Utah State University (UT) - TT Asst. Professor - Art Historian - Modernist/AmericanistEdit

The Art Department at Utah State University seeks qualified candidates for a tenure-track position as an assistant professor in art history with a specialization in modern and/or American art. The successful candidate will demonstrate teaching experience in both western art history survey and upper-division courses, excellence in research, and a commitment to developing a small but promising art history and visual studies program in the context of a multi-disciplinary art department in the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University.

The department currently offers undergraduate degrees in art education, art history, ceramics, graphic design, interior design, painting and drawing, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. A small number of MFA students are admitted each year to selective programs in the art practice fields. The college is committed to excellence across its four units: theater, music, art and design, and the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art. USU is known as a regional hub for the arts, and is the home to the state’s only resident string quartet, an annual opera festival, and one of the largest fine-arts museum collections in the Intermountain West.

USU has a strong commitment in its mission to both international education and undergraduate research: the art department alone is home to four study-abroad programs, and USU’s office of undergraduate research is the second oldest in the nation, following only MIT. The university is located in northeastern Utah’s Cache Valley, eighty miles from Salt Lake City, and close to some of the Intermountain West region’s many National Parks, ski areas, recreational opportunities, and cultural resources.

Responsibilities

As USU is a research-intensive and extensive institution, the assistant professor in art history will be responsible for maintaining an active program of research, presentation, and publication. This will be the primary field of evaluation for the probationary period and for advancement in rank and tenure. Teaching responsibilities include a 2/3 course load covering an introductory art history survey of western art from the Renaissance to the modern period, upper division lecture/discussion and seminar courses in her or his area of research specialization, and the MFA seminar on contemporary issues in art criticism and theory. Both classroom and online (distance) teaching are expected.

NOTES:

This is a **rigged** search to hire a current, long-term VAP. Don't waste your time.

  • If I had a penny for every time someone cried "rigged search," when the search turned out not to be so, I'd have like fifty pennies. The perceived advantages of being a VAP (faculty know you, you're on home turf) are counter-balanced by the disadvantages (faculty know you, you're on home turf). Don't listen to the nay-sayers and the conspiracy theorists: apply, apply, and apply. 
  • While I generally agree with the above, as someone who now makes faculty hires (seen it from both sides) and as someone who knows a little something about this department in particular, I do not discount the "rigged" comment here. As in every case, nothing is black and white. But, in this case, the shades of gray all point to a "rigged" search. So, apply but know you are going up against this VAP who will give you a run for your money.
  • Let's not get too picky here: remember that the VAP may not accept the job if they offer it. All searches are dynamic until they are over.
  • As someone (not in ancient) who was the purported "inside" candidate for a TT job that I did not get, I cannot disagree more with the suggestion that such searches are “rigged.” Being an “inside candidate” carries with a number of positives, but an even larger number of negatives. All searches ultimately come down to that terribly squishy notion of “fit” between candidate and institution. It is foolish for anyone to think that an outcome can be preordained when it is predicated upon such fuzzy ideas.  
  • What a bizarre statement. Why wouldn't the VAP take the job? If s/he does, we should take heart that a long term VAP was finally hired. Se often VAPs, postdocs, lecturors, and adjuncts are exploited, paid poorly, and as the years roll by watch thier liklihood of landing a t.t. job take a nose dive. Sounds like U.F. is doing right by this VAP, as should more institutions.   
  • UPDATE, Fall 2015. Looks like this was correct. Rigged search.

Field experience in Egypt is desirable. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Primary teaching responsibilities include graduate classes in first and second year Middle Egyptian grammar and texts, undergraduate and graduate surveys and seminars in Egyptian art and archaeology, and World Art I, in a program emphasizing a balance in research, teaching and service.

NOTES:

  • Anyone heard anything after CAA?
  • I have not been contacted and since CAA was so long ago, I am sure I won't. I am not surprised. During my CAA interview, the committee pointedly informed me that they really needed to "diversify" their department, in order to bring in more diverse students (numbers of students is apparently not an issue). That of course does not mean diversity in classes/ subjects. It means minority candidate. The other general Asian job this year went the same way. Tokens, tokens, get your tokens!  
  • Wrote to them asking if they had contacted folks for second round interviews, they said they would be contacting people at the end of the month (March).

