Comic Book Jobs: Northern Michigan U

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Graduation DayHeads up, Eggheads.

If you’re tired of the grind of drawing comic books for a living and would like a job with steady hours, summers off and a chance at tenure, then it might be time to go back to school. And teach about drawing comic books.

Northern Michigan University (Marquette, MI) is looking for an Assistant Professor of Illustration in their School of Art And Design.

They want “an energetic illustrator with previous university/college teaching experience, which could include graduate teaching assistantships.” So I guess your fill-in issue on The Fantastic Four won’t count for much.

There are a lot of requirements, as there would be for any teaching position, but one stood out: “Knowledge and understanding of concept art and sequential art (storyboarding/comic book) are also important.”

They’re going to want you to start teach in the fall, August 2011, and they’re accepting applications through March 7, so you have about a month to get your resume together and make your pitch.

Good luck, Professors!
