The Department of History at Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment in Pre-Modern European History (from the early Middle Ages to 1750) at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August 2018, pending final administrative approval.  Research and teaching background in the Renaissance or Reformation eras preferred.  Special consideration will be given to candidates who can offer courses with links to other regions of Afro-Eurasia, such as Mediterranean History, Islamic/Ottoman history, or early African or Asian colonial history. Minimum qualifications include Ph.D. in History by the time of the appointment.  Specific teaching assignments will include lower-division thematic courses in early modern Global History, survey courses and advanced seminar in pre-modern European 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.
