Interested candidates should submit: (1) a curriculum vitae; (2) a cover letter that describes research interests; (3) a teaching statement that includes both a general statement of teaching philosophy and short descriptions of two proposed undergraduate courses (one at the introductory and another at the advanced level) that would contribute to our existing curriculum; and (4) the introduction and a chapter of the dissertation or a more recent book. (5) Candidates should submit three confidential letters of recommendation through Interfolio. Please submit application materials online at apply.interfolio.com/22738.
