The Department of History at West Virginia University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor in the history of China, beginning August 16, 2016. WVU is a research institution and the normal teaching load is two courses per semester for research productive faculty. We are interested in candidates whose research specialization can contribute to one or more of the department’s four thematic clusters: gender and kinship, imperial and post-colonial societies, labor and political economy, and war and society. The successful candidate will be expected to teach general surveys of Asian and World history, as well as more specialized senior undergraduate courses and graduate seminars in Asian and Chinese history. Required qualifications include a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree in History or a closely related field at time of appointment, ability for excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, a record of scholarly publications, and potential to secure external research funding. Applicants should submit a letter of application describing their research and teaching interests, three letters of reference, c.v. and a sample of their scholarship to Dr. Robert Blobaum, China Search Committee Chair, Department of History, West Virginia University, P.O. Box 6303, Morgantown, WV 26506-6303. For questions or additional information, contact Robert.Blobaum@mail.wvu.edu or 304-293-9305. The screening process will begin on November 1, 2015 and will continue until the position is filled. The department expects to conduct preliminary interviews at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association in Atlanta, January 7-10, 2016, with alternative arrangements for selected candidates not attending the conference. WVU is an EEO/Affirmative Action Employer and welcomes applications from all qualified individuals, including minorities, females, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.
