VISITING ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN HISTORY AND AFRICANA STUDIES

2021-22 ACADEMIC YEAR

Scripps College, a women’s liberal arts college with a strong interdisciplinary tradition, invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor position in early U.S. History (1776 to 1877) with a specialty in African American history for 2021-2022, with possibility of renewal for the subsequent academic year.

The position requires teaching at least two introductory courses, including African Diaspora in the U.S. to 1877 and U.S. History to 1865 in Fall 2021; African Diaspora in the U.S. since 1877 should be offered in Spring 2022; the remaining two courses will reflect the visiting professor’s specialties and will likewise be offered in Spring 2022. Advising senior theses is also expected.

Ph.D. preferred; ABD will be considered. Candidates with some expertise in Atlantic or global history will be preferred. Evidence of teaching experience and teaching excellence are also required. Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to the College’s goal of improving higher education for underrepresented students. Towards that end, applicants should submit a brief (one page) statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Applicants should submit the following materials online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo: cover letter, CV, three letters of recommendation, article-length writing sample, diversity statement, and teaching portfolio (including sample syllabi and evidence of teaching experience and excellence). For matters other than the submission of material, contact Corey Tazzara, Chair, History Search Committee, at ctazzara@scrippscollege.edu. Review of applications will begin April 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.

Scripps College is one of seven members of The Claremont Colleges Consortium located 35 miles east of Los Angeles. In a continuing effort to build a diverse academic community and to provide equal educational and employment opportunities, Scripps College actively encourages applications from women and members of historically under-represented groups.
