School of Art & Design invites applications for Part-Time Lecturer positions in the undergraduate program.
We are currently seeking additional instructors to teach Photography, Graphic Design, Digital Media, Simulation, Animation and Gaming and Art History.
Depending on the needs of the program, which vary in the regular Fall and Winter terms, we may seek new Part-Time Lecturers to typically teach non-majors courses in studio art and art appreciation, courses in studio art, and/or art history courses.
Principal Duties and Responsibilities
Teaching may include a number of particular obligations which employees are expected to fulfill, including but not limited to: meeting with students during and outside of assigned classes, assessing student work and performance, preparing syllabi and course materials, providing copies of syllabi and course materials to their supervisor on request, and assigning and submitting grades in accordance with established Eastern Michigan University schedules.
Perform related departmental duties as required.
Applicants must possess, or be in process of completing, a terminal degree in their field (MFA for studio art and design courses or PhD for Art History). Prior teaching experience at the college level is strongly preferred. For studio art courses professional experience and teaching within higher education may be considered commensurate to a terminal degree.
Applicants should submit a cover letter and resume.
Appointments for each term are finalized by the School Director in consultation with the area faculty and the personnel committee.
