Early America/Atlantic. The Department of History at the University of Pittsburgh seeks applicants for two tenure-stream positions, at the rank of assistant professor, in early American/Atlantic history, beginning fall 2014, pending budgetary approval. We seek one historian who specializes in the seventeenth and/or eighteenth centuries and one who specializes in the early national period to the Civil War. Both positions are for early Americanists whose work has an essential Atlantic dimension. Applicants should have a strong record of scholarship and teaching and be ready to participate in a dynamic program of graduate teaching and research built around cross-regional thematic collaboration. We encourage applicants to demonstrate how their research and teaching will contribute not only to Atlantic history but to our other graduate thematic fields: Power and Inequality; Texts and Contexts; and World History (http://www.history.pitt.edu/graduate/transnational-thematic-history.php).
