Posted by: Smarthistory, Inc.
Deadline: Fri, March 1st, 2019


Smarthistory is seeking applications for an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow to develop global art history content. This is a one-year full-time position that may be renewed for one additional year. Applicants will have a Ph.D. in art history (or a closely related field such as archaeology) as well as teaching experience. Applicants with diverse backgrounds are particularly encouraged to apply. Familiarity in one or more of the following areas is ideal: Asian art, African art, Native American art, art of the Pacific Islands, Latin American art, or Pre-Columbian art.

The successful applicant will have a level of comfort with content management systems (such as WordPress) and experience with audio and video production. He/she will work closely with Smarthistory founders and Executive Directors Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker on a range of activities including editing, producing, and publishing essays and video content for Smarthistory, working with contributing art historians and Smarthistory Contributing Editors, seeking new contributors, reorganizing content as new material is added, and working to create consistency across the site.

The Fellow will receive professional development mentoring, periodic performance evaluations, and will be supported in developing professional relationships with academic contributors over the course of the year. The fellow may also be asked to attend annual workshops in New York City. This is a temporary full time position with an annual salary of $55,000 (plus a generous health insurance option). The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow can work remotely, although residence in the New York City area is a plus.

Applications must include the following material:
• cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest in the position and multimedia experience
• complete curriculum vitae including education, employment, honors, and publications
• copy of a published paper or writing sample
• names and contact information for three references
