The History Department seeks a tenure track Assistant Professor (senior-level assistant professors may be considered) in modern non-western history (North Africa, the Middle East, Asia, or Latin America).
A Ph.D. from an accredited institution, whose scholarly work promises to make a significant contribution, evidence of effective and innovative teaching, and commitment to a student-centered learning environment and cultural diversity are required.
The department is interested in historians who address their field of history in innovative regional, global or comparative contexts, and who can teach lower-division surveys and upper-division seminar courses in their areas of interest. The successful candidate will contribute to the Department’s Masters of Arts in War & Society Studies on a regular basis. The MA in War and Society expands the study of warfare beyond its military, diplomatic, and political dimensions by examining the social and cultural aspects of how societies go to war, experience war, and deal with war’s consequences.
Tenure-track faculty members are expected to develop and maintain an active research agenda for future tenure consideration and are evaluated on their research/scholarly/creative activity, teaching, and service. The faculty member will teach undergraduate and graduate courses, supervise undergraduate and MA student theses, and maintain active research and publication agendas.
