The Humanities Collegiate Division at the University of Chicago is now accepting applications from historians of architecture or the built environment for a four-year, non-renewable, postgraduate appointment as a Collegiate Assistant Professor, who will teach in the Department of Art History. Collegiate Assistant Professors are members of the College Faculty whose primary responsibility is to teach in the Core Curriculum, the College's general education program.
The position is open to those who will have completed all requirements for their PhD degree no later than August 31, 2019. Candidates must demonstrate excellence in original scholarship as well as in teaching. An ability to incorporate studio teaching into their courses is desirable.
In most years, Collegiate Assistant Professors will teach two undergraduate courses in each of three quarters, distributed across several areas of the Art History Core curriculum. A minimum of two courses per year will be in the team-taught "Introduction to Art and Architecture" (ARTH 10100). The remaining, small seminar-style, courses may include multiple sections of an introductory survey in the Collegiate Assistant Professor's own field; of an introductory design studio for liberal arts students; or of a thematic discussion-based "Art in Context" course, designed to introduce students to art-historical thinking through a focused examination of a particular set of materials.
The Collegiate Assistant Professor will be a member of the Society of Fellows in the Liberal Art. S/he will be eligible for one quarter of research leave, typically in the third year of appointment, and may be eligible to apply for a second research leave in the fourth and final year of appointment.