University of Essex (UK) - Lectureship / Senior Lectureship / Reader in Art History (1300-1850)Edit

The School of Philosophy and Art History at the University of Essex is pleased to invite applications for a post with the rank of Lecturer (with eligibility for permanency), Senior Lecturer, or Reader. We are well represented in 20th and 21st century art and visual culture, and particularly seek someone with expertise in the history of art, architecture, and/or visual culture between the dates of 1300 and 1850.

You will be expected to carry out a vigorous programme of independent research, to contribute broadly to teaching and supervision activities within the School, and to participate in the usual range of administrative duties. Essential qualifications for the post include: a PhD (or one awaiting examination) in Art History or a related discipline, or equivalent professional experience; evidence of research excellence; experience of teaching in a higher education environment or the demonstrable potential for excellence in teaching.

Essex Art History is part of the School of Philosophy and Art History, a community of academics who share a common project of researching and teaching art and ideas. We were ranked in the top ten in the last UK Research Assessment Exercise, and eleventh nationally in the Complete University Guide 2015. We offer a wide range of courses for undergraduates, taught postgraduates and doctoral research students in an environment that emphasises collaboration and collegiality for both research and teaching. The University is home to the largest public collection of Latin American art in Europe (http://www.escala.org.uk ) and a campus gallery called Art Exchange. We also have strong links with regional visual arts organisations including Firstsite (http://www.firstsite.uk.net ) in Colchester.

Essex Art History features a dynamic group of art historians who investigate the production and reception of images and built environments, across cultures and media from the early modern period to the present. While we adopt a diverse range of approaches in our writing and teaching, our work demonstrates a commitment to three key ideas:

1. The social and political implications of art, architecture, and visual culture.

All forms of visual culture – from paintings to building interiors, from medical imagery to tattoos – emerge from and contribute to the mediation of social and political forces. Scholars at Essex investigate the role of art and visual culture in the assertion, negotiation, and contestation of power in relation to a variety of topics, including the planning of tyrants’ cities in the Italian Renaissance; the entanglement of the historical avant-garde with the politics of Fascism; and the production of objects by contemporary activists in pursuit of social change. Throughout our work, we emphasise issues of autonomy, agency, dissent, and the contestation of the public realm.

2. Space, place, and locale.

Art historians at Essex are strongly concerned with the conceptualisation, production, experience, and representation of spaces and places. We investigate topics that include the ideologies that drive urban change; architectural metaphors in software design; the fusion of real and imaginary places in religious paintings; the design of exhibition spaces and the implications of curatorial practice; and the varied locales and landscapes of the county of Essex itself.

3. Art produced beyond its historic institutions.

We are committed to bringing the approaches of art history into contact with other disciplines and discourses in order to interrogate objects of our shared visual and material culture, including body art, medical illustrations, wax casts, activist placards, and Fascist floor mosaics. Our trans disciplinary approach facilitates critical engagement with an array of works of art and visual culture that stand both within and beyond the traditional canons of art history.

Brown University (RI) - Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Latin American/Brazilian Art/ArchitectureEdit

The Departments of the History of Art and Architecture, Hispanic Studies, History, Portuguese and Brazilian Studies, John Carter Brown Library and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies invite applications for a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship offered by the Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown University for a term of two years beginning in July 2015. 

The particular sub-fields and time periods for this position are open to all Brazilian, Spanish Latin American, and Caribbean art, architecture and visual culture. Specialists in early modern, modern and contemporary are encouraged to apply. We are particularly interested in scholars who would approach the subject through non-traditional approaches to visual culture and the built environment, and who would capitalize on new theoretical models relating to gender and embodiment in traditional or contemporary art, urban planning, arts and cultural literacy in the construction of a Brazilian or Latin American social imaginary, contemporary art practices and their relationship to memory and tradition, and/or varied architectural responses to Western building techniques and ideologies. We can also envision courses that examine the historical dimensions of Brazilian, Spanish Latin American, and Caribbean cultures and their expression in art and architecture, as well as the conditions and experiences of artists developing their work in the contemporary Latin American post–colonial state.

Applicants will have received a Ph.D. within the past five (5) years from an institution other than Brown in the fields of Brazilian, Spanish Latin American or Caribbean art, architecture or visual culture. Cogut fellows will participate in the activities of the Center and teach two courses each year (cross-listed in each of our departments, as appropriate). The term of the fellowship is two years.

Stipend: $61,449 and $63,907 in the first and second years plus a $2,000 research fund.

Candidates should provide a letter of application and curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation.

