Professor of Fibers

Fibers artists interweave art, design, science, and tech to shape our collective experience of the material world. As a professor of fibers at SCAD, you will instruct students across the textile spectrum, from fashion and interiors to surfaces, automotives, and even robotics. The SCAD fibers department is the largest of its kind in the U.S. with a comprehensive curriculum and large, inspiring facilities stocked with top-of-the-line tools and resources - and within could be your classroom to lead.

As a professor of fibers, you will meet teaching responsibilities and expectations as outlined in the SCAD Faculty Handbook. For example: planning and preparation for teaching; maintaining an active and engaged classroom environment; syllabus design, submission, and approval; holding office hours and midterm grade reviews to provide feedback to students; being available to students outside of regular class hours through extra help sessions, extended learning opportunities, and study (field) trips; and conducting course- and program-level assessment.

In this role, you are also required to meet professional responsibilities and expectations, such as modeling professionalism; fulfilling grading and academic documentation requirements; recording attendance; following academic policies and regulations; and supporting academic assessment and institutional effectiveness efforts.

You must be available to attend on-ground and virtual events upon request or as required.
