Excellent research assessments and growing student numbers enable the Department of History of Art, Architecture, and Landscape of the University of Groningen to hire an Assistant Professor in Art History. We are looking for candidates with two areas of expertise within the period 1800-now. These can include, but are not limited to: art & nature, art & science, contemporary theory, craft, curatorial & museum studies, photography, technical art history, visual & material culture, and Western art in a global context.
Our department teaches the histories of art, architecture, and landscape from (trans)historical, theoretical, and practical perspectives and in relation to one another. Our English-taught BA programme attracts students from all over the world. It provides thorough knowledge of a critical, art historical canon, advances state-of-the-art methods and theories, and teaches in collaboration with professionals in museums and other cultural institutions. Our programme places great value on individual tutoring, writing and analytical skills, as well as experiencing and analysing works of art, architecture, and landscapes in situ. The MA track Art History & Curatorial Studies closely collaborates with (international) museums for its six months internship.
The successful candidate teaches at all levels of our BA programme and its interdisciplinary minors (Art & Religion, Modern & Contemporary Art), in the MA track Art History & Curatorial Studies and the interdisciplinary Research MA Arts, Media, and Literary Studies. Due to the integrated nature of our programmes, we welcome candidates, who are open to trans-historical and interdisciplinary perspectives and who can establish a relation between art history and the history of architecture and landscapes.
The research in our department focuses on early modern European art, art & material culture, and modern & contemporary art. We attract many PhD students and our active research community offers opportunities to develop collaborative, interdisciplinary projects within the Centre for Arts in Society and the Centre for Historical Studies (both part of The Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture, ICOG). Successful candidates are expected to actively contribute to this research environment and are provided support in applying for grants with national and international funding agencies.
