The History Department of Randolph College invites applications
for the position of full-time, tenure-track assistant professor in
the history of the Atlantic world. The scope of this position
comprises study of the people of the four continents bordering the
Atlantic Ocean, especially after 1492 and the beginning of the
“Columbian Exchange,” heavily emphasizing the growing
interconnectedness of those continents. Preference will be given to
candidates qualified to teach an introductory course on the
Atlantic world and upper-level courses on the history and cultures
of Africa, the Caribbean, and/or Latin America, as well as (given
the centuries-long attempted Europeanization of the world)
introductory courses on pre-1900 Europe.
Date of employment is July 1, 2019; report date is in
mid-August. Candidates must have completed the PhD in history, or
expect to do so by September 1, 2019. Teaching experience is highly
desirable. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, brief
statement of teaching philosophy, graduate transcript, and three
confidential letters of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due December 15, 2018.
