Associate Professor in Art History and Museology 956927

The School of Communication and Culture invites applications for the position of Associate Professor in Art History and Museology at the Department of Art History, Aesthetics & Culture and Museology.
The associate professorship begins on 1 June 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The place om employment is Langelandsgade 139, 8000 Aarhus C
The position
We are seeking an innovative and dedicated candidate who will contribute to a broad spectrum of Aarhus University’s core services in the areas of research, education and knowledge exchange. The successful applicant is expected to contribute actively to the academic and collegial activities relating to the art history and museology degree programmes. The successful applicant must have strong academic competences and must be willing to participate in multidisciplinary teaching, in educational organisational tasks and in research activities.
Applicants should hold strong academic qualifications relevant to the position.  
Applicants must document research results at an international level which can contribute to the theory and methodology of the degree programmes in art history and museology conducted by the School of Communication and Culture. 
We are interested in applicants who can document strong research qualifications within museology and art history in relation to as many of the following areas as possible. At least three of these areas must be covered:
  • Art museums and art institutions seen from an institutional, cultural and organisational point of view.
  • Museological processes in general (collecting, registering, preserving and exhibiting material and immaterial art). 
  • Materiality and technology in relation to both art history and museology.
  • Museological forms of communication. 
Applicants who can also document experience of the following will be preferred: 
  • Managing research groups including junior and senior academic staff.
  • Participating in developing projects and doing research in collaboration with partners and communities outside the university.
  • International and interdisciplinary art historical and museological research collaboration (in projects, networks, conferences, journals and publications).
The successful applicant will be expected to consolidate the department’s strong connection to international museological research environments by working towards a more intensive international collaboration as well as greater internal cooperation between relevant departments at Aarhus University in terms of both research and education.
Applicants must be qualified to perform teaching duties in subjects relating to both museology and art history and visual culture, specifically on the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in art history and the Bachelor’s supplementary subject in museology. Please consult the academic regulations here for a more detailed description of the degree programmes and individual courses. Applicants are asked to specify and explain their qualifications to teach art history and museology, outlining their qualifications in specific courses rather than in all the courses conducted within these programmes.

Applicants with experience of project-oriented, interdisciplinary and team-based teaching, and of participating in the development of new teaching modules and degree programmes, will be preferred. Owing to the increasingly international orientation of the programmes, the associate professorship involves teaching duties in English. The successful applicant may also have to undertake teaching duties at other departments at the School of Communication and Culture. 
Knowledge exchange
The successful applicant will be expected to exchange knowledge with various sectors outside the university. The appointee is also expected to contribute to the public debate in areas related to the position. Additionally, the appointee is expected to participate in research projects with internal and external partners. Applicants should document any prior experience within the above areas. 
If the successful applicant does not speak Danish, he or she will be required to acquire sufficient Danish within two years of commencing the appointment to participate fully in the activities of the School of Communication and Culture. In order to maintain and develop the department’s excellent research environment, the person appointed is expected to be present at the department on a daily basis. Participation in the daily life of the department is a high priority, and we emphasise the importance of good working relationships, both among colleagues and with our students.

Art history and museology
Art history is concerned with art in all meanings of the word. So the research topics dealt with by the department range widely from pictorial art, architecture, sculpture, street art, performance art, bio-art, net art and photography to advertising and the visual regimes governing society on a broader level – and include not only traditional main works of art, but also the latest innovative art. The subject of art history focuses on all the contexts in which art occurs and in which art and visual culture can be understood and can gain perspective. The subject also focuses a great deal on the cross-disciplinary fields in which it is advantageous to analyse visual art and culture.
Research environment
The researchers in this field play an active role nationally and internationally in research networks and publications in the central areas of the subject: art history and visual culture. The research environment collaborates with other subjects in the fields of aesthetics, history, theory and culture both in Denmark and abroad.
The researchers take part in wide-ranging collaboration with art museums, upper-secondary schools and other private and public institutions of art and culture. They are also members of central foundations, boards, councils and agencies, which keeps them in touch with contemporary social developments in the field of art and culture.
The word “museology” means the science of museums and of museal processes such as collection, registration, preservation and communication. The research programme in museology is conducted by scholars from Aarhus University who adopt a wide variety of approaches to the ways in which society (both now and in the past) chooses, institutionalises and communicates the values which people wish to preserve as their common cultural, art and natural heritage.
Museology is a cross-disciplinary field of research. A number of its researchers adopt an art-historical approach to museology; but it also have researchers from the fields of classical archaeology, dramaturgy, business communication, the Centre for Advanced Visualization and Interaction, language programmes etc. Museology also collaborate with other museum programmes at Aarhus University, for instance with regard to research seminars; and welcome scholars from other academic areas who are interested in the history, methods and subject matter of museology. 
The programme has a shared research-related interest in the museum as a social organisation and its communication with the surrounding world in a historical and contemporary perspective. 
The purpose of the research programme is to initiate new research projects, seminars, study groups, conferences, study trips and publications related to museology as a research field at Aarhus University. In this connection, the programme will focus in particular on exploring and developing funding options for research into museology.
