Position Description:    

The Department of History at the University of Oregon invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor position in African American history, to begin Sept. 16, 2021 (AY 2021-22). The research field is open but the successful candidate will teach both halves of the African American history survey and advanced courses in their area of specialization.

The department is especially interested in candidates whose teaching, research, and mentorship would complement and support the Black Studies minor.

The history department will assign a faculty mentor to support the successful candidate. The salary is $60,000, plus a generous benefits package.
