Visiting Instructor. The Department of History at Washington State University is seeking to fill a two-year visiting instructorship to teach the university’s core undergraduate course, “The Roots of Contemporary Issues” beginning August 2013. “The Roots of Contemporary Issues” is a one semester history course that helps students make sense of our increasingly complex world by focusing on the deep historical roots of present-day issues in global perspective. Areas of specialty are open, but successful candidates must have graduate training that demonstrates their ability to understand historical problems in transnational, comparative, or global perspective. Candidates should also demonstrate an ability to engage students in discussions on race, gender, globalization, conflict, and/or the environment. Teaching experience preferred; Ph.D. by the time of appointment is required. Instructors will teach a 4/4 load with one preparation. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, one-page teaching statement, one sample syllabus (any subject), and three letters of recommendation. Applicants should submit material electronically (.doc, .docx or .pdf files) to the program coordinator Ken Anderson, at email@example.com. Review of application begins on April 19th, 2013 and will continue until position is filled. Questions may be directed to the search chair, Jesse Spohnholz, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
