With the founding of HAA's Collecting Knowledge Pittsburgh consortium in 2015, the development of the Chancellor's Plan for Pitt (PDF) in 2016, and the University's ongoing construction of Community Engagement Centers,  successful applicants will also share our commitment to broadening the reach, scope, and impact of our scholarly work inside and outside the academy.





The department is strongly committed to outstanding instruction at both graduate and undergraduate levels. Applicants should therefore also be interested in teaching as an intellectual enterprise in its own right, and able to teach outside their immediate specialization.

This position is pending budgetary approval. PhD and teaching experience are required. In order to ensure full consideration, applications must be received by November 1, 2018 and should be sent electronically as a single PDF file to the department's Academic and Fiscal Manager, Ms. Karoline Swiontek (karoline@pitt.edu).

We seek a candidate with wide interests in the histories, theories, and methodologies of art history. We invite concentration in any area that complements the current strengths of our faculty which lie in the field of Italian Renaissance art and architecture. Possible fields of specialization include (but are not limited to) Dutch, Flemish, Spanish, German, French, and British art, and Italian Baroque. There is no limit to what a secondary field of interest might be. Applications are especially encouraged from candidates who work broadly within the time frame of 1400 to 1750, and/or across national and geographic borders to address large questions of cultural formation, artistic identity and practice, European and/or global networks of exchange, and the social, religious, political and philosophical significance of the visual arts in the early modern period in Europe.

Our small but excellent program benefits from strong institutional support and substantial resources, and we serve some hundred undergraduate majors and minors, and about twenty-five MA and PhD students. Faculty in this area profit from intellectual collaborations with our Departments of Romance Languages and Literatures, English, History, German, and Classics; a newly established graduate certificate in Early Modern Studies facilitates interdisciplinary exchange for faculty and graduate students alike. We also have access to outstanding museum resources in this field, and collaborate actively with curatorial colleagues both at the Saint Louis Art Museum, and the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum and the Special Collections division in the newly expanded Olin Library on campus.

Duties include teaching two courses a semester in areas of specialization at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

  • This search was conducted last year, 2017-18, and two years ago,2016-2017 . Here are the notes from 2016-2017:
  • This is a position at a Baptist University which clearly states that religion can be used a criteria in their search. Note that LBGTQIA applicants are not included in their list of anti-discrimination laws .
  • I was told during my interview, which lasted about five minutes, that they will only hire a practicing Christian.(12/3)
  • I was told the same - word of warning to the finalists yet to interviewed that you will be disqualified immediately if you are not a practicing Christian. Disingenuous of the search to not state this upfront, and a waste of their and applicants' time. The right to "lawfully consider religious practice as a criterion" is not the same as outright discrimination based on religion, which disqualifying candidates based on religious practice, in fact, is. (12/3)
  • OP here. I think they are legally allowed to do this and have been doing so since at least 2014. I know two other people who have had the exact same experience as you and me.

The Department of Art & Art History invites applications from distinguished scholars for a tenured, endowed Chair in the History of Modern and Contemporary Art. Applicants working in any area within this broad field are welcome. While the position is not limited by geographical focus, we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary scholars whose research, teaching and public engagement prioritize diverse perspectives and histories and who demonstrate an understanding of the experience of those under-represented in higher education. The candidate should aim to promote inclusivity and dialogue both within the classroom and the larger communities of the University and the city of Richmond. The University is conducting initiatives in the Arts and Humanities, developing a long-term vision for the School of Arts & Sciences and implementing a strategic plan and academic programs that focus on inclusivity and academic excellence, racial justice and community-based learning. We are interested in individuals, trained as art historians, who want to engage this crucial moment in the visual arts and who see their work as participating in a public conversation about the role of the arts at the University and in contemporary society.

Native American ArtEdit

University of New Mexico (Albuquerque, NM) - Assistant Professor of Native American ArtEdit

Probationary appointment leading to a tenure decision. 1.0 FTE. Service and committee work expected. The successful candidate will be expected to develop collaborative working relationships with Native American academic units and groups on campus, and with Indigenous communities off campus locally and in the surrounding region.

To date, this is the only program with full-time faculty in Pre-Hispanic Art, Spanish Colonial Art, Modern/Contemporary Latin American Art, Native American Art, U.S. and African American Art, and until recently, U.S. Latinx/Chicanx Art. Given the Indigenous presence across the Americas, Native American art overlaps with and is relevant to all of these other areas of specialization. Additionally, areas of study outside of Art History, both in the Department of Art and the College of Fine Arts, intersect with Native American art history, such as Land Arts of the American West, Pueblo Pottery, Studio Ceramics, Art and Ecology, and Ethnomusicology.

The longstanding presence of Native Pueblos and their cultural impact in the region make this area an ideal location for the study of Native history, culture, and art, both historical and living. Also, the presence of museums and community centers, such as the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque and the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, and including other nearby centers, such as Sky City Cultural Center and Haak’u Museum at Acoma Pueblo, among others, are invaluable resources not found anywhere else.  Qualifications MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Ph.D. in the history of Native American Art or related discipline by the time of appointment. One year of University level teaching experience a instructor of record.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: Demonstrated ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Native American Art History.

Knowledge of current technologies and applications to teaching. Collegiality.
