The Department of Arab and Islamic Civilizations invites applications from a historian of art and architecture with a primary focus on the study of the Islamic world before 1800 for an open-rank appointment that will begin in the fall of 2024. This is a fixed-term position for four years, renewable upon successful review. Candidates with research agendas that include the Levant, Egypt, North Africa, and/or Iberia are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, in all areas of Islamic art and architecture. The teaching load is three courses (nine credit hours) per semester. Courses are to be taught in English. The successful candidate is expected to pursue a robust research agenda; to demonstrate a commitment to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; to supervise M.A. theses; and to engage meaningfully at the department, school, university, and community levels. The department particularly seeks applicants whose research interests demonstrate facility with primary textual sources and reflect the department’s interdisciplinarity, who engage with local material culture and built heritage in their scholarship, and who are receptive to adapting instruction to emerging curricular needs.

Review of applications will start immediately. Priority will be given to applications that are submitted by January 30, 2024. Initial interviews will be held in late January and early February. The position will be open until filled.
