The University of Oxford are hiring an Associate Professorship in the History of Medieval Art. The role also comes with a Tutorial Fellowship at St Catherine’s College (pictured).

According to the job description:

We are looking to appoint an Associate Professor with particular research and teaching expertise in Medieval European Art before 1500. The appointee will be able to bring together students and scholars working in this period across the Humanities Division and in Oxford’s libraries and collections through a consideration of visual and material cultures, including in Oxford's own collections and beyond--and ideally encompassing research and teaching that expands the field's traditional geographic and methodological boundaries. The appointee will have the opportunity to co-convene the Medieval Visual Culture research seminar, contribute to other pre-1500 research seminars and projects across the Division, and build on the numerous research collaborations established locally, nationally and internationally by Professor Gervase Rosser over the past 30 years.

The appointee will be able to critique constructively the geographic and methodological boundaries of the field, which would complement similar work being undertaken across the Humanities. This has been generating new and creative work both at and beyond the margins of Europe before the Reformation and beyond traditional canons, e.g. in Medieval Islamic art, in Byzantine artistic connections with Western Christendom, and in the diverse media deployed by artists and requested by their patrons in the period before 1500.

The job comes with an annual salary between £44,296 and £59,479 and applications must be in by 18th March 2024.

Good luck if you're applying!
