Assistant Professor, Public History, Full-time. Competitive salary with
full benefits.

The Department of History welcomes applications for a full-time,
tenure-track Assistant Professor position. The position will focus on
public history, with a preference for a specialization in digital
history. Secondary specialization is open to any field.

One of the primary responsibilities of the position is teaching. The
appointed candidate will typically teach five courses per year,
including undergraduate and graduate courses in public history and the
secondary area of specialization. At the undergraduate level, the
candidate will have responsibilities in teaching writing-intensive
seminars and professional development courses. At the graduate level,
the candidate will teach and develop courses for the public history
track and other areas of the curriculum, and will mentor students and
serve on committees. The candidate will maintain and expand the
internship program.

A second responsibility of the position is to engage in research and
public outreach. The selected candidate will conduct research in public
history, publish in peer-reviewed venues and develop exhibits or other
public-oriented projects in digital or physical format. Research duties
also involve grant writing and developing long-term collaborations with
local and regional organizations and communities.

Finally, the successful candidate will serve in departmental, college
and university committees, and contribute to the governance of
professional organizations, participate in peer-reviewing, and conduct
professionally-related outreach activities.

Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. (or completed requirements for the Ph.D)
in History or closely related degree with a history focus (e.g., African
American Studies, American Studies, Latino Studies, Public History,
Women Studies, area studies) by the time of application; formal graduate
training in public history (i.e., graduate-level or post-graduate
coursework, publications in peer-reviewed public history venues) or at
least three years of full-time employment working in a historical
organization or museum; experience in teaching at the collegiate level;
evidence of scholarly writing or creative activity that results in
publication(s) in peer-reviewed venues, presentation(s) at
national-level professional conferences, professionally reviewed public
history project(s), or successful grantmanship. Preferred qualifications
include: peer-reviewed publication(s); collegiate teaching experience as
an instructor of record in history; experience developing and executing
public history projects; and experience developing and executing digital
history projects.

Only complete applications will be considered. Applicants must submit a
letter of application; full curriculum vitae; names and contact
information for three individuals who will be asked to provide current
(dated within the past year) and original letters of reference;
unofficial transcript showing highest degree earned; a writing sample of
journal-article length; a teaching philosophy statement; a research
narrative; and a statement of commitment to diversity and inclusion in
higher education. Application deadline: December 30, 2019.
