The Department of Art and Art History at Bucknell University invites applications for a tenure-track position for a specialist in the history of art, architecture, and/or visual culture beginning fall 2022. The department seeks a candidate who demonstrates a strong commitment to undergraduate education. We will be hiring at the assistant professor level. We are interested in candidates who specialize in art produced before 1800 whose scholarship and/or teaching focuses on the arts of one or more of the following: Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, or other historically “nonwestern” cultures. The successful candidate will be expected to teach the first half of the two-semester survey of World Art, intermediate and advanced courses in their field of expertise, as well as courses that contribute to the college core curriculum. Such courses will complement our current offerings in modern and contemporary art. We encourage applicants whose research intersects with issues of race, gender, and sexuality.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Art History by the start of appointment (August 2022). In the online portal, applicants should submit a cover letter outlining their interest and qualifications; a C.V.; a statement of teaching philosophy; a statement of commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; and a writing sample (dissertation or another scholarly publication). Applicants should arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted separately. For additional information and to apply, please go to Bucknell’s career site (jobs.bucknell.edu).
