Comic Book Jobs: University of CT
Hey, Professor! Can you draw Bugs Bunny? Or Batman? Or several dogs playing poker?
That’s not quite the idea, but if you can draw, the University of Connecticut could be looking for you.
They need an Assistant Professor of Illustration in their Art & Art History department.
It’s a “tenure-track position” starting in August 2012. The position will engage both undergraduate and graduate level students in BFA and MFA degree programs. Opportunities for collaboration exist between illustration and the other studio disciplines.
In addition to teaching you’ll also be working on “curriculum development, advising and serving on departmental committees.” That last bit's kind of a drag, unless there's catering.
Tons of the usual education-based qualifications will have to be met, along with the usual teaching based experience.

Here’s the comic book-related kicker: “The applicant will be skilled in traditional and digital techniques and media, including some combination of the following: animation, game design, comics and graphic novels, and book arts.”
You’ll be teaching mostly at at the Storrs campus “with the possibility of work at UConn's regional campuses across the state.”
But hurry, the job posting closes on February 29.
Good luck, job seekers!
