United States

Description

In an initiative to broaden our methodological and conceptual coverage, the Department of Art History at the University of Chicago invites applications for an appointment at the rank of assistant professor with an expected start date of July 1, 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter. 

The Department seeks applicants with innovative approaches to scholarship in art history, visual media and/or the built environment, an ambitious research agenda, and a commitment to developing pedagogical techniques for teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Scholars working in any period and any area are invited to apply, including those who would build on existing departmental strengths. A demonstrated engagement with underrepresented or emerging fields within art history and/or with interdisciplinary studies is desirable. The position includes a normal teaching load of four courses per year, as well as usual advising and service responsibilities.

Qualifications

All requirements for the PhD in Art History or a related field must be completed by the start of the appointment.

Application Instructions

Applicants must apply submit the following materials through the University of Chicago's Academic Recruitment site at http://apply.interfolio.com/78402:

  • a cover letter introducing research and teaching interests, including any relevant reflections on the ethical demands of teaching and doing research in academia today (if the PhD is not yet in hand, please discuss the timeline for expected completion); 
  • a current curriculum vitae; 
  • and names and contact information of three individuals who have agreed to provide a letter of recommendation. 

All application materials must be submitted no later than 11pm on October 15, 2020. Additional materials may be requested following the initial review of applications.

The position is contingent on final budgetary approval. 

A goal of the search is to increase the diversity of the faculty in the Department, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups that are historically underrepresented in the disciplines noted above, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian or Alaskan Native, and individuals with disabilities.

The University of Chicago is using Interfolio's Faculty Search to conduct this search. Applicants to this position receive a free Dossier account and can send all application materials, including confidential letters of recommendation, free of charge.
