The Center for Arts in Medicine in the College of the Arts is committed to advancing research, education, and practice in arts in health, locally and globally. We seek a dynamic director to lead our close-knit and rapidly expanding academic community made up of artists and scholars working in and researching the intersections of arts and health.

We seek a strong academic administrator: a strategic thinker with significant leadership experience, excellent communication skills, and administrative acumen. This individual will serve as a vital collaborator on the College’s executive leadership team and with our research and teaching-focused faculty and staff. The successful candidate should have the capacity to build programs and curricula and also cultivate a realistic, positive, and professional working culture. Well-qualified candidates will understand the origins of our field and appreciate the potential of emerging aspects of the work, in particular, community engaged practices.

This is a full-time, twelve-month faculty position. Rank and tenure status contingent upon candidate qualifications. Tenure home dependent upon candidate’s discipline with tenure upon hire, if appropriate.

The University of Florida College of the Arts intends to be a transformative community, responding to and generating paradigmatic shifts in the arts and beyond. As artists and scholars, we embrace the complexity of our evolving human experience and seek to empower our students, faculty, and staff to shape that experience fearlessly through critical study, creative practice, and provocation. We seek a colleague who identifies as a change-maker. We seek a colleague who will prepare students to access and unsettle centers of power in a radically changing world. We seek a colleague who will position emerging artists and researchers as catalysts for equity on local and global levels.
