The Department of History at Binghamton University, State University of New York, invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in Ottoman history (c. 1300-1750) beginning in Fall 2016. We seek applications from candidates whose research is grounded in Ottoman sources and archival materials, and especially encourage applications from scholars who take a trans-regional or trans-imperial perspective that incorporates the diverse religious groups, ethnicities, and regions that constitute the Ottoman world. Binghamton University has a strong international reputation in Ottoman and Turkish history. Furthermore, the Department of History, together with the Middle East and North Africa program, offers a wide range of undergraduate courses related to the fields of Ottoman, Middle East, and Islamic history. The ideal candidate for this position, which is partly financed by the Institute of Turkish Studies, will enhance our undergraduate curriculum and provide expertise for the graduate history program that relates well to our other areas of strength beyond Ottoman and Middle East History, notably Early Modern Europe, Medieval Europe, and Global history.


Candidates should have the Ph.D. in hand or have completed all the requirements for the Ph.D. by summer 2016.
