Assistant Professor – Pre-Modern Art History

Chicago
United States

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 1 July 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Department seeks applicants with innovative approaches to scholarship in art history, visual media or studies, 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 pre-modern (before ca. 1850) period and any geographic area, with any theoretical or methodological focus are invited to apply. The position includes a normal teaching load of four courses per year, as well as commensurate advising and service responsibilities.

This search for an Assistant Professor is connected to a concurrent search for a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow (http://apply.interfolio.com/91491). We encourage all applicants to submit applications for both postings so that all available options may be considered for the selected candidate.

Application Instructions:

  • Cover letter introducing research, teaching interests, long-term career goals, and detailing progress toward completion of PhD if not in hand
