Job Description:

 

The College of Arts & Science invites applications from qualified individuals for the position of Gallery Director, a tenure-track Academic Programming Appointment (APA) at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the department of Art & Art History. 

This APA appointment is equivalent to a Director in the Canadian public art gallery system, and involves programming, teaching and administration.

The successful candidate will oversee the activities of four galleries on campus (two College Galleries, and the Kenderdine, Gordon Snelgrove Galleries), the University Art Collection, and manage a permanent staff of four. They will initiate, lead and participate in research activities; compete successfully for external funding to support this research program; undertake relevant administrative activities, including meetings and committee work; teach courses within their area of expertise, and supervise student research projects. The director will have access to an administrative support network including fund development, financial administration, and human resources. We expect that the Gallery Director will initiate a vibrant gallery program centered on an imaginative approach to exhibitions, curation and collections, and expand professional development opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students through learning initiatives with community partners.
