Assistant Professor - Europe and the world before 1600
The History Department at Macalester College seeks to fill a full-time, tenure track position at the assistant professor rank beginning Fall 2013. PhD required. An attractive application would show an area of specialization in Europe and the world before 1600 combined with evidence of a thematic emphasis. The History Department is especially interested in candidates with a secondary field in Middle East/North Africa, South /Central Asia, or the Pacific Rim. Diversifying our curriculum geographically, temporally, and thematically is a high priority, so evidence of comparative and cross-cultural scholarship is especially welcome. Evidence of methodological innovation and creative teaching strategies is highly desirable. Please consult the History website at Macalester College for our current offerings. If appropriate, successful candidates can play important roles in the interdisciplinary programs listed on the College web page, including Classics; Religious Studies; Environmental Studies; International Studies; African Studies; Asian Languages and Cultures; Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; and the First Year Seminar Program.
Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2012, and will continue until the position is filled. To apply, go to http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo and electronically submit a cover letter, CV, and three letters of recommendation. For any questions about the position or submission of materials, contact Dr. Jamie Monson, Chair, History Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-696-6597.
