With funding from the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is offering a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in US-American art and visual culture (pre-1980). Applicants are expected to be at an early stage of their career, not currently holding, or having held a permanent university position, and must have received their Ph.D. not later than four years prior to accepting the fellowship.
Appointed for two years, the postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to advance their research and career in the lively and international academic community of the Institute of Art and Visual History at Humboldt-University, Berlin. The postdoctoral fellow will liaise with the Terra Foundation Visiting Professor of American Art at the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies at the Freie Universität Berlin by organizing symposia or other events that aim to internationalize the field of American art. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to teach one seminar per semester, thus helping to foster a greater understanding of the historical depth and variety of the visual arts of US-America among art history students in Germany, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. The teaching language will be English.

Applicants are asked to submit electronically and in one PDF-document: (1) cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) research and teaching proposal (max. 4 pages), and (4) the contact details of two referees. All documents are to be addressed to terra.fellowshiphu-berlin.de, Institut für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Unter den Linden 6, 10099 Berlin, Germany.
