The Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) and Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) invite applications from full-time, tenured and tenure-track faculty members in the Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts) at UMBC for a Faculty Artist-in-Residence fellowship for the Fall 2021 semester.
The award is intended to support and promote significant collaborative research in the Arts between colleagues at IMET and UMBC. The UMBC CIFAIR awardee will receive a release from teaching in the Fall 2021 semester (one course release, with permission of the Chairperson) and a research stipend of up to $5,000 in order to conceive, establish, or accelerate a substantial project that engages IMET scientists and ventures. In addition, IMET commits $2,000 towards supplies and materials. IMET will provide office space for the awardee and, if necessary, can also make available studio space. IMET will work with the awardee to make available opportunities to engage with a wide range of scientists and to present work and have discussions with IMET stakeholders, including faculty, students, start-up companies in the IMET Harbor Launch business incubator and our partner institutions.
