Feb 21, 2023
The Art Department in the School of Arts, Sciences, and Business at Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) seeks a tenure-track assistant professor of art history to begin August 2023. The Department seeks to appoint a dynamic faculty member who can cover a broad spectrum of courses, including surveys of global art history from prehistoric to contemporary, with an emphasis on women’s contributions to art. The ideal candidate will possess expertise in modern and contemporary art, though other areas of specialization will be considered, and will have a demonstrated ability and interest in teaching in a variety of formats.

NDMU cultivates a strong liberal arts milieu that engages students both inside and outside the classroom. Faculty members are facilitators and collaborators in the learning experience. Students frequently join them in research and professional projects. The faculty member will have opportunities to teach undergraduate courses in the major, general education and honors offerings, and occasional courses in the Master of Arts program in Contemporary Communication.

Primary responsibilities include teaching seven (7) courses per academic year. In addition to teaching, faculty are also expected to serve as academic advisors and be engaged with the department, the school, and the University as a whole. The faculty member may also have the opportunity to curate and oversee exhibitions in the two campus art galleries.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. (by August 2023) in art history and an active scholarship record. Highly qualified candidates will be able to demonstrate teaching experience and excellence in teaching in an inclusive environment that embraces diverse talents and backgrounds. We especially seek candidates whose scholarly interests will help amplify our focus on a diverse and inclusive curriculum, with an emphasis on global art and women in art.

NDMU prides itself on its inclusive community and is committed to building an administration, faculty, and staff that reflects the rich diversity of its student body. We particularly welcome applications from members of those groups who have traditionally been underrepresented in American academia.

Interested candidates should submit the following:
  • Cover Letter
  • CV
  • Statement of teaching philosophy that addresses commitment to diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism
  • Sample of course syllabus
  • List of at least three references
Questions should be referred to Geoff Delanoy, chair of the Art Department at
