The appointment will be at the level of tenure-track assistant professor, and will begin on July 1, 2017. Applicants must be ready to defend their dissertations by May 2017 or have Ph.D. in hand. The Rochester History Department offers bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees. Our strengths include history of the early modern world, transnational history and American history. We are bringing together a dynamic group of younger scholars – most recently we have hired historians of Latin American slavery, inter-confessional relations in early modern Iberia, and industrial farming in Eastern Europe.
The university has a wealth of resources in American and gender studies, including faculty in the departments of History, English, Political Science, Art and Art History, Anthropology and Religion and Classics. We host the Frederick Douglass Institute for African and African-American History, the Susan B. Anthony Institute, and the journal Reviews in American History. The Rush Rhees Library has extensive collections in American history. For more information about our department, please visit: https://www.rochester.edu/College/HIS/
