Position: Islamic Art and Architecture, two year fellowship (2014-16)

Smith College and Hampshire College, Department of Art
Five-College Postdoctoral Fellowship in Islamic Art, 2014-2016

Institution Type:   College / University
Location:   Massachusetts, United States
Position:   Post-Doctoral Fellow

Smith College and Hampshire College invite applications for a two-year
postdoctoral fellowship in Islamic Art and Architecture starting July
1, 2014. This Mellon-funded position supports exceptionally promising
young scholars for two years of half-time teaching (one course each
semester) and half-time research. Over two years, the Fellow will
teach four courses, two at Smith College (the home campus for the
position) and two at Hampshire College. We seek candidates with any
sub-specialization who are also able to teach a broad survey of
Islamic art and architecture, as well as courses that incorporate
interdisciplinary approaches. This postdoctoral fellowship is a
full-time, salaried appointment providing excellent benefits and
research support. A candidate must have completed all requirements for
the Ph.D. by September 2014.

The Fellow will fully participate in one of the nations most vibrant
academic collaborations, as Smith and Hampshire participate with
Amherst and Mount Holyoke Colleges and the University of Massachusetts
in the Five-College Consortium (www.fivecolleges.edu/). Smith College
is a women's liberal arts college with 2,500 undergraduate students
and 285 faculty, while Hampshire College is an undergraduate liberal
arts college for men and women with 1,500 students and 95 full-time
faculty.

The Fellow will be provided with research and teaching mentors at
Smith and Hampshire Colleges and will have access to support from
colleagues and library and research facilities at all five campuses,
each located within 20 minutes of the others. The program is designed
to provide Fellows with valuable teaching experience and time to
complete and publish their research prior to seeking tenure-track
positions. Fellows are encouraged to pursue their independent research
programs vigorously and in association with a wide-ranging group of
Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African studies scholars who
collaborate to organize faculty seminars and international symposia
across the five campuses.
