The Department of History at the University of Toronto invites applications for a tenure-stream appointment in Colonial Latin America – Hispanic World, at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective July 1, 2017.
The candidate’s research should focus on any topic within Colonial Latin American history, and should be able to set that research in the context of the early modern Spanish Empire, and of global linkages between Europe, Africa, the Americas, and Pacific Oceania. The candidate should show familiarity with a range of scholarship and methods outside of the specialization, and be able to complement our existing thematic strengths.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in History or a related field at the time of the appointment or shortly thereafter; an established or emerging record of scholarly accomplishment, as evidenced by publications in leading journals in the field, presentations at significant conferences, accolades or awards, and strong endorsements by referees; and evidence of experience and excellence in teaching as demonstrated by a strong statement of teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments, teaching evaluations and endorsements from referees. Candidates must demonstrate the ability to teach a range of undergraduate courses in History, from introductory surveys to more specialized, upper-level lecture and seminar courses. Graduate teaching will include seminars as well as supervision of MA and PhD students. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
This position will be held at the University of Toronto campus in downtown Toronto (St. George campus). Learn more about our Department at http://www.history.utoronto.ca/index.html.
