The Department of Historical Studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) invites applications for a full-time three-year Contractually Limited Term Appointment (CLTA) in the area of Twentieth Century U.S. History. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and is expected to begin on 01 July 2022 or shortly thereafter, and end 30 June 2025.
Applicants must have earned a PhD in History or a related discipline by the date of appointment or shortly thereafter, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. We seek a candidate whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance our existing departmental strengths. Subfields of particular interest include the intersectional history of sex, gender and sexuality; histories of race and diaspora; environmental history; and/or digital humanities. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research at the highest international level.
Candidates must provide evidence of excellence in research which can be demonstrated by the quality of the representative writing sample submitted with the application; publications in top-ranked and field-relevant academic journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards; the submitted research statement, research fellowships and conference record; and strong references from referees of high standing.
Evidence of excellence in teaching will be demonstrated through teaching experience; strong letters of reference; and a teaching dossier that must include a teaching statement that describes pedagogic strategies; sample course materials; and teaching evaluations.
While this position includes no formal graduate appointment or graduate teaching duties, the successful candidate will also be part of the community of the tri-campus Graduate Department of History. Further information about the departments is available at https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/historical-studies/ and http://history.utoronto.ca.
The successful applicant will join a vibrant intellectual community of world-class scholars at Canada’s largest university. The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is one of the most fascinating, diverse and “livable” places in the world.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Candidates must demonstrate, in their application materials, an ability to foster diversity on campus and within the curriculum or discipline, and must show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and the promotion of a respectful and collegial environment. Candidates must submit a statement describing their contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion, which might cover topics such as (but not limited to): teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities; efforts undertaken to develop inclusive pedagogies, collaboration, and engagement with underrepresented communities; and mentoring of students from underrepresented groups.
