Kenyon College, a highly selective liberal arts college in central Ohio, invites applications for a tenure-track position in East Asian history beginning 1 July 2024. Region, period, and languages of specialization within East Asia are open. Candidates should be prepared to teach introductory surveys on modern and premodern East Asia and upper-level seminars in their area of expertise or interest. Specialists on China, Japan, or Korea who understand East Asia in a transnational context are especially welcome.
The successful candidate will hold the James P. Storer Chair in Asian History, which includes funding for research and the expectation of teaching five courses per year. In addition to maintaining an active research agenda and contributing to the curriculum of the History Department, the holder of the chair is also expected to promote awareness of East Asia across campus through engagement with students and faculty in programs such as the Asian and Middle East Studies Program, the International Studies Program, and/or other campus endeavors.
The History Department is composed of a dozen historians with diverse thematic and geographic specializations, and it values both excellence in undergraduate education and high-quality research.
Candidates should have a record of excellent teaching and a Ph.D. in hand or be near completion by the beginning of the appointment (July 2024).
Applications should include (1) a letter of application, (2) a curriculum vitae, and (3) contact information for three recommenders. More materials (letters of recommendation, a writing sample, an unofficial graduate school transcript, and a statement of teaching philosophy) will be requested from candidates who advance to the interview stage.
All application materials must be submitted electronically through Kenyon’s employment website: http://careers.kenyon.edu. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2023, and continue until the position is filled.
