The University of Dayton invites applications for a full-time Lecturer in its Department of History. This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of renewal. The position begins on August 16, 2014. We require a PhD in History and demonstrated ability to teach our HST 103 – The West and the World or similar course (HST 103 is the Department’s introductory course in Historical Study required of all students at the university; it is a survey of key themes in world history including the social, economic, cultural, political and environmental forces that have shaped the human past throughout the globe). The field of specialization for the PhD in History is open but there is a preference for European history. The typical teaching load for this position is four sections of HST 103 per semester, but with the possibility of an occasional upper-level course in the appointee’s area of specialty depending on departmental needs. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated successful experience teaching undergraduates and working with students of diverse backgrounds.
