|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Massachusetts, United States|
The Department of History at the College of the Holy Cross invites applications for a visiting part-time faculty position to teach two courses in European and/or Contemporary Global History for the fall semester of the 2015-2016 academic year to begin in August. We will hire one person or two. The course schedules are set and students have already enrolled. The first course (MWF 8AM) is a standard introductory survey, “Europe 1815-present: From Napoleon to the European Union.” The second course (MWF 9AM) is “Global History since 1989.” Geographic coverage in the latter may be tailored with an eye to the candidate’s expertise. The successful candidate(s) will join a departmental community of twenty historians whose research and teaching straddle the globe. Applicants should have passed their doctoral qualifying examinations (Ph.D. preferred), and all candidates should have prior teaching experience.
The College of the Holy Cross uses Interfolio to collect job applications electronically. Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement on teaching philosophy and interests, a tentative syllabus for the course(s) you wish to teach, a brief analytical statement on some aspect of your scholarship, graduate-level transcript and certification of tertiary degree(s), and two confidential letters from qualified academic recommenders to http://apply.interfolio.com/29922 . You may submit an initial statement of interest and then follow up with these materials over time. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
