The Department of History at the University of Chicago invites
applications for an assistant professor in the history of race as
it intersects with capitalism, empire, political economy, or
economic life. We seek scholars whose work centers on Africa,
the Americas, and their Indigenous, colonial and diasporic
histories from the beginnings of European colonization to the
present. Among the goals of this search is increasing the diversity
of the faculty in the Department of History, and we therefore
welcome applicants from groups that are historically
underrepresented in the academy.
Candidates must have completed all requirements for the PhD
degree prior to the start of the appointment.
Applicants must apply online at the University of Chicago’s
Interfolio website at http://apply.interfolio.com/92592 and
include: 1) a cover letter, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) a research
statement, 4) a teaching statement, 5) a dissertation abstract, 6)
an article or chapter-length writing sample, and 7) three letters
of reference. Consideration of applications will begin
on September 20, 2021.
