The Department of Art at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, invites applications for a Tenure Track Assistant or Associate Professor in Design. We seek candidates who can serve as director for our undergraduate Design program and engage in interdisciplinary and experimental approaches to design research, practice, and pedagogy.
Situated in an innovative and experimental art and design program, the areas of Design and Art + Technology encourage cross-disciplinary inquiry.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate professional knowledge of the field and an understanding of design history, methodology, and critical issues in their own research agenda and design practice. An advanced level of expertise in one or more of the following areas is desired: print design and digital publishing, information design, interaction design, sustainability and social design, as well as experience in typography and other forms of visual rhetoric.
The department has recently launched PLATFORM, a new socially-engaged design lab. Candidates with an interest in community engagement and collaboration are especially encouraged to apply.
