Assistant Professor of United States History(Tenure-Track)
VMI seeks a beginning assistant professor in United States history. Candidates with training in any temporal period are welcome; those with a specialty in the history of race, racism, and/or civil rights are particularly encouraged. The position includes responsibility for teaching two sections of HI 300: American Constitutional History a semester, in addition to upper-division courses in the candidate’s area of specialty. HI-300 is currently being developed into a core curriculum course required of all cadets; candidates should be prepared to demonstrate their interest in and ability to teach that offering. The teaching load is 3/3, with sections limited to a maximum of 22 students.
Minimum requirements include an earned Ph.D. in history by May 2023.

We expect our faculty members to continue demonstrating active research interests in their topical specialty. Initial interviews will be conducted via Zoom, with on-campus visits to follow.
