Job Description

Otis College of Art and Design is accepting applications for a full-time faculty appointment in its Foundation department.

Initial placement in rank is recommended by the department Chair and requires review and approval of the Chair of the Rank & Promotion Committee and the Provost.

The 3-D Design position reports to the Area Head for 3-D Design and the Chair of Foundation. The application deadline is Friday March 29, 2019.

Job Duties

Classes: Foundation Program, Building Form and Form and Space

Building Form: Students study form in both two-dimensional rendering and three-dimensional building through drawing and building objects.

Form and Space: Students employ acquired skills transferred from Drawing and Building Form to explore and exploit materials as well as to discover unique processes in creating novel form. The study of three-dimensional design expands to encompass meaning construction, composition and research as students engage the more complex issues of form and space. Prerequisite: FNDT 160 Drawing and Building Form. Recommended for students planning to select A/L/I, Fashion Design, or Product Design as their major. Some sections of this course produce work in both analogue and digital formats.
