Fulbright University Vietnam, History
Full-Time Faculty in Modern East Asian History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
Fulbright University Vietnam’s newly launched history program is seeking a historian of Modern East Asia, with a preference for modern China, whose work can draw connections to Southeast Asia and, in particular, Vietnam. Scholars with interdisciplinary experience are particularly valued. PhD candidates who expect to defend by June 2021 and early career scholars are strongly encouraged to apply.
The anticipated course load is 2/3. Successful candidates will be expected to teach up to two sections of Fulbright’s humanities core course and at least one introductory survey course of Modern East Asia. New hires will be given the freedom to develop intermediate and advanced courses of their choosing to help build the history program.
Successful candidates will join the university as a full-time faculty member at a rank equivalent to that of Assistant Professor. Faculty receive salaries comparable to liberal arts institutions around the world, a yearly professional development allowance, and other benefits including housing support and international healthcare coverage.
Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter that specifically addresses why the candidate would like to join Fulbright and how they believe they can contribute to its mission, a CV, a writing sample, and the names of 3 recommenders.
