The Art History Department at Hamilton College invites applications for a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor in modern Architectural History, beginning July 1, 2017.
The Department seeks candidates prepared to teach a range of architectural history courses within the framework of the Department’s broad art history curriculum. Candidates should demonstrate their ability in three areas: to engage with transnational connections in modern and contemporary architecture; to contribute to interdisciplinary initiatives in environmental and/or urban studies; and, to expand the Department’s curriculum in a secondary art history field that complements our current offerings.
We are especially interested in candidates who can demonstrate their experience in teaching or working with diverse student populations. Your cover letter should address the ways in which you incorporate issues of diversity in your teaching, scholarship, and/or service.
A completed Ph.D. in Art History is expected by the start of employment. The strongest candidates will have college teaching experience, a record of active scholarly engagement in their field, and evidence of creative, digital and/or interactive pedagogy.
At Hamilton College the academic year consists of two semesters. The teaching load for this position is four courses during the first year and five courses thereafter, including courses at the introductory level, the 200-level, as well as courses at the upper-level reflecting the candidate’s areas of specialization.
Please submit letter of application, curriculum vitae, dissertation abstract, proposed course syllabi, and a brief statement of teaching goals, and arrange for submission of three letters of recommendation to Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/36933. The application deadline is November 17, 2016.
