Modern US History. The Occidental College History Department invites applications for a regular tenure-track assistant professorship in Modern US History starting Fall 2014. The new appointee will be expected to teach five courses a year in United States history spanning the late 19th c. to the present, with emphasis in the 20th c. The successful candidate would join a strong History department in a liberal arts college with global interests. Candidates specializing in histories of democracy and civil rights, built environment and urban space, the environment, immigration and transnationalism, gender/sexuality, or race and ethnicity are particularly encouraged to apply, although the position is open to all twentieth-century US historians. Occidental College is an equal opportunity employer, committed to academic excellence in a diverse liberal arts environment, and especially welcomes applications from women and members of minority groups. Applicants should submit a letter of interest discussing teaching philosophy, areas of teaching interest and experience, and plans for research; a curriculum vitae; a scholarly writing sample (25 pages or less); undergraduate teaching evaluations; and three letters of recommendation by email to Ms. Patricia Micciche, Search Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. All materials are due by November 1, 2013. We will contact finalists in mid-December to schedule interviews at the January 2014, AHA meeting in Washington, D.C.
