Concordia University’s Department of Studio Arts in the Faculty of Fine Arts invites applications for one Extended Term Appointment (ETA) position in Studio Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies in Fine Arts starting August 1, 2019. ETA members are intended to respond to specific full-time teaching and service needs of a continuing nature that do not require a probationary or tenured appointment. Teaching and service are mandatory responsibilities. Under the provisions of the Collective Agreement between Concordia University and the Concordia University Faculty Association, individuals will receive an initial appointment for approximately 36 consecutive months (August 1, 2019 to May 31, 2022). ETAs are eligible for reappointment subject to the availability of work and positive evaluation of their performance.
The ETA position encompasses the delivery of high-enrollment courses, as well as Studio Arts theoretical seminars, at one of Canada’s premier art schools in the cosmopolitan, cultural hub of Montréal, Québec. Situated within the Department of Studio Arts, in collaboration with the Interdisciplinary Studies in Fine Arts (FFAR) area (through the Office of the Dean), the position entails curriculum development and delivery at the graduate and undergraduate levels in the Faculty of Fine Arts, with teaching and service responsibilities in the MFA in Studio Arts program and the FFAR area. The position will provide continuity and capacity for teaching and leadership of the group of Academic Seminar (ASEM) courses within the MFA in Studio Arts, and consistent teaching and stewardship for the FFAR area. The position will contribute to critical post-colonial, race or Indigenous theory and the role of cultural narratives in art and scholarly practice, while building on our institutional commitment to diversity and inclusion. Opportunities to engage in and promote cross-departmental, multi-disciplinary partnerships for the benefit of students at the entry and advanced levels stand at the heart of this position.
