The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Cooper Union invites applications for the position of Associate Professor of Art History (full-time), with a specialty in twentieth-century and contemporary art and its relation to culture and politics. The candidate should be well prepared in the foundational modernist movements of the first half of the twentieth century and will have at least four academic years of teaching art history to art students.

The applicant needs to demonstrate evidence of a strong commitment to teaching as well as active, ongoing engagement with scholarly publication, curatorial practice, and other aspects of art historical professional life.  

All applications must include: a letter of interest describing the applicant's strengths, teaching experience, and research; a curriculum vitae; and the names and contact information for three referees. Candidates should expect to submit a selection of written work upon request.
