JOB: Asst Prof @ Johns Hopkins

The Department of the History of Art at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor appointments in Modern Art and Architectural History and Theory. We welcome scholars of the long twentieth century who pursue a critically inflected approach to the period’s global interconnections and engage with the philosophical and historical constructions of and challenges to modernism.

This search will result in two appointments. One will be a specialist in East and/or Southeast Asian modern art, including transnational and Asian American art history. One will be a specialist in any area of modernism, including transnational and diasporic art and architecture.

PhD in the History of Art or related discipline required at time of appointment. Candidates must demonstrate a strong research profile and a commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Candidates should submit a letter of application, a current CV, one article- or chapter-length sample of scholarly writing (published or in press), and three letters of reference. Applicants should state in their cover letter how, through their research approaches, teaching methodology, and/or public engagement, they can contribute to the university’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. All materials will be submitted online at https://apply.interfolio.com/97142. Review of applications will begin November 21, 2021.

Johns Hopkins is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunities Employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of, and applications from, women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching missions.

I am an art historian specializing in early twentieth century American art with particular focus on the history of photography, race and representation, and transatlantic modernist networks.
