Lecturers in US and/or Modern World History
The History Department (downtown Atlanta campus) at Georgia State University invites applications for Lecturers in US and/or Modern World History (1500 CE to present) to begin Fall 2021. GSU history lecturers are full time, non-tenure track instructors who make vital contributions to the department’s undergraduate teaching and programmatic mission, with opportunities for promotion in rank based on the quality of one’s teaching and service. Georgia State, located in the heart of a vibrant metropolitan area in the Southeastern United States, enrolls and graduates one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation. Georgia State is the largest research university in the state of Georgia and is a national leader in innovative efforts to promote student success. It ranks among the nation’s top universities as one of the Carnegie Foundation’s elite category of the Highest Research Activity, and it is the 10th most racially and ethnically diverse university in the nation. Demonstrating that students of all backgrounds can achieve academic and career success is central to the university’s mission. The Department of History (https://history.gsu.edu/) is committed to enhancing its research and instructional excellence by increasing the diversity of its faculty and strongly encourages applications from individuals in underrepresented groups.
The Department of History welcomes applicants who are committed to creative, engaging pedagogies, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and the development of learning opportunities beyond the classroom. Due to the nature of our student body, the department encourages applicants with a passion for teaching and mentoring diverse student populations. Candidates should speak to this in their teaching statement.
Lecturers normally teach four sections of a lower-division survey in their area of expertise per semester. An upper-level course in area of specialization may occasionally replace one section of the survey.
Applicants should submit: 1) a Cover Letter (2 single-spaced pages); 2) a CV (if the doctorate is not already in hand, please indicate the expected date of graduation); 3) a Teaching Statement (1-2 single-spaced pages, that includes a narrative of your teaching goals, approach, and philosophy); and 4) the names, contact information, and affiliations of three potential referees. All four documents should be combined into a single PDF file (LASTNAME.FIRSTNAME.pdf) and submitted as an email attachment to Chair, History Lecturer Search Committee, at HistorySearchCom@gsu.edu. Those applicants long-listed by the search committee will be contacted for three reference letters and graduate transcripts. Applications received by April 9, 2021 are assured full consideration; both preliminary and final interviews will be conducted via video conference. A PhD in history is required by 23 August 2021.
Georgia State University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate against applicants due to race, ethnicity, gender, veteran status, or on the basis of disability or any other federal, state or local protected class. Offer of employment conditional upon background verification. Please direct questions to the chair of the search committee, Dr. Greg Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
