Berlin, February 2 – May 22, 2015 Application deadline: Nov 11, 2014

Part-Time Lecturer in Art History: « Ancient Art in Berlin: Discovering  the Collections of Museum Island »

New York University (NYU) Berlin is seeking a part-time lecturer to  teach an undergraduate course entitled « Ancient Art in Berlin:  Discovering Museum Island » in the Spring 2015 semester.

NYU Berlin is one of New York University’s global study-away sites and  provides US and other international students with the opportunity to  spend a semester studying in Berlin while earning credits towards their  degree. The program is fully integrated into NYU’s curriculum and  designed for BA students in the social sciences, arts and humanities  who want to earn credit in their major – including sociology, history, politics, art, art history, German, European studies, and environmental studies – while having a transformative experience abroad. Most courses  are taught in English. Seminars and lectures take place at the academic  center located within the complex of the Kulturbrauerei in Prenzlauer  Berg and at NYUB’s art studio in Kreuzberg. The program size is 80-100  students per semester.

Position: NYU Berlin has created a study abroad program of exceptional quality  for its students. We are seeking a part-time lecturer for the Spring  2015 semester (February to May) for an art history course on the  ancient art collections held at Berlin’s Museum Island. The trio of  museums at the heart of inquiry consists of the Pergamon Museum, the  Neues Museum (and Egyptian Museum, within it) and the Altes Museum.  Collectively, their early artifacts in various media will introduce  students to an almost encyclopedic chronological and regional range of  ancient visual cultures. The Bode Museum, notably featuring the  Münzkabinett (« coin cabinet ») within its diverse holdings, will also be  visited and studied. Field trips taking advantage of all these rich  collections thus make up an essential part of the course. The course  meets once per week. The sessions are not a straight lecture but a  mixture between seminar, field trip and lecture.

Requirements for Interested Candidates:

•    Doctorate in art history or another relevant discipline.

•    Record of research and publications in the field.

•    Minimum of three years teaching experience at university level.

•    German work-permit and tax number at the time of application,  covering the entire period of the employment.

•    Preference will be given to candidates who have studied in the US  and/or have international teaching experience.

Terms and conditions will be discussed with the successful applicant.  Applications will be reviewed jointly by NYU Berlin and NYU New York.  Interviews of short-listed candidates will be held in person at NYU  Berlin and online/by phone with New York faculty.

Please submit your  application by November 11th – in the form of a C.V., cover letter,  scans of degree certificates, as well as any available references and  student evaluations (preferably all documents in one PDF file) – via  e-mail to Dr. Gabriella Etmektsoglou ( and Dr. Roland  Pietsch ( at NYU Berlin, who will forward the application  to the relevant departments in New York.
