Position Description:   URMs  

The Department of History invites applications for a position that is part of The Ohio State University’s Provost’s Tenure-Track Fellow to Faculty Program. The department seeks a dynamic, early career historian whose research focuses on contemporary African American history, from the 1970s to the present. We are especially interested in applications from scholars whose research explores Black leadership, broadly defined. Candidates may specialize in any number of fields, including social movement history, urban history, the carceral state, women’s, gender and sexuality history, political history, environmental history, and the new history of capitalism.

The appointment will begin on August 15, 2023.

The Provost's Tenure-Track Fellow to Faculty Program is a two-year program that assists early career scholars as they transition to the tenure track. Provost Fellows will receive research funding and participate in career development programs to support their transition to assistant professor and their long-term career success. In addition, Provost Fellows will focus time on research for up to two years allowing for an in-depth start on scholarship, with limited teaching requirements (although Fellows may teach one course per year if they choose), participate in the activities within the Department of History, and have a designated faculty mentor. Following the fellowship period, which is an instructor rank appointment, Provost Fellows will then transfer to the rank of assistant professor within the Department of History and the tenure clock will begin.

Qualifications:

The candidate must possess a Ph.D. by the time of appointment. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.
