The History Department and African Studies Institute at the University of Georgia invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professorship specializing in the history of eastern Africa, broadly conceived. Candidates must have a PhD at the time of appointment and demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and research. Special consideration will be given to candidates who share research interests with members of the History Department in areas such as the history of imperialism, capitalism, slavery, race, gender or Islam.
The successful candidate will begin a joint appointment in the fall of 2012, teaching courses in the History Department and the African Studies Institute, at both the introductory and advanced levels. There will also be occasional opportunities to teach graduate courses in the History Department, where the candidate would ultimately earn tenure.
Candidates should apply at http://recruitment.franklin.uga.edu/index.php?=10 and submit a letter of application, vita, statement on research and teaching, two syllabi, three references and an essay-length writing sample, all as PDF files. The review of applications will begin November 1, 2011 and continue until an appointment is made. Preliminary interviews will be held at the annual meeting of the ASA in Washington, D.C. from November 17th to 19th. Questions concerning this position should be directed to Timothy Cleaveland, Search Committee Chair, at email@example.com.
The Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, its many units, and the University of Georgia are committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and students, and sustaining a work and learning environment that is inclusive. Women, minorities and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply. The University of Georgia is an EEO/AA institution.
