ARTECHNE – Technique in the Arts, 1500-1950


Vacancy: Assistant Professor in History of Art, Architecture, and Landscape

The University of Groningen is looking for an assistant professor in History of Art, Architecture, and Landscape. The candidate will work in research, teaching (undergraduate and graduate courses, thesis advising), the preparing and accompanying excursions in the Netherlands and abroad, assistance in grant proposal writing, relevant administrative tasks. Education will comprise approximately 60% of the time.

The Department of History of Art, Architecture & Landscape in Groningen is unique because it combines the study of the visual arts, urbanism, architectural history and the history of landscapes, and examines the relationships between artwork, city and landscape. Characteristic for the approach of the art history section is that it transcends the traditional lines of division between different periods and, while acknowledging the efficacy of chronological series in teaching, stresses the common features of works of art as material objects. Specific for the architectural and urban history section is that it positions classical, object based history and theory as the basis for addressing contemporary issues, notably in cultural heritage and issues related to the health impacts of architecture, urbanism and public health. Typical for the landscape section is the interaction between designed landscapes (country estates, gardens, parks, land art etc.) and the geological and archaeological features of landscapes.

You may apply for this position until 29 April 11:59 pm / before 30 April 2021 Dutch local time by means of the application form (click on “Apply” below on the advertisement on the university website).
