The Department of History in the School of Arts and Humanities at Claremont Graduate University invites applications and nominations for an advanced Assistant or Associate Professor position (tenure-track or tenured) in 19th or 20th century U.S. history, to begin in Fall 2020. A Ph.D. in History is required. The fields for the position are open but we will look with special interest on candidates with expertise in archival studies, public history, the history of material culture, women’s history, history of the West, and/or environmental history, particularly when that expertise demonstrates interest in the experiences of historically underrepresented groups. CGU, a graduate-only institution, is a global leader in transformative graduate education; we espouse a strong set of commitments to diversity and inclusion in our student body, as well as to applied and transdisciplinary approaches to education. While the position is open rank, we seek to hire a candidate with an extraordinary record of achievement.
Intellectual breadth is important in our department and university. Regardless of specialization, we seek candidates eager to help graduate students who possess a wide range of interests discover nuances and make connections across fields and topics in their scholarly work. In addition to research and teaching, faculty at CGU work closely advising and mentoring MA and doctoral students on their theses and dissertations and on their career preparation. The successful candidate will have a demonstrably strong record of teaching and publications. The successful candidate will also possess experience with and/or a capacity for advising a diverse student body. Additional responsibilities include participation in the university governance at different levels and collegial collaboration within the department and the university, contributions to scholarly and other communities, and collaboration with colleagues at the Claremont Colleges.
