The History Department at St. Thomas University, invites applications for a ten-month limited term appointment in pre-Modern World History, at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin August 1, 2014, pending budgetary approval.
St. Thomas University is an undergraduate, liberal arts institution with a full-time enrollment of 2,300. Its students graduate with Bachelor of Arts, Applied Arts, Education, and Social Work degrees. The faculty members are distinguished teachers, researchers and scholars, and the university holds four Canada Research Chairs.
The History Department at St. Thomas University combines a collegial working environment with a strong research mandate and is dedicated to providing a first-rate undergraduate learning experience. The Department seeks an historian of the pre-Modern era who can contribute meaningfully to its innovative World History curriculum. Candidates whose work is global or broadly comparative in scope are particularly encouraged to apply. All pre-modern time periods and geographic specialties are welcome, though we particularly encourage applications from specialists of the pre-Modern Islamic World. We anticipate that the successful candidate will teach introductory courses in World History as well as upper-year thematic courses of his or her own design with considerable geographic breadth.
A PhD or imminent completion is required.
