Faculty Teaching Fellowship in Art History

Beginning August 2019 for ABD or postdoctoral scholar-teachers

Position Description

This one-year teaching fellowship is open to art historians at the beginning of their careers, either at the ABD or post-doctoral stage. The half-time teaching load (usually one course in the fall and two in the spring) will allow the recipient to strengthen teaching skills while also working on professional publications. The Fellow will be expected to engage actively in the intellectual life of the college and will have the opportunity to participate in college-wide teaching colloquia and humanities writing workshops while being part of a small and mutually engaged department. There is a potential for the fellowship to be renewed for a second year dependent on funding.


Specialization in Ancient and World Art or Modern and Contemporary Art is preferred.  The 1/2 teaching load will include at least two art history courses and possibly one Humanities core course with a focus in art history. The salary will be competitive, and the Fellow will also receive health and other benefits, will receive a travel and research grant of $2000, an allowance for moving expenses, and a private office with a computer and printer in the newly completed Windgate Visual Arts Center.


The following materials should all be sent as email attachments to arthistorysearch@millsaps.edu, each saved with a title that includes your last name and an indication of the contents (e.g., Jones.Application Letter.
