The History Department of the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a position in the history of empire at the level of full, associate, or assistant professor. This is a new position that will complement our existing strengths in the history of British, Spanish, and U.S. empires. We especially welcome applications from specialists in the history of the following empires since the mid-eighteenth century: Belgian, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Ottoman, Portuguese, and Russian. We are interested in scholars who address both sides of the metropole/periphery divide and who situate their work in the historiography of empire, which we understand broadly to include formal and informal maritime and continental empires.
The rank and salary for this position will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Senior scholars should have a substantial record of publication; junior scholars should have completed a Ph.D. before the beginning of the 2009-2010 academic year. All applicants should have documented evidence of teaching excellence and a clearly defined research agenda. The selected candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, develop a strong research program, direct graduate research, demonstrate evidence of successful research productivity, and exhibit a commitment to service to the department, college, and university.
The University of Texas at Austin is an AA/EEO employer. A background check will be conducted on the final candidate. The position is subject to final budgetary approval. The committee will begin reviewing applications on November 17, 2008; the search will continue until the position is filled.
