Assistant Professor, The University of Texas at Dallas
Application deadline: Jan 30, 2022

The School of Arts and Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas invites applications for a tenure-system appointment in Art History at the level of Assistant Professor. Though the field of expertise is open to any area of pre-modern art and architecture, there is a preference for applications from scholars specializing in the art and architecture of the Islamic World, or other non-western fields. Teaching obligations will include global surveys of Art History that range from ancient to contemporary art, as well as undergraduate and graduate level courses in the candidate’s specialization area. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in the activities and programs of the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History at UT Dallas and show a willingness to work closely with local museums and collections. In addition to teaching, the position requires an active agenda of research and publication.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong commitment to principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion in teaching, research, and service. We are seeking candidates who have demonstrated ability (or for entry-level applicants, the potential) to lead and/or work collaboratively in research teams comprised of individuals of diverse backgrounds, skills, and perspectives.

Applicants should upload a cover letter; curriculum vitae; statements of teaching philosophy and research interests; teaching evaluations (if available); a writing/publication sample; a statement of diversity and inclusion (outlining how you have contributed to, or plan to contribute to, diversity, inclusion, and equity); and the full contact information for at least three academic or professional references.
