The History Department of the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for an advanced associate or full professor position in Ottoman history, with a preference for scholars of social, intellectual, or cultural history who focus on the early modern era (c. 1500-1800). We have a particular interest in those whose work takes an expansive, trans-regional view of the Ottoman Empire. We are looking for scholarship on phenomena like climate, environment, military power, consumer culture, or international trade, as embedded in contacts between the Ottoman provinces and the Ottoman center, as well as entanglements between the Ottoman Empire and the wider early modern world.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in high quality research/scholarly activities, demonstrate effective classroom teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, direct graduate research, and exhibit a commitment to service to the department, college, and university.
