The Department of the History of Art at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for the position of Austen-Stokes Professor in the Art of the Ancient Americas, to begin July 1, 2023. The appointment may be made at any academic rank (tenure-track assistant, tenured associate, or tenured full professor). We welcome applications from scholars specializing in the art, architecture, and/or material culture of pre-colonial North, Central, and/or South America, including the Caribbean.

Ph.D. in the History of Art, Anthropology/Archaeology, or related fields required at time of appointment. Candidates should submit a letter of application, a current CV, and one article- or chapter-length sample of scholarly writing (published or in-press). Applications must demonstrate a strong research profile and a commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The cover letter should address how the candidate’s research approaches, teaching methodology, and/or public engagement would contribute to the university’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The ideal candidate will also demonstrate a commitment to the field's development: the Austen-Stokes Professor participates in the recruitment and mentorship of the Austen-Stokes Postdoctoral Fellow (an endowed, two-year fellowship); organizes the annual Austen-Stokes Distinguished Lecture; and fosters student research, travel, and programming through designated, endowed research funds. Applicants at the assistant professor level should arrange to have three letters of reference sent on their behalf; tenured applicants should instead include the names and contact information of three references.
