University of North Texas, History
Assistant Professor, Early Modern Europe
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Texas, United States|
The Department of History at the University of North Texas seeks applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Early Modern Europe at the rank of assistant professor.
General responsibilities include conducting a vigorous research program; teaching undergraduate and graduate courses that include the upper-division Renaissance and upper-division Reformations course on regular rotation; advising graduate students; and service to the department, college, and university.
The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. in History or a closely related field by June 2020, and a research concentration in the period ca. 1400 to ca. 1700, with a preference for research on the Renaissance or Reformations, broadly defined. Otherwise, research specialization is open and need not be limited strictly to Europe: for instance, work on the Mediterranean or the Atlantic World, early colonialism, or relations between Christian Europeans and Muslims, among other topics, will be considered.
* Publications in field;
* University-level teaching experience as instructor of record.
As a faculty member in a doctorate-granting department at a Research-1 university, building a successful publishing record and working with graduate students will be paramount for the successful applicant. The committee is interested in candidates who complement faculty strengths in ancient history, food studies, religious history, military history (http://history.unt.edu/department/military-history-center), and our department's new "Body, Place, Identity" concentration (http://history.unt.edu/graduate-program/phd-program/body-place-and-identity-concentration). We encourage applicants who are able to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion at UNT.
UNT is a Class I‐Doctorate Granting institution located in Denton, Texas, about 40 miles north of both Dallas and Fort Worth. UNT Denton is the flagship research campus of the UNT‐System, has over 37,000 students and over 6,500 graduate students, and is one of the top choices in the nation for transfer students. The Department of History has 30 full-time faculty, more than 500 undergraduate majors, and more than 100 graduate students.
All initial application materials must be submitted electronically via the UNT faculty career site at http://facultyjobs.unt.edu. All applicants must submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae (which should make clear training in relevant languages), unofficial academic transcripts, one writing sample (maximum forty pages), at least one model syllabus, and contact information of three references. Optional: teaching portfolio demonstrating teaching excellence or potential thereof. Applicants should communicate, somewhere in these materials, how they would teach an advanced undergraduate course on Renaissance Europe, and another focusing on the Protestant and Catholic Reformations. Applicants should submit all these items by 30 October 2019 to receive full consideration; review of applications will begin on that date and continue until the position is closed.
The committee will request additional materials (reference letters, additional syllabi, teaching evaluations if applicable) from a shortlist of applicants around November 1st, and will schedule Skype interviews with a further short list in early November; we hope to hold campus visits with the successful finalists before the end of the Fall semester.
