Assistant Professor in Non-Western Art

Job No: 496829
Position Type: full-time
Location: Lewisburg, PA
Categories: Art & Art History

The Department of Art and Art History at Bucknell University invites applications for a tenure-track position for a specialist in the history of art, architecture, and/or visual culture beginning fall 2022. The department seeks a candidate who demonstrates a strong commitment to undergraduate education. We will be hiring at the assistant professor level. We are interested in candidates who specialize in art produced before 1800 whose scholarship and/or teaching focuses on the arts of one or more of the following: Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, or other historically “nonwestern” cultures. The successful candidate will be expected to teach the first half of the two-semester survey of World Art, intermediate and advanced courses in their field of expertise, as well as courses that contribute to the college core curriculum. Such courses will complement our current offerings in modern and contemporary art. We encourage applicants whose research intersects with issues of race, gender, and sexuality.

The successful teacher-scholar will reinforce the strengths of a department committed to diversity, equity, and global awareness, while making interdisciplinary connections across the university with dynamic pedagogies and research initiatives. The typical teaching load is five courses per academic year, spanning the introductory and advanced undergraduate levels. There is ample opportunity, freedom, and enthusiasm for the candidate to develop their own course content, as well as a future expectation that the successful candidate will offer a first-year seminar in their specialty as part of our department's ongoing contribution to the university's core curriculum. In addition to demonstrating their excellence in teaching, the successful candidate will display the potential for developing a strong body of original scholarship; participate in service activities at the department, college, and university levels; and serve as a dedicated mentor to undergraduate students in the department and beyond. We welcome candidates who demonstrate excellence in reflective multicultural and inclusive teaching practices and who display a strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Art History by the start of appointment (August 2022). In the online portal, applicants should submit a cover letter outlining their interest and qualifications; a C.V.; a statement of teaching philosophy; a statement of commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; and a writing sample (dissertation or another scholarly publication). Applicants should arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted separately. For additional information and to apply, please go to Bucknell's career site (

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled.
