Faculty Teaching Fellowship in Art History

Beginning August 2017 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.


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, a travel and research stipend of $2000, an allowance for moving expenses, and a private office with computer in the Art Department.
