Castleton State College, Vermont, seeks to fill a tenure-track assistant professorship beginning August 2009 to teach undergraduate courses in a globally oriented, interdisciplinary department of history, geography, economics, and politics. The candidate must be able to teach the broad spectrum of European history as well as introductory world history courses. A global perspective is especially valued. The ability to offer courses in Middle Eastern history is a plus.
Qualifications: PhD in History with a primary focus on Europe (specialization open); ABD will be considered if the candidate is likely to complete the PhD by the time of appointment. Teaching experience is preferred; the ability to contribute to Castletons liberal arts general education, and an interest in working with our civic engagement and K-12 teacher education programs, are all highly desirable. Castleton has placed a special value on the teaching roles of its faculty, and candidates for this position will be evaluated principally on the basis of their potential to be outstanding teachers and colleagues on a campus that offers small classes and close student-faculty interaction. Starting salary range is $35,000 to $45,000 depending on qualifications and experience. We offer generous health care, retirement, and family tuition benefits.
Review of applications begins on November 1, 2008, and continues until the position is filled. Preliminary interviews will be conducted at AHA meeting in January 2009. Send letter of application, current c.v., evidence of teaching excellence (if possible), sample syllabi, statement of teaching philosophy, graduate and undergraduate transcripts, a completed Castleton application (available on www.castleton.edu) and three letters of recommendation.
