Expectations include undergraduate advising, graduate mentoring, maintaining an active research agenda, and departmental and university service. A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment.

Penn State is committed to and accountable for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in all of its forms. We embrace individual uniqueness, foster a culture of inclusive excellence that supports both broad and specific diversity initiatives, leverage the educational and institutional benefits of diversity, and engage all individuals to help them thrive.

Global Black Studies and the Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College, SUNY, seek candidates with specializations in African diasporic culture and art. The successful candidate will be affiliated with the Global Black Studies program and will be jointly appointed to an academic discipline appropriate to their training and to the Neuberger Museum of Art. While expertise in African Arts is essential, we welcome applicants from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, and past curatorial experience is not required. Preferred applicants will possess research expertise in one or more of the following interdisciplinary fields: critical race theory; decolonial/postcolonial studies; disability studies; indigenous studies; and gender/queer studies. The successful candidate will be committed to innovation as they situate the Neuberger Museum of Art’s African collection in its post/colonial histories,

Located 25 miles north of Manhattan, Purchase College, celebrates diversity and creativity, encouraging students to “Think Wide Open.” The College was founded on the principle that artists and scholars are indispensable to each other and the pursuit of social justice. Toward that unique effort, the successful candidate will combine their work in teaching and curating to create unique opportunities across campus for learning and scholarship.

Global Black Studies is an interdisciplinary minor within the School of Natural and Social Sciences with dynamic course offerings in anthropology, history, literature, music, philosophy, political science, and sociology.

The Neuberger Museum of Art is one of the largest academic museums in the nation with a permanent collection of more than 6000 works of art and a robust program of exhibitions and related education programs. African art has been an integral part of the Neuberger Museum of Art since it opened in 1974. The collection of over 300 works is the only African collection in New York stewarded by an academic museum.  The collection is distinctive in its diversity and in the rarity of several of its objects.  It is highly sought after by community in the region, locally by our PK-12 school group partners, and by campus collaborators.

The successful candidate should have a record of excellence in teaching and a passion for working closely with students, as well as be committed to student success, and a liberal arts education. The successful candidate must be able to use their scholarly expertise to work with the Neuberger collections of African art and organize exhibits both from historical and contemporary perspectives. The successful candidate will also use their expertise to highlight, foreground, and disrupt the complex, troubled histories of African art collections.

This is a full-time, tenure track faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. Five years full-time experience at the rank of Assistant Professor, or professional equivalent thereof, is required for appointment at the rank of Associate Professor.

Primary responsibilities per academic year will include teaching 2 courses; creating curatorial projects in relation to the African collection along with related programming; working with students including supervising 2-3 senior projects or graduate equivalent, and mentoring upper-level students and interns; service on campus committees; and attendance at unit and department meetings.  The successful candidate is expected to be fully engaged in college activities, making the work that they do a meaningful part of campus life.

Desirable: At least two high-quality research publications since 2014 (in any appropriate form, including but not limited to published written work, digital outputs, exhibitions or films), which could be considered for evaluation in the national research assessment due to occur in the UK in 2020-21.

Durham University (Durham, UK) - Assistant Professor in Classics (Roman History)[edit | edit source]

The Department of Classics and Ancient History at Durham University seeks to appoint an outstanding scholar to the role of Assistant Professor in Classics (Roman History) at Grade 7-8. We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in the broad field of Roman History; while a focus on visual/ material culture in addition to specialisation in Roman History would be desirable, it is not essential.

The Department of Classics and Ancient History is one of the very best in the UK and indeed worldwide, with an outstanding reputation for excellence in teaching and research. We were ranked joint second in REF 2014 in terms of the quality of our research (by grade point average), and joint first for both research environment and the Impact of our research. We attract large numbers of exceptionally talented undergraduate, MA and doctoral students, and we focus on high quality research-led teaching, often in small groups. We also regularly attract postdoctoral fellows to the Department. We are consistently ranked amongst the top Classics Departments in the UK in student-facing guides, and student satisfaction with our degree programmes, as measured by the most recent (2018) annual NSS Survey, stands at 97.4%.