University of Pittsburgh (PA) - Lecturer in Curatorial StudiesEdit

The Department of History of Art and Architecture (HAA) at the University of Pittsburgh and the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh (CMP) are strongly committed to excellence in research, and to inclusive curatorial and teaching practices that promote collaboration, diversity, and expanding our public outreach.  To further our leadership in these areas we seek to hire a Lecturer in Curatorial Studies who will work both as a scholar-teacher in HAA’s dynamic art history department and as a curator with the unique cross-disciplinary collections of the Carnegie Museums. This appointment is the result of a major grant given to HAA by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, for the purpose of creating a collaborative consortium between HAA and museums in the Pittsburgh region.  The appointment is for four years, starting September 1, 2015, and is outside the tenure stream, but may be renewable pending budget authorization. 

HAA and CMP are committed to the study and understanding of art and artifacts across the world from the ancient to the contemporary.  HAA has a strong record of research productivity in the arts and architecture of East Asia, South Asia, the ancient Mediterranean, Europe from the Middle Ages to the present, the Americas, and global contemporary art.  The department also has a highly innovative “Constellations” PhD program, an active University Art Gallery with its own curator, and a Visual Media Workshop that serves as a hub for Digital Humanities research and collaboration at the University of Pittsburgh: http://www.haa.pitt.edu. CMP encompasses four museums: Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum:http://www.carnegiemuseums.org. The Warhol is home to an internationally renowned collection of artworks by Andy Warhol, along with archival holdings of approximately 500,000 objects. The Museum of Art’s collection of more than 35,000 objects features a broad spectrum of visual arts, including painting and sculpture; prints and drawings; photographs; architectural casts, renderings, and models; decorative arts and design; and film, video, and digital imagery. It also houses the archive of nearly 80,000 negatives by photographer Charles “Teenie” Harris. The Natural History Museum’s collection comprises 22 million objects and scientific specimens used to broaden understanding of evolution, conservation, and biodiversity. Its anthropological collection of 1.6 million ethnological and historical specimens and archaeological artifacts includes major research collections from Central Africa, Asia (China and Japan), Australia, North America (Arctic, Southwest, Plains, Northwest Coast), and South America (Amazonia), as well as other notable collections.

We welcome applications from scholar-curators across the entire scope of our collections and areas of inquiry, from the disciplines of art history, anthropology, and material culture. We are particularly interested in attracting applicants who take innovative approaches to their field, and who are committed to connecting their area of specialty to larger intellectual frameworks that cut across fields and disciplines and that contribute in compelling ways to the broad mission of the public humanities.  HAA’s Constellations program was recently put into place with this goal in mind.  CMP has also undertaken parallel initiatives, such as establishing art-science “Nexus Projects” that leverage the museums’ collective assets and recruiting a Public Fellow through the American Council of Learned Societies. 

The successful candidate will have home bases in HAA and CMP.  The individual will teach one course per year in HAA’s thriving undergraduate museum studies program, which draws students not only from art history and studio arts, but also from history, anthropology, and other disciplines in the Arts & Sciences.  The Lecturer in Curatorial Studies will work collaboratively with students and faculty from HAA and other departments at the university interested in teaching and research with the collections at CMP; and will facilitate internships and other experiential learning opportunities for students.  The individual will also devote 50% of the position time serving as Assistant/Associate Curator (depending on qualifications) in CMP with a home base in one museum while helping to foster connections across CMP’s collections and programs.  S/he will be expected to contribute to one larger exhibition and/or to create smaller, experimental exhibitions, some of these working with undergraduates in HAA’s museum studies program, at a range of potential venues including CMP and the University Art Gallery.

PHD or equivalent combination of training and practice such as an MA/ MFA with related research, curatorial, and teaching experience is expected.  Applications are due no later than April 10, 2015 and should be sent electronically as a single PDF file to HAA Administrative Assistant, Molly Sabol at mks89@pitt.edu.  The file should have a cover letter that includes a research and teaching statement and discusses the applicant’s approach to museum curation and the opportunities afforded by this joint appointment.  It should also include a curriculum vitae, list of three references, brief teaching portfolio, description of the applicant’s museum experience, and a writing sample or publication.

Salary and benefits will be paid by the University of Pittsburgh; annual evaluations of the employee will be conducted by the Chair of HAA and the Chief Curator  (or equivalent) of the home museum at CMP. The University of Pittsburgh and CMP are Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employers.  We especially encourage applications from women, minorities, and underrepresented groups.
