We invite applications from scholars at the Associate Professor or Full Professor rank with research and teaching expertise in pre-20th century Native American history. We are especially interested in applications from women, members of under-represented groups, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities, as well as others who would bring additional diversity to the university’s research and teaching endeavors. Applicants will be expected to teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and to provide intellectual and programmatic leadership across the University and throughout the broader community.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, and a statement explaining their experience and vision regarding the teaching and mentorship of students from diverse backgrounds. Review of applications will begin January 4, 2021. Full consideration will be given to applications received up to at least 30 days after review begins.