Candidates are expected to make a strong case for complementing existing areas and/ or developing new areas of research excellence in the Department. We have a long tradition of excellence in Greek and Latin literature, ancient history and ancient philosophy. Three interdisciplinary research centres are based in the Department: the Centre for the Study of the Ancient Mediterranean and the Near East, the Durham Centre for Classical Reception, and the Durham Centre for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy. In addition to these established areas of strength, we are interested in developing collaborations with other cross-Departmental research initiatives: for example, visual arts and culture, medical humanities, and digital humanities. For more information, please visit our Department pages at https://www.dur.ac.uk/classics/

Applicants must demonstrate research excellence in Roman History, with the ability to teach our students to an exceptional standard, and to engage fully in the services, citizenship, and values of the University. A commitment to MA teaching, doctoral supervision, and postdoctoral mentoring is essential. The ability and willingness to teach EITHER Greek OR Latin at all levels is essential, and the ability to teach BOTH Greek AND Latin at all levels is desirable: the Department takes pride in the linguistic training it offers, including very successful programmes of learning the classical languages ab initio.

The University provides a working and teaching environment which is inclusive and welcoming and where everyone is treated fairly with dignity and respect. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate these key principles as part of the assessment process. Applicants must have a good first degree and a PhD (completed or under examination) in Roman History or a related subject.

Candidates must be clear whether they are applying for the post at Grade 7 or Grade 8.

The Gerald D.

Candidates will be expected to demonstrate a broad understanding of the history and theory of the design disciplines, as well as strong teaching, scholarship, and leadership abilities. We particularly encourage candidates with an interest in multi-disciplinary research and collaborations.

The Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design offers its students and faculty a platform of integrated disciplines—Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Industrial Design—from which to negotiate the complexities of contemporary design practice. Our programs foster an environment of creative critical inquiry into design culture and the social, political, and material contexts in which design is practiced today. Situated in Houston, the fourth largest city in the U.S., the Hines College offers an exceptional laboratory for exploring the problems and potentials of design in relation to contemporary urban, territorial, and global concerns.

Candidates will be expected to teach a course load of two classes per semester, including graduate/undergraduate survey courses and seminars, and to maintain an active publication and research agenda. The history/theory program is currently expanding and transforming its curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and the candidate is expected to participate actively in this process through new course offerings and revisions to existing courses. While the candidate’s scholarly agendas are expected to center on historical topics from the nineteenth century onwards, the teaching package may include survey courses ranging from 1500 to the present.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in the discipline or its equivalent. A strong record of publication and engaged participation in scholarly discourses on design is expected.

The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture (UTSOA) invites applicants for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in the history and theory of architecture to begin August 2020. We seek candidates who can both teach core architectural history courses and expand the program’s geographic and/or methodological focus in the building of comparative frameworks. We are less concerned with the specific “region” of focus (whether it be the U.S., Europe, the Global South, etc.) and more concerned that teaching and research projects engage with where architectural history as a field is headed. Candidates working on 19th and 20th century topics should underscore why and how the architectures, landscapes, and cities they study have vital and relevant stories to tell that can help guide budding historians and practitioners to make future built environment related choices. 

A PhD in the History/Theory of Architecture or a PhD in a closely related field completed by the start date is required. Candidates must demonstrate both a robust record of scholarly achievement and directions for future research. Candidates will be asked to contribute to core curriculum in Architectural History and encouraged to develop elective courses related to their research and interests. UTSOA has approximately 700 Architecture, Preservation, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Community & Regional Planning, and Interior Design students. We encourage historians to seize opportunities to collaborate across disciplines.

All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply. UTSOA history faculty currently address a broad range of issues. We nurture open dialogue and welcome debates and perspectives that challenge our particular points of view. We are open to expanding our School’s programs in new historical fields and geographies.

