The Department of History at Colby College invites applications for a one-year Faculty Fellow in early American History, beginning September 1, 2018.
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 an historian of early America whose training spans the pre-colonial through the early national periods, preferably with a focus on Native peoples. We especially encourage those whose research/teaching engages question of race and/or gender to apply. Comparative and interdisciplinary approaches are welcomed. Demonstrated teaching experience is preferred as is a PhD. The teaching load is four courses for the year, one of which is the first half of the American History survey. Colby is especially interested in candidates who, through their research and teaching, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the campus community.
