Applications are invited for the Terra Foundation for American Art Visiting Professorship for the 2021/22 academic year at Oxford University. This post, which is generously funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art, will be based in the History of Art Department (which is part of Oxford’s History Faculty) and is offered in association with a Visiting Fellowship at Worcester College.
This post provides an exciting opportunity to build on long-term research networks, encourage international collaboration, and inspire a new generation of American art academics and curators by further embedding the subject into Oxford’s research communities and its graduate and undergraduate curricula. The successful candidate will engage in advanced study and original research in the history of American art, give a series of four public lectures, and organise a study day. They will also teach one undergraduate and one graduate course, supervise a small number of Master’s theses, and contribute to the Department’s general teaching and administration.
The successful candidate will hold a doctorate and teaching experience in a relevant field, have a strong research record and/or research potential with a reputation as an international authority within the specialism and a publication record at a standard that will contribute to and enhance the national and international profile of the History of Art Department and History Faculty.
Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
The post is fixed term for 12 months (or until 31 August 2022 whichever is sooner). The deadline for applications is 12 noon (UK time) on Friday 11th December 2020. Interviews are expected to take place via Microsoft Teams at the beginning of January 2021.
