Faculty in Woodworking

Sterling College seeks a woodworking candidate who can teach introductory wood based classes, maintain our woodworking studio, mentor students in individual projects, and is rooted in the specifics of local ecosystems. The experience and expertise of candidates should include: experience as an educator and practitioner in woodworking, and connections with a broad range of artists and craftspeople. Sample course topic areas include, but are not limited to, machine woodworking, hand tools and green woodworking, and timber framing.

The successful hire will have access to the studio space for any complementary personal and professional needs beyond the responsibilities of this part-time position, as mutually agreed upon by the Dean of Academics. In addition, opportunities to teach and develop programs for Professional Studies may expand this part-time role.

Having relevant teaching experience, subject matter expertise, and advanced academic credentials and/or substantial practitioner experience in fields related to these searches is essential. Sterling encourages applications from candidates who have professionally demonstrated a commitment to interdisciplinary, experiential, outdoor-oriented, hands-on learning through study and work as well as our ecological thinking and action mission, and a commitment to pedagogy that integrates multicultural perspectives in the curriculum and promotes inclusion in the classroom.
