QUEEN’S NATIONAL SCHOLAR
Department of History
The Department of History at QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY invites applications from outstanding scholars for a faculty appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor under the Queen’s National Scholar (QNS) Program. Appointments under this program will be either tenured or tenure-track. Applicants are sought in the area of African History with a preferred emphasis on Islam or Muslim societies in Africa (whether sub-Saharan or North African) but applications in the general field of African History will be considered.
The successful candidate will exhibit strong potential for innovative and high quality scholarly research leading to peer assessed publications, as well as for outstanding teaching contributions and an ongoing commitment to academic and pedagogical excellence, in support of the Faculty’s academic goals. The successful candidate will also be expected to make substantive contributions through service to the Faculty, to the University, and/or the broader community and will be expected to teach survey and thematic courses in the history of Africa south of the Sahara. The Queen’s National Scholar Program expects that the successful candidate will have demonstrated their ability to provide a rich and rewarding learning experience to all their students and have developed a research program that aligns well with the University’s priorities. Further information can be found at: http://www.queensu.ca/secretariat/index/QUniversityAcademicPlanFinal2011.pdf and http://www.queensu.ca/vpr/SRP/SRPMay2012Final.pdf.
The successful candidate must hold a PhD in History or a cognate discipline; academic training and practice in an allied discipline (e.g., anthropology, archaeology, or cultural studies) will be beneficial as will experience in on-line teaching and teaching World History. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. The review of applications will begin on August 1, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled. The preferred starting date is July 1, 2014.
The academic staff at Queen’s are governed by a collective agreement, the details of which are posted at: http://www.queensu.ca/provost/faculty/facultyrelations/qufa/collectiveagreement.html.
