The Department of History at Hunter College invites applicants for a full-time Doctoral Lecturer position in pre-colonial/colonial North America and early U.S. history beginning Fall semester 2020. This position carries a 24-credit workload with 21 credits (7 three-credit courses) for undergraduate teaching and 3 credits for student advising and engagement, along with other administrative duties. This position does not involve a research commitment. The main duties of the appointee will include teaching multiple sections each semester of the first half of the undergraduate U.S. History survey course (the U.S. from the Colonial Era to the Civil War). There may also be opportunities to teach upper-level undergraduate and MA courses in the candidate’s area of specialty. We are particularly interested in candidates who can teach topical courses focused on the pre-colonial era to 1800. We also value candidates who can share successful strategies for increasing student engagement with the history major. The position includes service on programmatic, departmental, divisional, and college committees. Some evening or weekend responsibilities may be required. Reappointment to a sixth year comes with a Certificate of Continuous Employment, the equivalent of tenure.
