The Hunter College Department of Art and Art History seeks an accomplished artist and/or scholar with leadership skills and a vision for innovative education in the arts and humanities to join the faculty and serve as the Ruth Stanton Department Chair. The successful candidate will chair a department that includes large, nationally-recognized graduate programs in Studio Art and Art History, equally large and active undergraduate programs in those areas, an Advanced Certificate in Curatorial Studies, and the Hunter College Galleries. Working with an accomplished faculty and dedicated staff, the Chair holds responsibility for shaping and guiding the department’s future academically and administratively and communicating the department’s needs and goals to the Dean and Provost of the College. The Chair will oversee departmental staff, budget, and facilities, including those of the galleries, and work with the administration to steward philanthropic initiatives.

We seek an artist with an active and substantial professional exhibition profile or an art historian with a strong record of research and publication. Candidates should have successful administrative experience in a college or university-level program in Studio Art and/or Art History, and teaching experience on both the undergraduate and graduate levels that would merit appointment as a named Associate or Full Professor with tenure in the Hunter College Department of Art and Art History.

An MFA degree or a BA/BFA plus significant professional experience is required for artist applicants; the PhD in Art History or closely related field, or the MA and equivalent professional experience for scholars.

CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension, and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs. We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development. Associate Professor: 67,784–190,000 USD / Full Professor: 83,878–190,000 USD.
