UTexas Austin Seeks Costume Technology Artist
The Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Texas at Austin is hiring a full-time, open rank faculty member to lead our nationally-recognized graduate program in Costume Technology. We appreciate you sharing the opportunity with your colleagues.
We seek visionary applicants interested in creating and teaching an innovative curriculum that features foundational knowledge in costume technology alongside opportunities for experimentation and innovation. The successful candidate will employ culturally-responsive and interdisciplinary methods of teaching and creating, and show evidence of a sustained engagement in original scholarship and/or creative practice.
Costume Technology is part of UT Austin’s dynamic Live Design and Production area. Faculty in this area cross traditional boundaries of design, performance, fabrication, and technology to also focus on new work in areas of live performance and related fields of film, broadcast, themed entertainment, gaming, concert, event, and exhibit.
Live Design and Production faculty intersect with undergraduate and graduate programs in the areas of Acting, Dance, Drama and Theatre for Youth and Communities (DTYC), Theatre and Dance Education, Performance as Public Practice (PPP), and Playwriting and Directing. Together, our faculty are committed to supporting the development of dynamic and critically engaged artist-citizens.
Our future colleague in costume technology will help us innovate one of the largest university theatre and dance communities in the country, with 50 full-time faculty and staff, 400 undergraduate students, and 70 graduate students. We aim to create the most intellectually diverse, inclusive and equitable department possible by cultivating a community of faculty, staff, and students that includes the experiences and expertise of historically-underrepresented traditions and perspectives.
The University of Texas at Austin has been designated a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and we fully engage in the University’s mission to foster a community that values diversity and inclusion as necessary elements of a world-class educational environment. We enthusiastically welcome applicants whose teaching and professional practice demonstrates inclusive excellence.
