A PhD must be in hand by the time of the appointment, though advanced ABDs will be considered. Candidates must exhibit promise of excellence in research and teaching. Research fields and regional specializations are open but should include some aspect of human rights, and expertise in the Cold War era is desirable.
All applicants must apply electronically to the currently posted position on the Office of Human Resources' job website (https://jobs.fau.edu, reference position #991584) by completing the Faculty, Administrative, Managerial & Professional Position Application and submitting the related documents. The site permits the attachment of required/requested documentation. In addition to completing the online application, please upload the following: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, copies of official transcripts scanned into an electronic format, and a writing sample (one article or chapter).
