The Department of History at Texas A&M University invites applications for one or two tenure-track assistant professorships to begin in September 2011 in the history of the United States in the nineteenth century and/or the history of the United States in the twentieth century. All fields of specialization are welcome for both positions, with a preference for candidates whose expertise will complement the current strengths of the department and who will contribute to our program in Comparative Border Studies. We especially encourage candidates whose work crosses geographical, racial, ethnic, gender, and/or cultural borders and who present their research in a broad comparative framework. A PhD or defense of the PhD by September 1, 2011, evidence of scholarly accomplishment or potential, and the ability to take an active role in both graduate and undergraduate courses are required.
