The Department of History of Art and Visual Studies at Cornell University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position in Renaissance and Baroque art (1450-1700 CE) with specialization in Europe and interests in the global dimensions of the era. Applicants must have their Ph.D. in hand by July 1, 2021 and teaching experience.

Candidates should be deeply familiar with early modern Italian and European art and its entanglements with the rise of globalization, colonialism, and imperial expansion, and be conversant with interdisciplinary methodologies. Responsibilities include undergraduate and graduate teaching and advising and service to the department and the university. Applications must include a cover letter, CV, writing sample, a statement of contribution to diversity, equity and inclusion, and three letters of recommendation.
