Assistant Professor, Modern World History
|Location:||Pennsylvania, United States|
Wilkes University invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor in Modern World History in the Division of Global History & Languages. This new division was created last year to coordinate and expand the teaching of history and languages at Wilkes University and further Wilkes’ commitment to preparing students to meet the challenges of an increasingly globalized world.
The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching four courses per semester: one or two courses in her or his area of expertise, as well as two or three world history survey courses. Although all non-U.S. and non-European fields will be considered, preference will be given to candidates with a specialty in the history of Asia, Africa or Latin America and those interested in working with the department’s programs in digital history, public history and/or study abroad. A Ph.D. in History by August 2015 is required; the ideal candidate will also have prior teaching experience at the university level. Continued scholarship, advising and university service are expected of all Wilkes History faculty. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.
