Brown University Postdoctoral Fellowship in Modern and Contemporary Art
The Department of the History of Art and Architecture at Brown University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral appointment in the field of Modern and Contemporary Art. The Department of the History of Art and Architecture has an established strength in the area of modern art and architecture. The postdoctoral candidate will teach lecture courses and seminars for a popular undergraduate major. We are looking for outstanding young scholars with an interest in the broad context of the history of art and architecture who are committed to contributing diverse perspectives to the department and to the university.
The successful candidate will have the PhD in hand and experience teaching contemporary art and the theory and practice of painting, sculpture, installation, and time-based art of the post-World War Two era. A research and teaching concentration that incorporates cross-cultural aspects of visual culture, global art history, and/or earlier twentieth-century Western art is welcomed.
Applications received by April 15th will receive full consideration. The search will remain open until filled or closed.
