The Department of History at Colby College invites applications for a tenure/tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor of the history of the Atlantic World, within a global context beginning September 1, 2020. The Department is a community of engaged teacher-scholars who teach a diverse array of courses deeply grounded in our research. We are searching for a teacher-scholar with a focus on the Atlantic World in any era. The Department is open to expertise on all themes, including (but not exclusively) intellectual history, histories of race, gender, and sexuality, and histories of migration, trade, and empire. Reflecting the Department’s increasing focus on global history, the candidate’s research and teaching interests should speak to global contexts, positioning the worlds constituted around the Atlantic in comparative, transnational perspective. The successful candidate will also be expected to teach HI 276, Patterns and Processes in World History, on an occasional basis.
We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who will bring to the classroom experiences, identities, ideas, and ways of engaging that will resonate with History’s, and Colby’s, increasingly diverse student body. We are searching for candidates with great potential to be innovative, effective, and inclusive teachers of history at Colby, who may be willing to make use of resources made available by the Colby Museum of Art, Special Collections, and the Mule Works Innovation Lab. In evaluating this potential, we will give particular weight to candidates who have successfully designed and taught their own courses. PhD preferred, but ABD will be considered. The Colby History Department is committed to professional development and the future advancement of all its members.
Please submit a letter of interest, CV, three letters of recommendation, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a statement of research interests via Interfolio at the following link http://apply.interfolio.com/69612. Review of applications will begin on November 15 and will continue until the position is filled. Questions about this search should be directed to: email@example.com
