West Texas A&M University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor of early American history to begin in August 2013, subject to budgetary approval. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand by August 15, 2013, with a primary field in U.S. Colonial history. Experience teaching the U.S. surveys and the ability to teach the department’s upper division sequence from the Colonial Era through the Civil War are required. The secondary fields are open. The ability to offer courses in fields other than the department’s existing strengths in U.S. Southwest and environmental history will be viewed as highly desirable. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active research agenda that yields peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations while carrying a 4/4 teaching load.
Applications must be postmarked or, in the case of electronically submitted or faxed materials, received by December 1, 2012 to receive primary consideration. Applicants should mail a cover letter, curriculum vita, unofficial graduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, a writing sample, one sample syllabus, and teaching evaluations to Dr. Byron Pearson, Chair, U.S. History Search Committee, Department of History, WTAMU Box 60742, Canyon, TX, 79016. The departmental fax number is (806) 651-2437. Electronically submitted materials may be faxed or sent as email attachments in MS Word to our departmental administrative assistant, Ms. Carmen Terrell, at firstname.lastname@example.org under the subject heading “U.S. History Search.”
