The Department of Art and Art History at the University of California, Davis invites applications for Teaching Artists-in-Residence in the California Studio. We are looking for artists in all disciplines, traditional and non-traditional, who are passionate about their research and eager to incorporate the vast resources of the university into the classroom. Visiting artists will teach an upper-division art studio class and a graduate seminar, deliver a public lecture, and further their creative work and/or research while on campus.

Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem’s visionary gift provides funding for a generous salary and benefits, as well as travel and academic creative enrichment funds. Visiting artists will be given a studio space and the opportunity to further develop their art practice in the community of students, other visiting artists, and faculty members.

The Department of Art and Art History’s mission is to cultivate curiosity and sustain the courage to embrace the unknown through art. We are committed to creating an equitable, hospitable and inclusive educational environment, and candidates with diverse viewpoints, backgrounds, and experiences are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must have a minimum of three years of teaching experience at the university level beyond TA or AI appointments. Candidates are required to have an MFA or equivalent professional experience, a well-developed portfolio in their area of specialization, and an exhibition record that is national and/or international in scope. They should be conversant in contemporary art issues and studio practices, and enthusiastic about teaching in a diverse, multicultural setting.
