Successful candidates will have a focus in one or more areas of relevance to the design disciplines offered at Parsons, which can be found on the website at parsons.edu. We are especially interested in interdisciplinary scholars who interrogate relationships of race and culture, the representation of race, and constructions of Blackness. We encourage scholars who bring a critical analysis to established approaches to design history and theory, including potentially the definition of design itself relative to other modes of practice and research.   Parsons School of Art and Design History and Theory offers master's degrees in Fashion Studies and in the History of Design and Curatorial studies. Additionally, the School offers courses in art and design history and theory that are taken by all undergraduate students at Parsons.

The goals of the initiative are to integrate a cohort of recent PhDs into the academic community at The New School by providing intellectual community, support, and mentorship through participation in the Mellon Transformative Seminar, an interdisciplinary seminar bringing together members of the community representing diverse scholarship across The New School. The appointment begins with a two-year post-doctoral fellowship during which time faculty will develop robust research projects and professional networks, with the option to teach one course in their home department. After the two-year period, faculty will move directly into a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Black Design Studies. After appointment to Assistant Professor, they will teach five courses (or their equivalent) per year in an area of their expertise, and will be homed in Parsons, within its School of Art and Design History and Theory (known as ADHT). The New School, a private university in New York City's Greenwich Village, serves undergraduate and graduate students across a range of fields with a commitment to bringing practices in design and social research to studying issues of our time and challenging students to become engaged citizens dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good.

University of Pittsburgh, Andrew W. Mellon Chair in African American Art[]

The Department of History of Art and Architecture (HAA) in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh seeks to appoint an accomplished historian of modern or contemporary African, African American, or African Diasporic art to the Andrew W. Mellon Chair, with a start date of September 1, 2022. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Associate or Full Professor with tenure. This endowed position provides an opportunity for its holder to undertake significant scholarly initiatives at the departmental, university, and extra-institutional level. It carries substantial research funds and a teaching load of three courses per year. Applicants are expected to have an accomplished record of research and teaching. The successful applicant will be asked to develop and teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, supervise doctoral students, undertake service, and participate actively in the life of the department and university. We seek a colleague whose teaching, research, mentorship, and leadership will contribute diverse perspectives and experiences to departmental and university initiatives.

The History of Art and Architecture Department is based in the Frick Fine Arts Building on the University of Pittsburgh's Oakland campus.  We recognize that the University of Pittsburgh occupies the ancestral land of the Adena culture, Hopewell culture, and Monongahela peoples, who were later joined by refugees of other tribes (including the Delaware, Shawnee, and Haudenosaunee), driven here from their homelands by colonizers. 17 full-time faculty members work together to serve the needs of our approximately 30 PhD students; post-baccalaureate Hot Metal Bridge diversity fellows; the 200 majors and minors in our programs in Architectural Studies, the History of Art and Architecture, and Museum Studies; and the hundreds of undergraduate students who enroll in our courses to fulfill General Education requirements. Our faculty includes specialists in the art and architecture of the Americas, East and South Asia, the Islamic Near East, and Europe, across centuries. Our interpretative approaches and lines of inquiry find intersections within our Constellations working groups on Agency, Environment, Identity, Mobility & Exchange, Temporalities, and Visual Knowledge. Our interest in the history of exhibitions and museums finds expression in our research, activities related to the Collecting Knowledge Pittsburgh consortium, and our Museum Studies major and minor. The University Art Gallery, Visual Media Workshop, and Fine Arts Library, all of which are housed within the Frick Fine Arts Building, function as situated learning environments for department members. The appointment of a senior scholar of modern or contemporary African, African American, or African Diasporic art will both strengthen and help connect our research and teaching missions at a crucial inflection point within the history of the department, the University, and the discipline.

To apply, visit join.pitt.edu. The requisition number for this position is 21006726.

