The Department of History at Hope College seeks to fill a tenure-track position for an assistant professor in pre-1900 world history, beginning fall 2016. Qualified applicants should be enthusiastic about undergraduate teaching and prepared to offer general education courses in world history before and after 1500 as well as upper level courses in transnational history and one of the following world regions: Africa; Asia; Latin America; Middle East (3/3 load). The two hallmarks of Hope’s History program are undergraduate education through excellent classroom teaching and a commitment to faculty scholarship-often conducted with student collaborators. Student-faculty collaborative research is supported generously by departmental and college funds. You can find out more about the History department at www.hope.edu/academic/history. Review of all completed applications will begin October 19. A subset of candidates will be asked to submit letters of recommendation and a statement describing their fit to the mission of Hope College by late October and be available for a Skype interview shortly thereafter.
Ph. D. in hand preferred by start of the appointment. Teaching experience preferred.
