|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Wisconsin, United States|
The history department at Ripon College invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in U.S. history (period open) with a secondary specialty in African or Asian diaspora. We are especially interested in candidates whose work on transnational, diasporic, or borderlands issues has prepared them to teach courses in both U.S. history and the history of Africa, South Asia, East Asia, or the Caribbean. We would welcome specializations in areas such as slavery/abolition, immigration, ethnicity, race relations, gender issues, colonialism or popular culture. The PhD is expected by the start date (August 2014), and some college-level teaching experience is preferred. Ripon College is an undergraduate liberal arts college of 1000 students in central Wisconsin that emphasizes excellence in teaching and close student-faculty interaction.
Review of applications will begin in mid-December 2013 and continue until January 31, 2014. We expect to begin phone interviews in late January. Ripon College is committed to diversity and, as an equal opportunity-affirmative action employer, encourages all qualified individuals to apply.
