The Newcomb Art Department of Tulane University in New Orleans seeks an art historian of the Italian Renaissance who has full command of the major developments in art and architecture in Italy during the 15th–16th centuries. We are looking to complement the research and teaching profiles of existing Tulane faculty in medieval Italy, northern baroque, and colonial Latin America. PhD in hand and teaching experience required.
The Newcomb Art Department is one of the largest and most active departments in the School of Liberal Arts at Tulane. Faculty members enjoy a very collegial environment, flexibility in course offerings, accomplished and engaged students, and small class sizes. Travel and research funds are available. The teaching load is 2 courses a semester, to include one semester of the two-semester introductory survey (occasionally) as well as upper-level lecture courses and undergraduate/graduate seminars in one’s specialty. Expectations also include undergraduate advising, graduate mentoring, and participation in departmental and university service.
Please submit a letter of application outlining teaching and research interests, a curriculum vitae, a list of possible classes you would like to teach with short descriptions, and the names and contact information of three referees. The review of applications will begin January 9, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. All applications must be submitted electronically through Inter-folio at the following address: https://apply.interfolio.com/38072
