Special Joint Appointment: Lecturer in Curatorial Studies

The Department of History of Art and Architecture (HAA) at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh (CMP) are strongly committed to excellence in research, and to inclusive curatorial and teaching practices that promote collaboration, diversity, and expanding our public outreach.  To further our leadership in these areas we seek to hire a Lecturer in Curatorial Studies who will work both as a scholar-teacher in HAA’s dynamic art history department and as a curator with the unique cross-disciplinary collections of the Carnegie Museums. This appointment is the result of a major grant given to HAA by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, for the purpose of creating a collaborative consortium between HAA and museums in the Pittsburgh region.  The appointment is for four years, starting September 1, 2015, and is outside the tenure stream, but may be renewable pending budget authorization. The full job description may be found at: https://www.pittsource.com/postings/90822.

PHD or equivalent combination of training and practice such as an MA/ MFA with related research, curatorial, and teaching experience is expected.  Applications are due no later than April 10, 2015 and should be sent electronically as a single PDF file to HAA Administrative Assistant, Molly Sabol at mks89@pitt.edu.  The file should have a cover letter that includes a research and teaching statement and discusses the applicant’s approach to museum curation and the opportunities afforded by this joint appointment.  It should also include a curriculum vitae, list of three references, brief teaching portfolio, description of the applicant’s museum experience, and a writing sample or publication.

Salary and benefits will be paid by the University of Pittsburgh; annual evaluations of the employee will be conducted by the Chair of HAA and the Chief Curator  (or equivalent) of the home museum at CMP. The University of Pittsburgh and CMP are Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employers.  We especially encourage applications from women, minorities, and underrepresented groups.
