Princeton University invites applications for the position of Director of the Index of Christian Art. The Director oversees all academic and administrative aspects of the Index and works collaboratively with a staff of scholars and professionals (currently, eight). He or she must take an active role in the development and implementation of an improved online database as well as increasing the number of its subscribers, while presiding over the ongoing process of digitizing the original Index files and supplementing them with new research. Responsibilities include the development and supervision of a variety of scholarly projects long associated with the Index, notably publications, conferences, and symposia (as well as the fundraising that such projects require); collaboration with both the Department of Art and Archaeology and the Program in Medieval Studies in such endeavors is assumed.
Candidates must hold a PhD in Medieval Art History or an advanced degree in a related field and have a record of relevant publications and professional experience. They must demonstrate experience with database management and the administration of the budget and finances for an academic unit, scholarly organization, or other non-profit organization. They must also be capable of building and maintaining effective relationships with academic programs and administrative offices at Princeton and other institutions.
For fullest consideration apply by October 15, 2014.
