U.S. in the World. The University of Texas at El Paso invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position on the U.S. in the World, with a preferred specialization in U.S./Latin American relations, beginning in Fall 2015. The department is interested in candidates whose work examines the history of state-to-state relations and/or relations across national borders between non-state actors. Thematic interests may include, but are not limited to, empire, colonialism, gender, race, and culture. This faculty member will teach undergraduate and graduate courses, including the U.S. survey, and participate actively in our Borderlands Ph.D. program. This program, which has about forty students, capitalizes on our location on the U.S.-Mexico border, but also encompasses conceptual and comparative borderlands. Teaching load is commensurate with that of a research university. A Ph.D. in history required; degree must be completed prior to start of appointment. Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Submit letter of interest, vita, and transcripts (unofficial is fine) as an email attachment, preferably in a single PDF file, to Professor Sandra McGee Deutsch at WorldSearch@utep.edu. Three letters of reference should be sent under separate cover directly from the recommenders to the same email address. Review of applications will begin November 15, 2014, and will continue until the position is filled. The University of Texas at El Paso is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
