Faculty of History, Department of History of Art, Littlegate House, St Ebbe’s St, Oxford
The Department of History of Art is seeking a highly motivated and inspirational person to join a thriving academic community of art historians and bring exciting perspectives to the teaching and study of the History of Art at Oxford. This is a joint appointment: the person appointed to the Associate Professorship will also be appointed to a Tutorial Fellowship at St Peter’s College and will be a member and trustee of its Governing Body. In time, the post holder may be appointed to a lectureship at a further college by agreement between the Faculty, St Peter’s College and that college (more details in ‘Duties’, below).
They seek applicants whose scholarship focuses on the seventeenth and/or eighteenth centuries. We are particularly interested in candidates with a global outlook who can bring innovation to the way art history is conceived and practiced. A goal of the search is to increase the diversity of the teaching in our Department, and we therefore welcome applicants who can offer frames of reference that are historically under-represented in the discipline of art history. We particularly encourage applications from women and people of colour. The successful applicant will join an academic community that places the highest value on rigorous inquiry and encourages a range of perspectives, experiences, and ideas to inform and stimulate intellectual challenge, engagement, and exchange.
