MODERN AMERICAN: The Department of History at Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment of a modern American historian at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August 2018, pending final administrative approval.  We seek candidates with expertise in all eras from 1880s through current, with preference given to those with research and teaching background and interests in the 20th century, with emphasis on race, ethnicity, and gender.  Special consideration will be given to candidates who can offer courses with links to Asia or Africa. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in History by the time of the appointment.  Specific teaching assignments will include lower-division thematic courses and advanced seminars in modern American History, and possibly general education courses, including First Year Seminars.  Teaching load will average 20 semester credit hours or their equivalent per academic year, and all faculty members teach during the College’s distinctive four-week January Term.   The successful candidate must be committed to excellence and innovation in undergraduate teaching, active engagement in scholarly or creative activities, and working closely with students in a small college environment.  Committee service and academic advising also are expected for tenure and promotion.

Hartwick College is committed to a diverse candidate pool, values an inclusive workforce and workplace environment, and wishes to minimize or eliminate the impact of implicit bias during the search and hiring process.
