The Department of Communications Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison seeks a Visiting Assistant Professor to teach two courses per semester: a course in 2D character animation, as well as a second course in Visual Effects, 3D character animation, Story Design, or area of specialization.
Appointment is for one year, starting Fall Semester 2014, but has the potential to be renewable. Either advanced degree or equivalent professional experience as an animator is required. College teaching experience is preferred (but not required). Candidate should have a strong portfolio of work (an online demo reel) that demonstrates expertise in character animation. In addition, the ideal candidate should possess a broad knowledge of animation history, as the media production program strongly emphasizes the connection between theory and practice.
Application deadline: February 20, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
A formal letter of application and CV should be sent to:
