Job Description:

Furman University seeks to hire a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor to teach art history within the context of a combined art history/studio department at a liberal arts institution. The professor will teach a 2/3 course load which includes two sections of an art history survey (ancient-medieval), a freshman writing seminar (FYW) and two courses that can be designed around their research and teaching interests. Candidates specializing in ancient or early modern art, able to support curatorial and archival course work and student research, or experienced in writing instruction and/or curriculum design are especially encouraged to apply. With small class sizes and support for undergraduate research, the ideal candidate is excited to mentor students interested in the arts and humanities. Furman is supportive of faculty research and the candidate will be eligible for research and professional development funds. Questions about the post and its responsibilities can be addressed to Dr. Sarah Archino, Chair of the Search Committee, at sarah.archino@furman.edu.

Candidates must apply through the Workday portal by midnight, November 11, 2019. You will need to have your materials assembled before beginning submission, as the system will not save work-in-progress. You will need to upload your CV/resume on the “Quick Apply” page and then upload all additional documents in the “Resume/CV” section on the “My Experience” page. Once submitted, you will not be able to edit your application. If you experience technical difficulties with the application, please contact Jessie DeMare at jessie.demare@furman.edu.

Required documents include a cover letter that speaks to your teaching philosophy, current research, and considers the liberal arts context of Furman and The Furman Advantage, your CV/resume (including contact information for three references), a one-page course proposal that you would hope to teach in the 2020-21 academic year, a sample writing/research assignment, and a diversity statement that describes how your professional experience, scholarship, mentoring, and/or service might contribute to the community of a liberal arts college committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values. Candidates must complete the PhD before August 2021.

Furman University is a small liberal arts university located in Greenville, SC. We have 2,600 students on campus from all over the country. Ranked #46 among the “Best National Liberal Arts Colleges” in the 2020 US News & World Report, Furman also placed #5 in “Most Innovative Schools.” The art department has about 45 students majoring in art history or studio art, 6 full-time faculty, and classes that range in size from 12-24 students. The art department offers classes in drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, graphic design, sculpture, printmaking, and art history. This temporary position will cover the retirement of a tenured professor during a year when several department faculty are on sabbatical; it is anticipated that a tenure-track search will take place in the near future.

Furman is located in Greenville, South Carolina, one of the fastest growing cities in the Southeast and ranked among "America's Ten Best" by Forbes Magazine. The New York Times recently ranked Greenville #12 on their 52 Places to Go in 2017 list. Greenville has a vibrant and creative atmosphere, which is why so many creative industries have moved to the Greenville area.

First round interviews will take place at CAA (Chicago, February 12-15) or by Skype.
