Visiting Assistant Professor of Early Modern European Art and Architecture

  • Deadline: Feb 15, 2024
  • Amherst, MA

Amherst College seeks to appoint a scholar of early modern European art and architecture for a full-time, three-year visiting appointment at the rank of visiting assistant professor, beginning on July 1, 2024.

The committee will consider candidates of any concentration who will offer a broad range of introductory and upper-level courses. Applications from scholars whose teaching expands the dimensions of European early modern art and architecture to include cultural exchanges with African, American, and East Asian regions of the era are especially welcome.

The candidate will be expected to teach two courses in the fall and two courses in the spring. The position includes advising majors, supervising senior theses, and participating in other service work for the department. Given Amherst’s distinction as one of the most diverse liberal arts colleges in the country, successful candidates will demonstrate the ways in which they bring value to and will work toward supporting a broadly diverse community. The successful candidate will excel at teaching and mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual identity, and religion.

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in hand by the start of the appointment.

How to apply

An application letter (including brief descriptions of four possible courses), C.V., one sample syllabus, one writing sample, and names of three references must be submitted electronically.

Review of applications will begin on February 15, 2024, and will continue until the position is filled.
