Harriman Chair -- Assistant Professor - 20th-Century Russian and Soviet History
The Department of History at Columbia University invites
applications for a tenure-track position, at the Assistant
Professor level, in the field of twentieth-century Russian and
Soviet History. We are particularly interested in someone who is
willing to push the boundaries of the Soviet field, whether by
focusing on geographical regions (e.g. Central Asia, diaspora),
broader chronologies (e.g. fin de siècle, WWI), or new
methodological approaches (e.g. environmental history). The
appointment is in the History Department, and will also involve
close collaboration with the Harriman Institute for Russian,
Eurasian, and East European Studies. Innovative scholarship and
outstanding leadership in the field are key to the position; the
person will work extensively with PhD students in a growing
program, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Russian
history while also contributing to the general curriculum of the
department and the Core curriculum of the College.
Applicants should include a letter of application (including a statement of research interests), c.v., and two letters of recommendation, to be submitted online via Columbia University’s Academic Search and Recruitment System (apply.interfolio.com/90551).
The application deadline is 15 September 2021.
