The Department of the History of Art at The Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Art of the Ancient Americas to begin July 1, 2022. Fellows will teach one class each semester (undergraduate or graduate), work with the Austen-Stokes Professor in Ancient Americas, and participate fully in the life of the department and university. We encourage applications from scholars specializing in the arts of pre-Columbian cultures in North, Central, and/or South America. Of particular interest are scholars focused on Mesoamerica or other areas complementing the specialization and research of the Austen-Stokes Professor. Ph.D. in the History of Art, Anthropology/Archaeology or related field required at time of appointment. Candidates must have demonstrated an ability to conduct independent research and show promise for excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidates should submit a letter of application, a current CV including teaching experience, two course proposals, and one article- or chapter-length sample of scholarly writing (published, in-press, or from the dissertation). In addition, candidates should arrange to have three letters of reference sent on their behalf. All materials will be submitted online through Interfolio. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2021. For further information, contact Marian Feldman, Search Chair ( mfeldm20@jhu.edu ).
