|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||California, United States|
The History Department at Whittier College seeks applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in colonial/revolutionary North America. We are looking for applicants who link colonial U.S. history to the Atlantic world, the Pacific Rim or to the Spanish, Indian or French Borderlands. Applicants must be able to teach the early American survey, historical methods, and upper-division undergraduate courses in their specialty area; they must also be able to teach a first-year college writing seminar, and to participate in interdisciplinary programs. We are looking for faculty who understand and have a commitment to teaching at a liberal arts college.
Whittier’s location in the Los Angeles area also means applicants should be able to engage students from a wide range of ethnic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds. Ph.D. in hand by August 2010. Applicants from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Send application materials (a letter of application, current c.v., three letters of recommendation, summary of dissertation project, and statement of teaching philosophy and/or copies of relevant syllabi) to Prof. Elizabeth Sage, Department of History, Whittier College, 13406 E. Philadelphia Street, P.O. Box 634, Whittier, CA, 90608. Review of materials begins November 16, 2009 and will continue until position is filled; preliminary interviews at the AHA in San Diego.
