The Department of Art at Vassar College invites applications for a full-time, tenure track position in the art and architecture of the medieval world, circa 400-1400 CE, at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin fall semester 2020.
All specializations within the medieval world will be considered; preference will be given to candidates with expertise in multiple regions and/or cultures, including the premodern Islamic world, Medieval Europe, and Byzantium. A candidate whose work engages with the digital humanities is desirable.
The successful candidate should preferably have a Ph.D. in art history or allied field in hand at the time of appointment. The successful candidate will teach courses on medieval art and architecture at all levels of the art history curriculum and contribute to Vassar's multidisciplinary programs, including the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program. The teaching load in the first year is four courses, and in subsequent years is either five courses or four classroom courses plus one "intensive," a small enrollment, closely mentored experience for undergraduates.
Vassar faculty are committed teacher/scholars who bring research and creative discovery to life for students in classrooms, labs, and studios and in individually mentored projects. Faculty are expected to teach broadly in the curricula of their departments and/or programs, advise students, and serve on college-wide and departmental committees.
