African American, American Indian, Sexuality and Gender
The History Department at Pomona College invites applications for one-year visiting assistant professor (beginning fall 2020) in United States history with a specialization in African American, Native American, or gender/sexuality history. The department prefers a scholar grounded in pre-20th century history but will consider candidates from any period as long as there is a demonstrated ability to teach both halves of the U.S. survey. The qualified historian will teach five courses (the two surveys and three seminars of their choosing) and assist in advising students with their senior research projects. A PhD at time of appointment is required.
Pomona College and the Department of History support equal access to higher education. Fifty-two percent of our current cohort of first-year students (class of 2023) self-identify as domestic students of color, 11% are international, and 19% are first generation college students. The successful candidate will have the ability to teach and mentor exceptional students of diverse backgrounds—utilizing pedagogical practices that are rigorous, inclusive, and which advance academic equity. Interested applicants should send a single PDF file which includes a letter of interest (detailing research focus and relevant teaching experience) and a curriculum vitae to HistorySearch@pomona.edu no later than Monday, March 16. Applicants who are selected for interviews will be asked to furnish letters of recommendation.
About Pomona College
Established in 1887, Pomona College is a private liberal arts college in Claremont, Calif., about 35 miles east of Los Angeles. We offer a comprehensive curriculum, with 48 majors in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.
One of the premier liberal arts colleges in the nation, Pomona is a close-knit and diverse community of accomplished scholars, scientists, entrepreneurs and artists who are passionate about making a difference in the world. There are approximately 1,670 students who come from 59 nations and all 50 U.S. states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico.
With a student-faculty ratio of 8 to 1, our students work closely with their professors in the classroom, in the lab and in the field. And our location—within an hour of Los Angeles and the mountains, desert and beaches—provides countless opportunities for field study, research and internships.
Almost all students live in one of 16 residence halls on our 140-acre campus. As the founding member of The Claremont Colleges, a unique consortium of seven colleges and graduate schools, we offer both the advantages of a small liberal arts college and the resources of a large uni...versity.
Pomona College admits domestic applicants regardless of their ability to pay and then meets the full demonstrated need of all admitted students. Fifty-six percent of students receive financial aid.
