The Agnes Scott College History Department invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant rank in the history of the Modern Middle East. The 3/2 teaching load will include a survey of the Modern Middle East, at least one course supporting the college’s global learning initiative, and upper-level courses in the candidate’s specialty. Ph.D. in History preferred; advanced ABDs considered. The successful candidate will possess teaching experience and a commitment to working with a socially and economically diverse student population.
To apply, submit cover letter, CV, and three recent letters of recommendation by November 20 to email@example.com or to Mary Cain, Department of History, 141 E. College Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030.
Additional materials–including syllabi, teaching evaluations, writing sample, and graduate transcripts–may be solicited from selected applicants later in the search process. The search committee will conduct interviews at the American Historical Association Annual Meeting in January 2015, but it is not necessary for applicants to attend the conference to be eligible for this position.