Design History[]

California State University in San Jose (San Jose, CA) - TT Assistant Professor in History of Modern Design[]

The Department of Art & Art History and the Department of Design jointly invite applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Design History, with expertise in modern design and design-related technologies in a global context. The successful candidate will have responsibility for teaching and developing curricula for the art history components of undergraduate design education, especially through the teaching of design-in-context, allowing students to analyze their own art or design work more critically. Although based in the Department of Art and Art History, the qualified candidate would be expected to work closely with the faculty of the Department of Design to implement a series of integrated courses that explore contextual influences from the last 100 years of design. In this model, faculty will explore global and inclusive contextual influences with students through techniques, such as case studies of iconic designs; the analysis of diverse cultural contexts for designed objects; and writing assignments that align with students’ studio projects and underpin their creative practice. Such courses should assist students in contextualizing and analyzing their own design work more critically, thus elevating discussions around design and research.

The two departments (Art and Art History, and Design) are both committed to creative research and scholarship at the highest level. Our combined art and design facilities are unmatched in the CSU system, and our many graduates go on to prestigious careers in Silicon Valley and beyond. Although each department operates autonomously, under the larger umbrella of the College of Humanities and the Arts, both departments collaborate in significant areas of curriculum, exhibition, and facilities. The most prominent area of collaboration lies in the area of Design History, in which art historians teach a broad array of service courses to BA and BFA students in all areas of design. Design history faculty also collaborate extensively with the faculty in the Department of Design to develop new curriculum that best can serve the needs of contemporary design education. The successful applicant will be required to teach core required courses in the undergraduate Design programs and, ideally, should have research that is related to issues in contemporary design. The successful applicant will also have teaching, advising and mentoring responsibilities in the BA and MA Programs in Art History and Visual Culture, including teaching appropriate graduate seminars and advising MA theses.

The Department of Art and Art History, the Department of Design, and San José State University value diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Our excellence in research, teaching, and service can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. SJSU enrolls more than 36,000 students, many of whom are historically underserved, and around 45% are first-generation and 38% are Pell-recipients. SJSU is a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander (AANAPISI) Serving Institution. The university’s commitment to social justice extends from its vibrant, inclusive campus to an international network of over 275,000 alumni. As such, San José State is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty so our disciplines, students, and the community can benefit from multiple ethnic and gender perspectives.

Successful candidates will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to equity and inclusion through their research, teaching, and/or service. We ask that all applicants include a Diversity Statement with their application package. A guide to writing this statement can be found at SJSU Diversity Statement Guidelines, along with information about how these statements will be evaluated.

Applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to educating and supporting diverse student populations are strongly encouraged to apply.

Working at Regis University: As Regis employees, we each have a responsibility to perform our work in alignment with the mission of the University, especially with its Catholic and Jesuit values. All employees are expected to both contribute to and strengthen the university's culture of respect, inclusion and equity for all members of our community.

Required Application Materials (submit the following to ruworks.regis.edu by November 15, 2021):

Questions can be addressed to William Sutton, Professor and Chair of the Art History Search Committee at wsutton@regis.edu.

About Regis University and the Fine & Performing Arts Department: The department invites applications from and is committed to hiring qualified candidates from groups that are underrepresented in the field of Art History and within our faculty body. We welcome candidates who bring diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious perspectives to their teaching and scholarship. Our department operates within Regis College which serves a diverse student population. As of fall 2020, 37.4% of our total student body identified as non-white and within that population 23.5% identify as Hispanic/Latino/a/x. Our fall 2020 Freshman class consisted of 55% of students who identified as non-white and 38.75% students who identified as Hispanic/Latino/a/x. We seek applicants eager to work with our increasingly diverse population.

As a Jesuit Catholic University we are open to hiring candidates of all faith backgrounds. In addition, we encourage applicants who identify as non-religious and find secular avenues to uphold Jesuit values. Though many of our faculty do identify as Catholic, a significant number of our current faculty body identify with other religious faiths, and many faculty identify as non-religious. We are also supportive of our LGBTQ+ faculty members.

Regis College is a small, teaching focused, liberal arts college housed within Regis University. We are located in North Denver just minutes from the Denver Art Museum and The Museum of Contemporary Art downtown. Our undergraduate student population has roughly 1750 students and class sizes range from 15-25 students. The Department of Fine and Performing Arts includes the Visual Art Program and the Music Program, and offers undergraduate Bachelor of Arts majors and minors in Visual Art, Art History, and Music. Our O'Sullivan Art Gallery on campus serves art history and art appreciation classes and presents six exhibitions each year including four during the semesters by regional and national artists, our senior thesis exhibition in April, and our heritage series during the summer. We look forward to exhibition ideas and input from our future colleague in this Art History position. Interdisciplinary collaboration is strongly valued in our department. The majority of students we serve as a department are non-majors taking art and music courses. Therefore applicants must be excited to work with a variety of knowledge sets and ability levels.

