The Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm seeks to appoint a full time Professor of Visual Arts with an emphasis on Moving Image, broadly defined. The professorship is a full-time post which includes time for research. Candidates are prepared to instruct and supervise students at all levels—from BFA to MFA, with a possibility to supervise PhD students. Although RIA seeks to hire a Professor of Visual Art with an emphasis on Moving Image, preference will be given to candidates whose own interests, knowledge, and practice synthesize a wide range of interdisciplinary influences. The appointment is for five years and may be extended for five years by RIA without being re-advertised.


Candidates must have a substantial exhibition record with proven teaching experience at the college or university level. A completed MFA or the equivalent is also required. Applicants must demonstrate achievement and potential to make contributions in their specific field of research and practice. Candidates will be expected to participate fully in curricular developments and in all other aspects of the academic life of the school.

Full-time faculty are additionally expected to contribute service to the institution and participate in faculty governance.


Applicants for the position should submit the following materials by February 7, 2016.

Apply via the digital application form. It is possible to submit physical copies of books, leaflets and other printed material. Items must be individually marked with the applicant’s name and the Royal Institute of Art’s registration number 2.4.1-179-2015 and be sent to:

Royal Institute of Art
Box 16315
SE-103 26 Stockholm

For further information, please contact Ulrika Ledmyr, Director of Human Resources. Union representatives are Ulrika Gustafsson Rosengren (SACO-S) and Göran Svenborn (ST). All can be reached on telephone number +46-8-614 40 00.
