Assistant Professor Chinese/World History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Virginia, United States|
~~The Virginia Military Institute seeks an assistant professor for a tenure track position in Chinese and World history, beginning in August 2018. Candidates should be well prepared to teach at least one course on China in the Communist era. Additional specializations in any period of Chinese history, including, but not limited to environmental history, social history, foreign relations, political history or others, are most welcome. Other responsibilities include both halves of the VMI Core Curriculum course in World History. Teaching load: 3 courses per semester; enrollments capped at 22 students (or fewer) per section.
Minimum requirements include an earned Ph.D. in history by May 2018; teaching experience is essential. The most attractive candidates will demonstrate a genuine commitment to a core course in World History along with a research agenda employing Chinese language materials. Preliminary “Skype” interviews with selected candidates will precede fuller interviews at the AHA Convention in Washington D.C.
VMI is a public, four–year, undergraduate military college of approximately 1,700 students, about half of whom accept commissions in the armed forces upon graduation. Teaching excellence in a liberal arts setting is our first priority. Faculty members who are United States citizens wear uniforms and adhere to military customs, but military experience among the faculty is neither required nor expected.
