The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is seeking an individual of international standing and critical acclaim in the field of art to serve as director of its Visual Arts Program. His or her accomplishments may be in artistic production, design, or critical and theoretical works.

The Visual Arts Program focuses on the development of critical visionary strategies in artistic practice within the context of the advanced technological community of MIT. The Visual Arts faculty is composed of outstanding artists with international reputations and with active careers in artistic production. Students in the Program include undergraduates and graduate students majoring in a variety of fields from engineering to media studies as well as a small, select group who make up the visual arts graduate program. The students are intellectually gifted and highly motivated. Under the aegis of the School of Architecture and Planning, the Program has the capacity to create links with Architectural Design, HTC (History, Theory and Criticism), the Media Lab, as well as other MIT research and teaching units. Important programs and centers at the Institute with history of interactions with the Visual Arts Program include: CAVS (Center for Advanced Visual Studies), CMS (Comparative Media Studies), EECS (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science), AI Lab (Artificial Intelligence Lab) and many other cross-disciplinary groups.

Qualifications: The candidate should be inspirational and highly articulate in contemporary and historical issues of art and visual culture. The candidate will be expected to develop existing educational structures and methods that help bridge student skills and interests with the creative practice and broad knowledge of art. The position requires the administrative and leadership skills necessary to guide the evolution of the Visual Arts Program, and to represent the Program effectively within and outside the MIT community. A substantial record of teaching at the college, university, or art school level is desirable.

The appointment can begin as early as September, 2003. Please submit letter of application, supportive material and the names of at least four references to Professor Joan Jonas, Director, MIT Visual Arts Program, Department of Architecture, 265 Massachusetts Ave., N51-315, Cambridge, MA 02139. Review of applications will begin March 15 and continue until the candidate has been selected.

Materials will be returned if a self-addressed stamped envelope is enclosed with application.

MIT is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
