Assistant Professor of Global or International History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Massachusetts, United States|
The History Department at Boston College seeks to hire an Assistant Professor of Global or International History, who will hold a joint appointment with the university’s Program in International Studies. All topical, chronological, and geographical specializations are welcome. The strongest applications will demonstrate attention to the processes and problematics of globalization (e.g., environmental, social, economic, political or cultural dimensions), and a facility with moving between various temporal and spatial scales. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in History by 31 August 2018.
In addition to pursuing an active research program and making other contributions to our intellectual community and to the profession, the successful candidate for this position is expected to teach four courses each academic year that encompass a mix of undergraduate surveys suited to the university’s Core curriculum (http://www.bc.edu/sites/core.html); electives; and graduate colloquia. All four courses will be given history designation, but at least two of them should be clearly relevant for International Studies students. (For information about International Studies: http://www.bc.edu/schools/cas/isp/about.html.)
Applicants for this position should submit a cover letter; a curriculum vitae; a research statement; a one-page summary of teaching experience accompanied by two sample syllabi; an article-length sample of research; and three letters of recommendation. Please submit these materials to Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/43690) no later than 13 October 2017. Interviews will be conducted at the American Historical Association’s annual meeting in January 2018.
