The Department of History at Williams College seeks to make a tenure-track appointment in medieval European history, to start July 1, 2022. We aim to appoint an assistant professor who will be responsible for teaching the history of Europe, broadly understood, from c. 500-c. 1450.

The History Department is home to a diverse faculty, and we have a demonstrated record of supporting colleagues from many different backgrounds.


The candidate should be a dedicated scholar with a Ph.D. in hand or expected by September 2022.
