The Media Arts Department at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University seeks applications for a full-time visiting artist in moving image production. The position involves teaching undergraduate studio courses to art majors at all levels, from introductory to advanced.

Areas of specialization may include: video art and installation, performance video, live-action animation, experimental narrative, hybrid fiction and non-fiction, and/or other intersections between art and moving image.
Candidates should have an MFA in Studio Art or an equivalent degree, and should have college level teaching experience, preferably at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