Position Summary: This position will be the sole full time Art Historian within a Fine Arts Department of eight full time faculty members (four in Visual Art and four in Music). As a result, our Art Historian position will have a great deal of autonomy in shaping the Art History program. The search is open to all specializations within Art History, but we would particularly welcome a candidate with a dual background in Western and Non-Western Art History (desirable areas of specialization/research include, but are not limited to Indigenous, African, Latin-American, Non-Western art history), who would feel comfortable teaching Non-Western upper division courses. This position will suit an art historian who identifies as a generalist and is excited to teach a wide variety of classes. We also encourage candidates who could offer upper division Art History courses on interdisciplinary topics such as inequality, race and ethnicity, and/or gender and sexuality.

Position Responsibilities: This position will involve teaching a full load of undergraduate courses each semester. The teaching load is typically 3 fall-semester courses and 3 spring-semester courses. Summer courses are available but not required. Service related responsibilities include: attending program/department meetings, advising Art History Majors for both coursework and thesis writing, conducting scholarly research, and providing service to the university. While Regis values research (and a record of sustained scholarship is required for tenure), a commitment to inclusive teaching is essential; the candidate must demonstrate the skills to work effectively with racially, socioeconomically, and religiously diverse student populations. Experience or interest in supporting student scholarship and collaborative research would also be welcome.

Islamic Art[]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA) - TT Assistant or Associate Professor (without tenure) - Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture[]

The Department of Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture (AKPIA) in the Department of Architecture. The position is supported by a generous gift from the Aga Khan as part of the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture (AKPIA) at MIT.


AKPIA is an academic leader in the study of architecture and urbanism in the Islamic world. Over the past four decades, the program has graduated leading scholars and practitioners in the field of Islamic Architecture worldwide. Over this period, AKPIA’s students have come from diverse academic and national backgrounds to pursue either an advanced SMArchS degree focused on architecture in the Islamic world, or a PhD degree within the framework of the History, Theory & Criticism program with a focus on the history, theory, and criticism of Islamic architecture or urbanism. The current search aims to build on this tradition while further expanding the scope and ambition of the Aga Khan program to address pressing issues in the Islamic built environment.


The successful candidate will be involved primarily in the study of architecture and/or urban design in the Islamic world, with an interest in design, urban, social, historical and/or environmental questions. They will aid the faculty of the program, and department, in further extending AKPIA’s ambition to address urgent issues facing cities and landscapes in the Islamic world. These include contemporary issues facing the architecture of Islamic societies in a global context; the climate crisis and its unequally distributed effects; the problems of mass urbanization; settlement and displacement, migration and forced displacement; heritage issues; and the quality and conditions of civic space. An important criterion in the search will be the ability of the candidate to engage and collaborate across the realms of design, planning, and contemporary and historical research necessary to engage such essential global challenges.


Candidates should demonstrate evidence of engagement with, and commitment to their work at the highest academic level. This may include works of research, scholarship, and/or design. The individual should be able to demonstrate an ability to develop and teach both graduate and undergraduate courses and supervise Masters and PhD work in an internationally recognized School of Architecture and Planning.


In keeping with MIT's culture of faculty self-governance and the Department's expectations of its faculty, the candidate is expected to participate in the intellectual life and administrative functioning of the department, and to contribute to the department's research and pedagogical agendas. The individual should enjoy collaborating with colleagues, be an articulate communicator, and be dedicated to help steer and support the rich, diverse culture of the Department. In pursuing research, teaching or practice, the individual should also be an effective representative of the department to the external world, in particular to agencies such as the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and the Aga Khan Development Network.