The College of Visual Arts and Design (CVAD) at the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton assumes a critical role in building our region into a world-renowned center for culture and education. CVAD fosters creative futures for its diverse student population and the area through rigorous art history scholarship and arts-based education and arts- and client-based design and studio practice and research. The art history program offers a BA and MA in art history as well as a new 4+1 program combining the degrees in a five-year sequence. Many MA in art history students concurrently enroll in the Certificate in Museum Education offered through CVAD’s art education program. The college oversees several significant collections that provide an educational resource for students and faculty. These include the Texas Fashion Collection, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and documentation of historically significant fashion, and the CVAD Galleries, which stewards a permanent collection of modern and contemporary art in various media by American, European and Latin American artists, with a focus on works on paper in serial and artist books.

Established in 1890, UNT is one of the nation’s largest public research universities with approximately 39,000 students. Ranked a Tier One research university through the Carnegie Classification, UNT is a catalyst for creativity, fueling progress, innovation and entrepreneurship for the North Texas region and the state. As the university has grown, so has its reach and impact. UNT graduated 9,100 students last year from its 14 colleges and schools and offers 103 bachelor’s, 86 master’s and 37 doctoral degree programs, many nationally and internationally recognized.

UNT is located in Denton, which is part of the fourth largest metro area in the U.S. and is equidistant from Dallas and Fort Worth. The small community of 113,000 residents is home to two universities and offers a friendly, creative, and intellectual environment. The town boasts an eclectic array of restaurants, bars, shops, music venues, and festivals that have drawn praise from national publications. The Huffington Post listed Denton as the “number one emerging cultural hotspot in Texas.”

Denton is located just north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, which provides opportunities in relationship to a diverse array of galleries, artists, and cultural institutions, including the Dallas Museum of Art, Kimbell Art Museum, Crow Museum of Asian Art, and Nasher Sculpture Center. A 2016 study by the UNT Economics Research Group found that creative industries contribute approximately $34 billion annually to the region, including 205,000 in total jobs, making the Dallas-Fort Worth creative economy the largest in the state of Texas and among the six largest nationwide.

University of California, Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, CA) - TT Assistant Professor, Europe in the Age of Colonialism and Resistance (1500-1950)[edit | edit source]

The History of Art and Visual Culture Department (havc.ucsc.edu) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for the tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Europe in the Age of Colonialism and Resistance, 1500-1950. Across the centuries, European nations colonized much of the globe, impacting indigenous traditions and also changing European culture in fundamental ways. We seek a scholar whose research considers some aspect of Europe’s colonial agenda and its consequences, examining European art, architecture, and/or visual culture in ways that complicate the picture of European expansion and challenge the so-called Western episteme from a global perspective. Applicants must be capable of teaching a wide range of courses (large lecture to seminar) at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The department faculty support the investigation of art and visual culture from a variety of theoretical perspectives in the cultures of Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific Islands.

The History of Art and Visual Culture Department is in the Division of the Arts, which also includes Departments of Art, Film and Digital Media, Music, Theater Arts, and the M.F.A. Program in Digital Arts & New Media. There are opportunities for scholarly and teaching connections in these areas, as well as with colleagues and programs across the campus. The campus operates on a schedule of three 11-week quarters per academic year. In accordance with the department’s workload policy, faculty members are required to offer the equivalent of 5 five-unit courses per year (which normally means teaching 4 courses over three quarters and carrying out other academic and service responsibilities), effectively advise and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, actively engage in research, and undertake administrative service for the department, affiliated college, campus, and university. The ability to contribute significantly to graduate education and the mentoring of graduate students is highly desirable.

We have a strong undergraduate major and a dynamic Visual Studies Ph.D. program. Our division is enjoying faculty growth, significant fundraising successes, research centers, and innovative programming through the Institute of the Arts and Sciences. The Arts Division supports faculty research through the Arts Research Institute (http://arts.ucsc.edu/ari) and the Arts Dean's Fund for Excellence (http://arts.ucsc.edu/funding/arts-deans-fund-for-excellence); the campus supports research and teaching with grants awarded by the Committee on Research (https://senate.ucsc.edu/committees/cor-committee-on-research/index.html), the Committee on Teaching (https://senate.ucsc.edu/committees/cot-committee-on-teaching/index.html), and other groups.

