Assistant Professor of Comparative Genocide and International Human Rights

We are excited to invite applications for the position of tenure-track assistant professor of Comparative Genocide and International Human Rights to begin the fall semester of 2019. We are especially interested in candidates working in 20th-century Europe who could teach courses on comparative genocides and comparative human rights, as well as our courses on the histories of the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. The department is interstested in scholars whose work can enter into fruitful conversations with other fields of history represented in the department (social and cultural histories of race, gender, sexuality, indigeneity, colonialsm and imperialism, migration, etc.).  We strongly encourage those whose work is interdisciplinary and can engage with the Heritage Studies and Public History and/or Human Rights programs at the university to apply.

A completed PhD (or foreign equivalent) in history or a related field  in hand before the beginning of the appointment (August 26, 2019) and a dissertation on a topic appropriate to the position are required. Too, candidates must demonstrate scholarly excellence with evidence of potential for scholarly distinction and the ability to teach both undergraduate and graduate students.
