Description of the Job

The VCUarts Department of Art History at Virginia Commonwealth University is recruiting a pool of applicants for possible adjunct teaching positions to teach sections of Survey of Art I and Survey of Art II in Spring 2018 and Fall 2018. The Department of Art History is engaged in establishing an interdisciplinary, global approach to the visual arts. Its faculty and students recognize the need to study the permeability of geographic, temporal and theoretical boundaries and to produce historically and culturally grounded interpretations of works of art and visual culture. Adjunct faculty may teach a maximum of three courses per semester.

Should funding for such adjunct teaching positions become available, the Department of Art History will contact persons in the pool whose credentials match our teaching needs. This pool will be accessed only when an opening arises. Your credentials will remain active for one year after the date you submit them. After one year, if you are still interested in adjunct teaching, you must re-apply to this adjunct pool. Note that we are unable to hire applicants who are not already in the pool.
