The Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track assistant professor in American art and visual and material culture.

The successful applicant will teach four courses a year, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, in both lectures and seminars; be responsible for advising Ph.D. students; and help to build the department’s interdisciplinary connections to other programs and areas of study at the university.
