The art history department is searching for a medievalist, broadly defined. The period ranges from 400-1600. Geography is not limited to, Europe, and includes the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean rims, with a preference for candidates who have engaged in teaching or research involving encounters among cultures and religions. We seek a candidate with proven aptitude for undergraduate teaching and a strong commitment to scholarly research. Ideally, the candidate would have received major pre-dissertation grants or fellowships, have delivered papers at a number of professional conferences, and already published some work. The PhD dissertation must be finished by the time the appointment begins. Prior assistant-professor level teaching experience at another college or university could be an asset but is not expected. A PhD in Art History must be completed by the time of the appointment (July 1, 2017). Concentration on Europe, the Mediterranean rim, or the Indian Ocean rim are preferred.

Applications must be filed online and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the contact information of three references. Please apply to:
