Position Description:    

As part of the university's comprehensive vaccination program, all Cornell employees are required to have and provide proof of an FDA-or WHO-authorized or approved COVID-19 primary vaccination or have obtained a university-approved disability/medical or religious exemption, regardless of their role and work location.

New hires are required to provide documentation showing primary vaccination status (that is, completion of two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one shot of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) before their first day of work. If a new hire's vaccination is not complete or information is not received by their start date, the first day of work will be delayed. It is possible in some cases that an offer of employment may be withdrawn.

The Department invites applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty position in U.S. labor and working-class history to begin August 2023.  We are interested in social and political historians whose scholarship engages questions of work, inequality, the economy, or political and working-class culture. We are particularly interested in scholars whose research focuses on the experiences of different ethnic and racial groups of workers. This may involve workers’ experiences in their jobs, organizations, and/or communities, or how their labor intersects with questions of citizenship, class, race/ethnicity, disability, and gender and sexuality, among other possible areas of inquiry. Candidates must demonstrate excellence in scholarly research and teaching. 

The ILR School is the world’s leading college focused on work, employment and labor issues.  Information about the ILR School is available at www.ilr.cornell.edu.  Our faculty includes leading scholars from a number of disciplinary backgrounds who study a broad range of issues related to labor, employment and organizations.  This job is based at Cornell University’s campus in Ithaca, NY.

Cornell University is committed to supporting the work-life balance of its faculty.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter describing their research and teaching interests, a curriculum vitae, diversity and inclusion statement, and the names of three references. Short-listed candidates will be asked for writing samples and letters of refence. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.

We will begin reviewing applications as they arrive and no later than October 1, 2022.  Questions about this position should be directed to Professor Ileen DeVault, Search Committee Chair, at  iad1@cornell.edu. 



Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations. Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students, and staff impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose, and contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery, and engagement.
