The Department of History of Art & Architecture, University of California, Santa Barbara, invites applications a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Art and Architecture of the Medieval World beginning July 1, 2015.
We seek a colleague whose research makes new contributions to the understanding of cultural interchange in the medieval world. While the candidate’s research may focus on any medium and scale of analysis--painting, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, architecture, and cities—we will expect the successful candidate to demonstrate a facility in exploring diverse media to engage larger issues related to social, political, and technological change in the medieval world.
Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in the history of art and/or architecture or a related discipline, with demonstrated excellence in research and teaching to complement the department’s global strengths in art and architecture and its Architecture & Environment Emphasis (see http://www.arthistory.ucsb.edu/). UC Santa Barbara encourages interdisciplinary studies and there will be opportunities for contributing to an Environmental Humanities initiative on campus, and for engaging with departments such History, and the Medieval Studies program. The successful candidate will be expected to teach a wide variety of courses ranging from undergraduate surveys to advanced graduate seminars. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service.
