About the opportunity

The Department of Art History at the University of Sydney invites applications for a full-time, continuing position in the arts, architecture and/or material culture of the Islamic world. Area and period of specialisation are open, but candidates whose work complements existing departmental strengths in the early modern world (ca. 1400-1900) and who demonstrate engagement with global, transcultural, and transregional currents in the discipline are especially welcome. The department is particularly interested in candidates whose work engages with Islamic arts of the Persianate and/or Indian Ocean worlds, and demonstrates current critical and theoretical approaches within the discipline. We encourage candidates with interests in object-oriented teaching and/or experience in Curatorial, Museum and Heritage Studies, as well as those able to create connections with other University strengths, including in South, Southeast, or East Asian, and/or Arabic Studies.

This academic position reports to the Chair of Department and requires an energetic and committed individual to take on academic teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and research responsibilities relating to critical, object-based models of art history and theory. Due to the nature of the academic program, some evening work is required.
