Assistant, Professor, History of RacePosition Description
The Department of History at the University of Chicago invites applications for an assistant professor in the history of race as it intersects with capitalism, empire, political economy, or economic life. We seek scholars whose work centers on Africa, the Americas, and their Indigenous, colonial and diasporic histories from the beginnings of European colonization to the present. Among the goals of this search is increasing the diversity of the faculty in the Department of History, and we therefore welcome applicants from groups that are historically underrepresented in the academy.
Candidates must have completed all requirements for the PhD degree prior to the start of the appointment.
Applicants must apply online at the University of Chicago's Interfolio website at http://apply.interfolio.com/92592 and include: 1) a cover letter, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) a research statement, 4) a teaching statement, 5) a dissertation abstract, 6) an article or chapter-length writing sample, and 7) three letters of reference. Consideration of applications will begin on September 20, 2021.
