Job Details

The Department of Art History at Skidmore College invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor to teach courses on early modern European art in a global context between the 15th and 18th centuries. We seek a candidate who can offer introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in their areas of specialization. This position carries a teaching load of five courses over the academic year that will appeal broadly to a liberal arts college student population. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose courses closely explore how European art engaged global networks of movement, migration, trade, exchange, and intercultural encounter. We are particularly interested in candidates from under-represented backgrounds who can add to the diversity and excellence of our academic community through their teaching, research, and service.

PhD should be completed or expected by Fall 2022. Applicants must possess an established record of independent teaching experience. The application must include:
• a cover letter
• CV
• three sample syllabi (preferably at different curricular levels)
• three letters of recommendation
• a statement explaining how the candidate’s courses and pedagogy would engage questions of cultural diversity and social justice, and would foster active learning, inclusive discussion, and global awareness. Please provide specific examples.

Skidmore is a highly selective liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs, New York with curricular strengths across the humanities, arts, social sciences, and natural sciences. Our approximately 2,500 undergraduate students come from almost 50 states and over 40 countries. Art History is a collegial department invested in pedagogical innovation and ongoing curricular development.

Review of applications will begin on Monday, March 21st, and continue until the position is filled.

CREATIVE THOUGHT MATTERS.

Organization

Skidmore is a highly selective liberal arts college with a reputation for its creative approaches to just about everything. With its relatively small size and student-faculty ratio, the College is a close-knit academic community. Skidmore is known for its faculty of teacher-scholars devoted to the instruction and mentoring of undergraduates—approximately 2,400 talented men and women from some 47 states and 46 countries.

A great education is all about putting academic theory and creative expression into practice. That’s what our founder, Lucy Skidmore Scribner, believed. Skidmore’s not an ivory tower. Never has been. Never will be. It’s a place where faculty and students work together, then figure out how to use what they’ve learned to make a difference in the world. This practical focus often leads to cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, where students carry multiple majors, student-faculty research is common, and internships and community service are standard. It also leads to interesting and unusual combinations of activities, frequently woven into an intellectual passion.

If this kind of experience resonates with you, why not take a closer look at Skidmore?
