The History Department of Reed College invites applications for a tenure-track position in Modern European History (19th-20th century, excluding Germany) and Western Humanities. In addition to courses in one’s own area, the appointee will also teach in a team-taught interdisciplinary Humanities course. Teaching responsibilities will include three history courses per year, advising yearlong senior theses, and initial assignment in Modern European Humanities (http://academic.reed.edu/humanities/hum220/index.html). The Reed History Department particularly stresses the teaching of critical historical reading and writing.
We encourage applications from candidates with interests in one or more of the following: international relations and diplomacy, war and society, labor and industrialization, migration and citizenship, and Europe and the world.
Applicants should have the Ph.D. in hand by August 2011. We expect to make the appointment at the Assistant Professor level but will consider applications from more senior candidates. Electronic applications are required and must be sent as PDF (preferred) or Word attachments. Send cover letter, curriculum vita, and three letters of reference to email@example.com. If letters of reference must be sent in hard copy, please submit to Prof. Michael P. Breen, Chair Tenure-Track Search in European History, c/o Karin Purdy, Reed College, 3203 SE Woodstock Blvd., Portland OR 97202. Complete applications must be received by November 12, 2010.
The Search Committee will conduct preliminary interviews at the AHA Convention in Boston in January. An Equal Opportunity Employer, Reed values diversity and encourages applications from underrepresented groups.
