Modern Continental European History. Assistant Professor, Tenure Track. Anticipated start date, September 1, 2018. The Department of History at Princeton University invites applications from scholars who specialize in the history of Modern Europe, 1800 to the present. We particularly encourage applications from candidates whose expertise complements, rather than duplicates, the department's existing strengths in British, French, German, and Russian history. Teaching responsibilities include an undergraduate lecture course providing a survey on a select region or regions of continental European history or Europe's interactions with the world from 1800 to the present as well as upper level undergraduate courses and graduate seminars on specialized aspects of this history. Review of files will begin October 2, 2017, but applications will be considered until the department chooses to close the search. Candidates should send a dossier that includes a detailed cover letter, CV, and one-page dissertation or book abstract. Applicants should also provide contact information for at least three recommenders as part of the online application process. For candidates who do not yet have a Ph.D., the recommendation of the principal advisor must include precise information on the present status of the dissertation and the likelihood of completion by summer 2018. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Please apply online at:
