|Location:||New Hampshire, United States|
The Department of History at Dartmouth College invites applications for a historian of Modern China (1800-present), to be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2022. The person in this position will be asked to teach Introductory courses in both the History of Pre-modern China and the History of Modern China, as well as upper level and topics courses in cultural, economic, social, or political history. Qualified candidates must show promise of outstanding scholarly achievement and a commitment to classroom teaching at the undergraduate level.
History faculty regularly collaborate with faculty and students in Dartmouth's Asian Societies, Cultures, and Languages (ASCL) program; the courses taught by a historian of China will generally be cross-listed in ASCL. Faculty are also engaged in Dartmouth's Leslie Center for the Humanities, the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, and the Consortium of Studies in Race, Migration, and Sexuality, which all provide contexts for collaboration and support in research and teaching. Further resources for teaching and research in Chinese and East Asian history are available through Rauner Special Collections and the Hood Museum of Art. Our teaching mission is supported by the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL). We are especially interested in candidates who have a demonstrated ability to contribute to Dartmouth’s undergraduate diversity initiatives in research, such as the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship.
Qualified candidates should hold a Ph.D. in History or a related field, or be ABD with degree in hand by the start date. Dartmouth is highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to: racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower income backgrounds, and/or first generation college graduates. Applicants should state in their letter of application how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Applicants should submit via Interfolio a letter of application, a curriculum vita, three letters of reference, and a writing sample. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled. Preliminary interviews will be conducted by Zoom in late October and early November.
