We are looking to appoint an Associate Professor with particular research and teaching expertise in Medieval European Art before 1500. The appointee will be able to bring together students and scholars working in this period across the Humanities Division and in Oxford’s libraries and collections through a consideration of visual and material cultures, including in Oxford's own collections and beyond–and ideally encompassing research and teaching that expands the field's traditional geographic and methodological boundaries. The appointee will have the opportunity to co-convene the Medieval Visual Culture research seminar, contribute to other pre-1500 research seminars and projects across the Division, and build on the numerous research collaborations established locally, nationally and internationally by Professor Gervase Rosser over the past 30 years.

The appointee will be able to critique constructively the geographic and methodological boundaries of the field, which would complement similar work being undertaken across the Humanities. This has been generating new and creative work both at and beyond the margins of Europe before the Reformation and beyond traditional canons, e.g. in Medieval Islamic art, in Byzantine artistic connections with Western Christendom, and in the diverse media deployed by artists and requested by their patrons in the period before 1500.

This position provides exciting opportunities for the postholder, who will conduct advanced research; build research networks within and beyond Oxford; give lectures, classes, and tutorials; supervise, support and examine students at the undergraduate and graduate levels; play an important part in the academic life of St Catherine’s College; and take on leadership and administrative roles in the Department of History of Art and, as required, in the History Faculty and College.

We welcome applications from candidates at all post-doctoral career stages, including at professorial level. We are committed to creating a diverse academic workforce and positively encourage applications from under-represented communities. We particularly encourage applications from women (approximately 40% of History Faculty posts are held by female academics), people with disabilities and Black, Asian, and minority ethnic candidates.

The appointee will be a member of the Department of History of Art, the Faculty of History, and a tutorial fellow and member of the Governing Body of St Catherine’s College.

The post is tenable from 1 October 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon (UK time) on Monday 18th March. 

Interviews are expected to take place on Monday 22nd April in Oxford.

Queries about the post should be addressed to Professor JP Park (email: jp.park@hoa.ox.ac.uk), who is a member of the Department of History of Art (but who is not on the selection committee), or the Senior Tutor at St Catherine’s College, Professor Marc Mulholland (email: marc.mulholland@stcatz.ox.ac.uk).

All enquiries will be treated in strict confidence; they will not form part of the selection decision.
