|The Department of Fine Arts at Brandeis University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in the history of Modern and Contemporary Architecture to begin July 1, 2017. While the area of research specialization is open, candidates whose scholarship and teaching demonstrate a global perspective and an awareness of contemporary issues are especially welcome. The successful candidate will teach two courses per semester, including lectures on Modern and Contemporary Architecture, as well as upper-level thematic courses and seminars. Courses are expected to take advantage of the extraordinary architectural richness of the Boston area. A secondary area of teaching expertise that could expand the global scope of our curriculum (Middle Eastern/Islamic, Asian, or Latin American) would be a plus. Duties will include development of the curriculum in architectural history in the context of a vital undergraduate liberal arts program, which includes both art history and studio art, as part of a major research university. The faculty member will serve as the principal advisor for our recently launched Architectural Studies minor, which combines history and design (via studio art offerings). Endowed funds provide the opportunity to explore annually issues of modern and contemporary architecture through arranging guest lectures, symposia and/or other public events on campus. A PhD must be completed by the time of the appointment. Teaching experience beyond the TA level is required. A record of scholarly research and publication is desired.
Please submit a letter of application, current CV, representative writing sample/publication, sample syllabi, and three letters of recommendation (uploaded by the referees) to the Academic Jobs Online portal (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8147). Candidates who submit their materials by December 6 will be assured full consideration. Interviews of selected candidates will be conducted at the Annual Conference of the College Art Association in New York and, if need be, by Skype.
