The History Department at Saint Peter's University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in fall of 2016. We invite applications from candidates who share our commitment to educating students to excel intellectually, lead ethically, serve compassionately and promote justice in our ever-changing urban and global environment.
The Department seeks a candidate whose research and teaching focus on race, ethnicity and immigration in the American experience particularly in the twentieth century. The successful applicant must have a Ph.D. and demonstrated teaching experience. We are especially interested in scholars who want to invest themselves teaching students of diverse backgrounds and educational abilities. The successful applicant will be expected to teach both sections of the core curriculum, a two semester American survey course, and electives in his or her area of research. The position also involves advising, governance and administrative responsibilities.
Saint Peter's University is especially interested in recruiting scholars who can contribute to the university community's desire to increase its diversity, and ensure that faculty, students, and staff members from underrepresented and marginalized populations are an integral part of the life and governance of the institution.
Saint Peter's is the Jesuit University of New Jersey located just minutes from Manhattan.
