The Department of Art and Art History at the University of California, Davis, invites applications for a lecturer position in the Art Studio Program to teach classes in PHOTOGRAPHY. Classes include Intermediate Photography in Winter 2018 (Jan-Mar), and Beginning Photography in Spring 2018 (Mar-June). A lecturer teaches a three-hour studio class twice a week and holds regular office hours for his or her students.

These classes introduce students to techniques in the dark room and digital methods, along with the historical and conceptual background necessary for contemporary practice at all levels of undergraduate teaching. These courses should integrate practical skills with conceptual foundations in a way that takes advantage of the instructor's strengths, interests and background. Applicants should be artists with professional practices and expertise in the field of photography. Qualifications include an MFA and teaching experience beyond the TA level.
Closing date for applications is Monday, November 27, 2017. Please submit the following materials to the recruitment website:

• A detailed image list including titles, dimensions, materials, date of completion, and description if necessary
• List of classes you have taught, where, and when
• Samples of course syllabi
• Three names of academic references with contact information

This is a non-tenured, temporary position: the appointments to the title of Lecturer are self-terminating (no further notice on non-reappointment will be forthcoming) and do not create an obligation on the part of the University either to extend or renew the appointment outlined above. Any reappointment will be preceded by an assessment.
