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.

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.