Dedicated to a humanistic and technologically sophisticated vision of design, history, and pedagogy, the Department of Architecture is uniquely positioned within the School of Architecture and Planning and within the larger institution of MIT, which strongly supports innovation and entrepreneurial activity, cross-disciplinary work, and diversity. The Department is actively committed to building and sustaining a diverse and culturally inclusive community of faculty, students, and staff, and a learning and research environment that welcomes and supports diverse interests, orientations, and work. The academic structure of the Department is unique in that each of its five disciplinary areas (Architecture + Urbanism; Art, Culture and Technology; Building Technology; Computation; and History, Theory and Criticism) work at equal intensity, across boundaries, and in collaboration to create an environment in which innovative research and scholarship fuse with the pedagogical agendas of the studios and ongoing design inquiry.


The Department engages productively in research and education alliances with the other units in the School (e.g., the Department of Urban Studies and Planning; Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism; Media Lab; Program in Media Arts and Sciences; Program in Art, Culture and Technology, and Center for Real Estate). In this exciting context, the Department is explicitly committed to excellence in both pedagogical and research activities. Believing that the cross current between the two creates a charged atmosphere for study and a critical edge for research, we are seeking candidates with an ability to thrive and lead in the Department.


Qualifications:

·         The position is designed for a junior or developing scholar for whom a hire at the Assistant or Associate without Tenure level is appropriate. An ability to advance a teaching and research agenda in an academic environment are essential.

·         Candidates should hold a terminal degree in architecture or an allied discipline and show proven excellence in teaching, scholarship, design practice or a combination thereof. A Doctoral degree is preferred but not required.

·         Prospective candidates should have demonstrated accomplishments that qualify them for the above responsibilities, especially familiarity with countries and regions with substantial Islamic populations and their social, cultural, environmental, and architectural contexts. An advanced degree in architecture is required, either a professional master’s degree or doctoral degree, as well as extensive experience in an Islamic context; fluency in at least one language of the Islamic world is strongly preferred.

Application Instructions

Interested applicants should submit: a statement of interest outlining their vision and qualifications for the position, including major professional, research, pedagogical goals and achievements; a curriculum vitae; three current references with contact information; and a maximum 16 page, letter-sized dossier of professional, research or scholarly work.

Successful candidates will have a focus in one or more areas of relevance to the design disciplines offered at Parsons, which can be found on the website at parsons.edu. We are especially interested in interdisciplinary scholars who interrogate relationships of race and culture, the representation of race, and constructions of Blackness. We encourage scholars who bring a critical analysis to established approaches to design history and theory, including potentially the definition of design itself relative to other modes of practice and research.  

Parsons School of Art and Design History and Theory offers master's degrees in Fashion Studies and in the History of Design and Curatorial studies. Additionally, the School offers courses in art and design history and theory that are taken by all undergraduate students at Parsons. Once candidates  become Assistant Professors, they will have the opportunity to teach in their specialty field and will be expected to contribute to our more general required courses, including for example, our First-Year course: "Objects as History." As a community of scholars and practicing artists and designers, Parsons welcomes applicants whose teaching methods embrace the relationship of making to thinking, and who are thoughtful about how to teach humanities subjects to students also engaged in studio work.

The successful candidate will develop new humanities-based research in line with their interests and participate in ongoing research programs and shared expertise with faculty at Parsons and across The New School.

This position is part of the new Mellon Initiative for Inclusive Faculty Excellence at The New School started in AY 2020-21 when four new Mellon fellows were hired. In AY 2021-22 an additional four new Mellon Fellows will be hired across the University. The goals of the initiative are to integrate a cohort of recent PhDs into the academic community at The New School by providing intellectual community, support, and mentorship through participation in the Mellon Transformative Seminar, an interdisciplinary seminar bringing together members of the community representing diverse scholarship across The New School. The appointment begins with a two-year post-doctoral fellowship during which time faculty will develop robust research projects and professional networks, with the option to teach one course in their home department. After the two-year period, faculty will move directly into a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Black Design Studies. After appointment to Assistant Professor, they will teach five courses (or their equivalent) per year in an area of their expertise, and will be homed in Parsons, within its School of Art and Design History and Theory (known as ADHT).

The New School, a private university in New York City's Greenwich Village, serves undergraduate and graduate students across a range of fields with a commitment to bringing practices in design and social research to studying issues of our time and challenging students to become engaged citizens dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good.
