The Department of Art, the Lindner Center for Art History, and the Graduate Program in Art and Architectural History at the University of Virginia invite applicants for the inaugural Jefferson Scholars Foundation Edgar F. Shannon Professorship in Art History, a tenured appointment at the level of full professor.

We seek a colleague of international stature, currently at the level of full professor or equivalent and holding a Ph.D. in art history or related field, who is pursuing innovative research and making a major methodological contribution to the history of art-in any subfield. Applicants should have a strong record of publication, demonstrated excellence in the teaching and mentorship of students, a history of engagement with and service to the wider field, an active program of ongoing research and publication, and evidence of a commitment to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The successful candidate will be enthusiastic about contributing to the scholarly life and operations of the Department of Art, the Ph.D. program in Art and Architectural History, and the University at large. We are especially interested in candidates with the knowledge, energy, and aptitude to teach and mentor students from diverse backgrounds, and we seek colleagues whose teaching and research offer synergies with or expansions of existing strengths in the joint Ph.D. program in Art and Architectural History and in the department, which consists of over thirty faculty members in art history, archaeology, and studio art.

Successful candidates will be hired as a tenured full professor and, in addition, appointed to the Edgar F. Shannon Chair in Art History of the Jefferson Scholars Foundation. Endowed chairs of the Foundation receive additional research and sabbatical support, and they are appointed to five-year terms that may be renewed for multiple subsequent five-year terms. Chairholders are expected to contribute to the Jefferson Scholars Foundation’s community, to demonstrate a strong and continued commitment to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to maintain a high standard of scholarship, visibility, and service as conditions for the renewal of five-year terms.
