The History Department of Reed College invites applications for a tenure-track position in 20th-century European history (excluding France and Germany) and Western Humanities. We especially encourage applications from candidates with interests in the following fields: Russian/Soviet history; British imperial/post-colonial history. In addition to courses in one’s own area, the appointee will teach in a team-taught interdisciplinary Humanities course (see: http://academic.reed.edu/humanities). Teaching duties also include advising yearlong senior theses. The Reed History Department stresses the teaching of critical historical reading and writing.
Reed College is a small, distinguished undergraduate institution with a strong liberal arts curriculum, committed to excellence in teaching and scholarship. Reed also believes that cultural and intellectual pluralism is essential to the excellence of its academic program. We would welcome in your application materials a description of how, as a scholar, teacher, or community member, you might engage and sustain the principles articulated in Reed College's diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity).
Applicants should have the PhD in hand by August 2014. We expect to make the appointment at the Assistant Professor level but will consider applications from more senior candidates. Please send an application letter, a CV, and three letters of recommendation to Professor Benjamin Lazier, Chair, Tenure-Track Search in 20th-century European History/Western Humanities at https://secure.interfolio.com/apply/21917 by November 1, 2013. The Search Committee will conduct preliminary interviews at the AHA Convention in Washington, D.C. in January 2014. An Equal Opportunity Employer, Reed values diversity and encourages applications from underrepresented groups.
