The Department of History, Political Science and Public Policy at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts invites applications for a full-time, fully benefited, tenure-track assistant professorship in United States History pre 1877, beginning September 1, 2018. We would strongly prefer a specialization in African American history. Interests in public history and/or digital history considered a plus.

We will consider candidates who are ABD with a firm date of completion.

This position has a 4-4 (12 credits per semester) teaching load.
