Closing date 23rd June 2013 (11.30pm Sydney time)


REFERENCE NO. 160/0113

  • Join a team of dynamic scholars committed to teaching and researching a broad span of art and visual culture, and art history as a global and historical discipline
  • Be part of an exciting cluster of active scholars in early modern European art in the department and beyond
  • Full-time, 3 year fixed term (commencing January 2014): $104K – $124K p.a. (which includes salary, leave loading and up to 17% super)

The University of Sydney’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences  has a proud history of intellectual rigour and offers a vibrant research and teaching environment.

The School of Letters, Art and Media is a vibrant school whose pedagogic practice, research profile and external engagements are shaped by the synergistic benefits of bringing together traditional disciplines with long intellectual histories such as Art History, English and Linguistics, with newer sub disciplinary or interdisciplinary formations such as Media and Communication and Museum Studies.

The Department of Art History and Film Studies at the University of Sydney, founded by the bequest of J.W.Power in 1967, is a leading centre for research and teaching. It offers a wide range of opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate study in many fields including early modern European, American, Asian and Australian art. The Department has established particular expertise in seventeenth and eighteenth-century art and, as a result of a departmental colleague’s grant success, we now seek to make a further three year fixed term appointment.

In this exciting position you will:

  • teach and potentially design curriculum for undergraduate and postgraduate courses with a focus on early modern European art
  • make a contribution to the research strengths of the school, including regular publication in quality outlets
  • supervise research higher degree students, i.e. honours and masters
  • be a source/centre for interdisciplinary collaborations within the university and with external stakeholders
  • contribute to academic administration.

To be successful you will need:·

  • a PhD in the area of European art widely conceived, 1600-1800
  • teaching experience at tertiary level in art history courses
  • an active research profile in European art, broadly of the Ancien Regime, and a clear three year research plan
  • knowledge of the history of European Art in the early modern era
  • some experience of administration relevant to academic life
  • excellent communication and interpersonal skills (in English) to work with students and a broad range of internal and external stakeholders.

There are also desirable criteria for appointment.

Remuneration package: Lecturer (Academic Level B): $104,644 – $124,263 p.a. (which includes a base salary of $88,426 – $105,004 p.a., leave loading and up to 17% employer’s contribution to superannuation).
