African, Middle Eastern, or South Asian History
The Department of History at Reed College invites applications for an Assistant Professor of History and Humanities (tenure-track), with a specialization in African, Middle Eastern, or South Asian history. We encourage applications on any theme or methodology in one or more of these fields. In addition to teaching courses in one's own area, the appointee will lecture and lead sections in the College’s interdisciplinary Humanities program (see: http://academic.reed.edu/humanities), including rotation into a year-long writing-intensive freshman course. Teaching duties also include advising year-long senior theses. 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 2015. 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 Douglas Fix, Tenure-Track Search in History/Western Humanities at http://apply.interfolio.com/25547 by 1 November 2014. The Search Committee will conduct preliminary interviews at the AHA Convention in New York City in January 2015. An Equal Opportunity Employer, Reed values diversity and encourages applications from underrepresented groups.
