PUBLIC HISTORY, tenure-track, open rank
NC State University invites applications for an open-rank position in Public History beginning August 2015. The department seeks an outstanding individual who is an active researcher, has applied public history experience, is committed to innovative pedagogy and curriculum development, enjoys close mentoring of students, and works well as part of a team of public history faculty. The position is integral to the department’s new doctoral program in Public History. Any public history specialization other than archives will be considered. In addition to teaching public history courses and advising dissertation work at the graduate level, the successful candidate will teach “traditional” history courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The rank is open, but appointment to the tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor requires the earned doctorate by August 2015.
About the Department: The History Department is a diverse group of scholars who pride ourselves on outstanding teaching. Twenty-nine professors teach and advise about 350 undergraduate majors in three degree programs—the BA in History, the BA in History with a Teaching Education Certification, and the BS in History—and approximately sixty graduate students in three distinct programs: the MA in History, the MA in Public History, and the PhD in Public History.
