The Department of History at the University of Rochester invites applications for a tenure track position at the assistant professor level in the history of the African diaspora, with a preference for candidates with expertise in the history of gender, Latin America and/or the Caribbean.
The department has a long tradition of excellence of scholarship in the fields of African history, the Atlantic world, African-American studies, and the economics of slavery. We are building on that tradition as we develop our programs in the direction of global history. The department also has a close relationship with the university’s Frederick Douglass Institute for African and African-American Studies, a center that sponsors graduate and undergraduate scholarship, and pre- and post-doctoral fellowships. Applicants can explore the Department of History’s website at http://www.rochester.edu/College/HIS/ and the FDI website at http://www.rochester.edu/College/AAS/ .
The University of Rochester, an Equal Opportunity Employer, has a strong commitment to principles of diversity and, in that spirit, actively encourages applications from groups underrepresented in higher education. Applicants should submit a cover letter, c.v., three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample of article or chapter length electronically, at www.rochester.edu/fort/history. Applications should be addressed to the co-chairs of the search committee, professors Larry Hudson and Matthew Lenoe. Questions may be directed to Professor Lenoe (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Professor Hudson (email@example.com). The committee has begun reviewing candidates but will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.
