|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Connecticut, United States|
The Yale University Department of History intends to appoint a tenure-track assistant professor specializing in the history of the Japanese colonial empire, to begin on July 1, 2019. The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses on the history of the Japanese empire and its legacies, and should be capable of conducting research in both Japanese and one other relevant language (such as Chinese or Korean). We encourage applications from historians of any country or region affected by Japanese imperial expansion, as well as those who consider connections across and within the empire. The ability and willingness to teach classes on the mid-20th century Asia-Pacific wars is highly desirable. Applicants should have strong potential for achievement in scholarship, undergraduate and graduate teaching, and intellectual leadership. We welcome applications from historians who already hold teaching positions, as well as recent PhDs and those who expect their PhD by the time of appointment. Yale University is an Affirmative Action/ Equal Opportunity Employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, underrepresented minorities, protected veterans, and persons with disabilities. Submit letter of application, C.V., statement of research interests, a teaching statement or sample syllabus, a chapter length writing sample prepared for anonymous reading, and three letters of reference at http://apply.interfolio.com/53231. Please contact Caryn Carson firstname.lastname@example.org or Daniel Botsman email@example.com with any questions. The review of applications will begin on October 1, 2018.
