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 teaching experience, and all requirements for their Ph.D. must be completed by May 2022. The appointment requires a 2-2 teaching load (typically one lecture course and one seminar each semester), and includes an introductory course on Renaissance and Baroque art, intermediate level courses of broad interest to students, and seminars on topics of the candidate’s choosing. 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.

Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will contribute to a climate that supports students, faculty, and staff of all identities and backgrounds. We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented and/or marginalized identities to apply.

Familiarize yourself with Cornell’s COVID-19 workplace guidance as well as the university’s COVID-19 services and information.
