Position – Assistant Professor, Department of Art History & PhD Program in Visual Studies, University of California, Irvine

The Department of Art History and PhD Program in Visual Studies at the University of California, Irvine, invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the art and archaeology of the ancient and/or medieval world. Area of specialty and exact time period are open within these broad parameters, but the Current faculty have expressed interest in scholars whose research deals with transregional and transcultural problems in the art and archaeology of the following areas: ancient Egypt (including Dynastic, Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt); East Africa (including Nubia, Aksum and medieval Ethiopia); ancient Mesopotamia, Anatolia and the Levant; the Mediterranean in the first millennia BCE/CE; pre-Islamic Central Asia (including Gandhara); the Indian Ocean littoral; and the ancient Americas. We do not expect candidates to have expertise in all periods or areas but are looking for a colleague whose work lies at the intersection of art history and archaeology, who can collaboratively build on the Department’s current faculty and programmatic strengths in the ancient/medieval world (currently ancient Persia, Byzantium, later South Asia, and Islam).
