Kenyon College invites applications for a two-year, full-time Visiting Assistant Professor of Art History beginning August 2024. The area of specialization is open, but candidates with teaching expertise in the arts of the Islamic world or Ancient Art of any region before 600 CE are especially encouraged to apply. We are interested in teacher-scholars who can offer creative ways to engage with the Art History Department’s Visual Resources Center, the Blick-Harris Study Collection, The Gund, and regional art museums.

The successful applicant will be able to teach broadly in their field. The selected candidate will teach five total classes per year at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels. Applicants should complement, not duplicate, current expertise of the department. The selected candidate may have the opportunity to provide mentorship to honors projects. 

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of the appointment. Candidates who are ABD with a completion date by August 2024 will be considered. Experience in teaching as the instructor of record in college-level courses is required. We seek scholars who can demonstrate a record of undergraduate teaching excellence, preferably in a liberal arts setting. 

To apply, candidates should visit the online application site found at http://careers.kenyon.edu. Applications must include: 1) a cover letter describing teaching experience, research interests, teaching philosophy, and information on ways that issues and practices related to diversity, inclusion, and equity have been or will be included in teaching, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) unofficial graduate transcript(s), 4) a list of three references with detailed contact information, including email address (at least one reference must speak to the candidate’s teaching experience). Note: references will only be contacted for those candidates who advance to the latter stages of the search.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. All applications received by May 10 will be given full consideration.
