THE DEPARTMENT OF ART at the University of Memphis invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Early Modern (1400-1700) European art history, beginning August 2020. Expertise in Renaissance art and visual cultures (Italy or Northern Europe) is preferred.
Candidates should be prepared to teach courses in Renaissance and Baroque art, as well as the undergraduate survey courses in World Art II (Renaissance to Contemporary Art). Candidates must have a record of, or potential for, substantial peer-reviewed research and publication. Of particular interest are candidates whose work explores intercultural encounters and the engagement of European art and visual culture with global networks of movement and exchange. We strongly encourage applications from racial and ethnic minorities, women, and individuals historically under-represented in the profession. A PhD in Art History must be in hand by May of 2020.
The successful candidate will teach a 3-2 course-load that includes classes in the undergraduate World Art surveys; undergraduate and graduate courses in Early Modern Art (Renaissance/Baroque Art in Italy and Northern Europe); and courses developed within the candidate’s particular area of specialization. Participation on MA thesis committees will also be required. Service responsibilities include committee work, academic advising, curriculum development, and service related to the university’s strategic goals towards institution-wide diversity and inclusiveness. The successful candidate will maintain a committed and sustained record of research and publication in Early Modern art history and visual culture. Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
