SCAD seeks a sculpture professor to help lead instruction at the university’s Atlanta location.
Students in the SCAD sculpture program build memorable experiences through public art, like the recent large-scale installation at the Hyatt Atlanta Midtown, and partner with leading brands like Anthropologie, Marvel Studios, and NBCUniversal.

The ideal candidate should demonstrate vision, ambition, and interest in collaborating with students and faculty across academic disciplines, display a mastery of traditional and contemporary sculpture methods (including digital creation and output), and have a working knowledge of software like Autodesk Alias, Maya, Rhino 3D, and ZBrush. You should have excellent computer-modeling, sketching, and visualization skills as well as a strong understanding of prototyping and construction.
