Assistant/ Associate Professor in Museum Studies

University of Florida

We believe that museums can change the world. The Graduate Program in Museum Studies at the University of Florida prepares the museum leaders of tomorrow to be ethical, socially engaged members of their communities prepared to make positive impacts, both locally and globally, through museum work. Our selective program was established nearly twenty years ago and like museums themselves, we are engaged, responsive, and evolving. The School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida invites applications for the position of Assistant or Associate Professor in Museum Studies. This is a full-time, tenure track faculty position with an expected start date of August 2018.

This person will be tasked with growing the program to include new courses and learning opportunities, and expanding to online platforms while also developing the on-campus program. We have a strong interest in community engagement and growing our presence in local communities. We are seeking a faculty member also interested in developing relationships with other UF faculty and community organizations to develop research, and create learning opportunities for students outside the classroom. 

We welcome applications from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, as well any area of expertise within the field of museum studies and practice. Interest in areas of diversity, inclusion, and social justice are particularly welcomed.
