Frank Porter Graham Distinguished Professorship in Global Human Rights History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||North Carolina, United States|
The History Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (www.unc.edu/depts/history) invites applications for a distinguished professorship in the global history of human rights, beginning as early as 1 July 2019. The Frank Porter Graham chair honors a former President of UNC whose own commitments to history and human rights provide a thematic framework for this position. Building on that legacy and recognizing the increasingly global orientation of current historical studies, the UNC-CH History Department seeks to appoint an eminent scholar whose research and teaching focus on human rights, broadly defined. This work might examine subjects such as the history of human rights, the history of genocides, the history of social justice movements, or the history of conflicts over human uses of the environment. Candidates for this position should have published important historical works and be prepared to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in a department that values outstanding teaching. The Frank Porter Graham Professor will also be expected to engage with diverse public audiences outside the University and to serve the outreach mission of a public research university.
To apply, please follow this link (http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/148371) and submit on-line your current CV and a letter of application that explains the main themes of your research, your teaching experience, and your past engagement with public audiences. Please list the names and contact information of four persons who could provide letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on 1 December 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
For inquiries about the position, contact Professor Lloyd Kramer, Chair, Frank Porter Graham Search Committee, Department of History, CB# 3195, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3195.
