History: Visiting Assistant Professor of Latin American History - 000080H3

The Department of History at the University of Richmond invites applications for a full-time, one-year visiting assistant professor position in Latin American History to begin August 2021. This is a non-tenure track appointment, annually renewable for up to two years after the initial year, contingent upon performance, budget, and continued need. The area of specialization is Latin America; but the area of concentration is open. We seek candidates with demonstrated teaching excellence and a strong commitment to high quality undergraduate education. The teaching load is 6 courses per year. Experience with instructional technologies is required. PhD is expected prior to appointment.

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and 92% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.”

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment.
