Adjunct Position Art History (Northern European Art)
The Department of Art at Vassar College invites applications for an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Art History, with a specialization in Northern European Art, 1400-1700, and a secondary interest in Museum Studies and the History of Collecting. Vassar College is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum, and promoting an environment of equality, inclusion, and respect for difference. Candidates who can contribute to this goal through their teaching, research, advising, and other activities are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in this area. Individuals from groups whose underrepresentation in the American professoriate has been severe and longstanding are particularly encouraged to apply.
The position is for the academic year 2018-19. It entails teaching two intermediate lecture courses on Northern European art, 1400-1700, one of which may serve as a Museum Studies class; one seminar on a specialized topic in Northern European art; and contributing lectures on Northern European art in our introductory team taught art history survey course.
The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of the appointment. We seek scholars who can teach dynamically in an undergraduate liberal arts setting and who would welcome the opportunity to participate in the development of the art history curriculum.
Candidates should provide a letter of application, C.V., official graduate school transcript, a statement of teaching philosophy and the three references with full contact information.
Vassar College is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and is strongly and actively committed to diversity within its community. Applications from members of historically underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.
