The Department of Art History at Rice University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the history of medieval art and/or architecture, broadly defined. We are interested in scholars working on art from roughly 400-1400, without restriction to culture or region. Successful candidates will have a record of publication and service commensurate with their career stage and be alert to diverse methodological approaches to the study of art and/or architecture from this period.
Scholars working within transcultural frameworks are particularly encouraged to apply, as are those whose work might intersect with that being done in interdisciplinary programs and centers at Rice, including (but not limited to) those in Medical Humanities, Medieval & Early Modern Studies, Environmental Studies, African and African American Studies, and the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality.
A PhD in Art History or related field is required by the position’s start on July 1, 2023. To apply, please submit a letter of interest, CV, three letters of reference, and two samples of scholarly work online via Interfolio. For fullest consideration, application materials should be submitted by November 15, 2022, via Interfolio: https://apply.interfolio.com/112101.
