Columbia University, History Department
Open Rank: Assistant Professor/Associate Professor/Professor, Russian/Soviet History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New York, United States|
|Position:||Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Full Professor|
The Department of History at Columbia University invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track professorship in the field of twentieth-century Russian and Soviet History. The search is open to all ranks – Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor. We are particularly interested in someone who is willing to push the boundaries of the Soviet field, whether by focusing on geographical regions (e.g. Central Asia, diaspora), broader chronologies (e.g. fin de siècle, WWI), or new methodological approaches (e.g. environmental history). The appointment is in the History Department, and will also involve close collaboration with the Harriman Institute for Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies. Innovative scholarship is key to the position; the person will work extensively with PhD students in a growing program, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Russian history while also contributing to the general curriculum of the department and the Core curriculum of the College.
Applicants should include a letter of application, research statement, c.v., and the names of three referees, to be submitted online via Columbia University’s Recruitment of Academic Personnel System (http://pa334.peopleadmin.com/postings/4073).
Review of applications will begin on 21 October 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
Columbia University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. The University is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty and staff committed to teaching and working in a diverse environment, and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.