We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing women and minorities who are underrepresented in higher education careers (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background), and who have experience in equity, diversity, and inclusion with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

NOTES:



The University of Texas at San Antonio, Assistant or Associate Professor, Latin American Eco-criticism[edit | edit source]

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has embarked on a focused cluster hiring plan to recruit top-tier researchers in interdisciplinary areas of knowledge that will advance the study of Social and Environmental Challenges in Latin America.  Home to some of the largest bioreserves in the world and some of world’s most important biodiversity hotspots, Latin America’s environments are undergoing rapid transformation due to climate change, environmental degradation, and politico-socio-economic transformations across the region.  These forces are coupled in complex ways, and understanding the coupled dynamics of society, climate, and environment in Latin America presents a grand challenge that is fertile ground for transdisciplinary research.

To address this challenge, UTSA is recruiting a cohort of researchers from different disciplines whose research centers on environmental degradation, climate change, and the associated socioeconomic and political challenges and transformations in Latin America and the US-Mexico borderlands. The goal is to foster collaborative and transdisciplinary research to understand and confront the emerging social and environmental challenges facing the region.  This targeted cluster hire will build on and leverage our established research portfolio, propelling our ability to tackle and solve previously unsolvable problems. Hires are expected to build their own unique programs of research, as well as to collaborate with other hires in this cluster and with colleagues in their home department, college, and other colleges.

As part of this cluster, we seek to hire a tenured or tenure-track scholar (Assistant or Associate Professor) in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and/or the Department of Art and Art History. We seek a scholar who applies eco-criticism approaches to the literature, visual arts, and/or the media to address topics such as colonialism and human rights in colonial or contemporary Latin America and/or the Caribbean. The ideal candidate will also create transdisciplinary collaborative synergies among faculty hired as part of this cluster and existing faculty in the Departments of Art and Art History, Modern Languages and Literatures, English, and History, among others.  We would particularly welcome a scholar who complements current faculty in terms of theoretical perspectives, methods, media of study, and time and region of focus.

Required Qualifications: Ph.D. in Art History, Spanish, Latin American Studies, or related field in hand at time of application; theoretically motivated research; an established record of teaching, research, and service appropriate to rank; demonstrated interest and experience in collaborative teaming and/or transdisciplinary research; desire and ability to contribute to graduate and undergraduate programs and to educate and mentor students from a culturally diverse urban population.

For consideration as Associate Professor, candidates must have a strong record of publication, evidence of effective teaching, and substantial experience in department, university, and professional service.  Tenure is contingent on Board of Regents approval.

Preferred Qualifications: Native or near-native fluency in Spanish and/or Portuguese; potential for securing external funding; experience in cross-disciplinary areas of inquiry that intersect art history, literature studies, media studies, cultural studies, linguistics, translation studies, and/or film studies. Preferred candidates will be able to successfully teach and mentor diverse, underserved students, including first-generation students, students of color and non-traditional students, and have the ability to contribute to the university’s commitment to inclusive excellence as a Hispanic Serving Institution.

Responsibilities include: teaching introductory, upper division, and graduate courses; research and service in a program that offers B.A. and M.A. degrees; maintaining an active research agenda; leadership in developing new lines of research and teaching; contributing to the university and community through service and outreach.

Applicants must submit:

a letter of application describing research, teaching, and service accomplishments and goals that includes a discussion of the role that diversity and inclusion play in an academic environment; please indicate the rank for which you wish to be considered 

  • a CV
  • up to three representative publications, which could include dissertation chapters
  • teaching evaluations if available
  • names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers of three references. 

Materials must be submitted on-line https://jobs.utsa.edu/postings/14346.  Please reference posting TT20190062P. Review of applications begins November 1, 2019.  For full consideration, applicants should submit their materials by that date.  Inquiries may be directed to the Cluster Search Committee Chair, Dr. Jason Yaeger (jason.yaeger@utsa.edu). 

Applicants selected for interviews must be able to show proof that they will be eligible and qualified to work in the United States by time of hire. UTSA is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
