We seek a scholar-teacher whose field of expertise is the art of the medieval period (c. 500-1300 C.E.), with a primary geographical focus on Europe or the Mediterranean basin.

Teaching responsibilities include five courses annually on a semester system. Outside of regular introductory and core courses, the selected candidate will have considerable freedom in setting his or her own curriculum. We are particularly interested in scholars who, in addition to teaching courses in their field of research, are comfortable teaching introductory-level classes in the history of Western art (ancient to medieval), which may be extended for a global perspective beyond Europe, the theory and methodology of the discipline, supervising undergraduate research, and participating more broadly in the university’s first-year seminars and in the community of scholars working in the Humanities at the University. In addition to maintaining an active research program, candidates are expected to advise students and participate in the governance of the University through service on committees.

Required qualifications: Ph.D. in Medieval Art and/or Architecture, which must be completed by the time of the appointment (July 1, 2017); commitment to undergraduate teaching at a liberal arts institution; evidence of excellence in scholarship; commitment to integrating new technologies in teaching.
