Application Deadline: Screening of applications begins December 5, 2019. Review of applications may continue until the position is filled.
The Department of History at The University of Memphis invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor, with a specialization in African and African diasporic history, starting in Fall 2020. The department seeks to further strengthen its core program in African American history with the addition of a faculty member focusing on Africa and the African diaspora, with a preference for specialists in the precolonial era.
The successful applicant will be expected to teach upper-division and graduate courses in African and African diasporic history as well as a survey course in World, African American, or U.S. History. Normal teaching load is 2/2. The Department of History is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty, and we therefore welcome applicants who are from groups that are historically underrepresented.
PhD required by the time of appointment.
The Search Committee will conduct preliminary interviews by video conference the second week of January 2020.
Applications must include:
- Letter of application (“Cover Letter”)
- Writing excerpt from book/dissertation/article (“Other Document 1”)
- Academic transcript (“Other Document 2”)
- Contact information (including email address) for three professional references (“References List”)
