The Department of History at the University of New Brunswick (Fredericton) invites applications for a full-time tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the history of Early North America, 1500-1800 to commence July 1, 2016, subject to final budgetary approval. This scholar will consider the history of North America in the context of geopolitical and cultural developments in the Atlantic World, and will combine a broad expertise in cultural exchange and conflict with an interest in such themes as the aboriginal experience, settler-indigenous relations, métissage and borderlands, African displacement and resistance, the American Revolution, and the Loyalist exile and diaspora.
The successful candidate will join a small but dynamic department of excellent teachers and researchers, and should be prepared to support its undergraduate and graduate programs in both Canadian and American history. She or he will have the opportunity to be part of an emerging interdisciplinary community of scholars in early-modern studies, to make use of the world-class archival resources of the Harriet Irving Library’s Loyalist Collection, to contribute to the Atlantic Canada Studies Centre, and to be involved in the editorial work of the journal, Acadiensis.
Candidates should have completed a Ph.D. by the date of appointment (1 July 2016) and show clear promise of excellence in both teaching and research.
Please direct any questions about the position to Dr. Jeffrey Brown at email@example.com.
