The History Department at Hamilton College invites applications for a one-year position at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2023. We seek candidates to teach courses on Late Antiquity and Early Medieval Histories. We are especially interested in candidates whose teaching and research explore cross-cultural, interconnected histories of Europe and the wider Mediterranean, including Byzantium, North Africa, the Near East, or the Carolingian Empire. We are receptive to interdisciplinary methodologies, including historical archaeology, manuscript/book studies, or gender/LGTBQ studies. Candidates should be prepared to teach a lower-division, writing-intensive course, History 160: The Global Middle Ages and to participate in the college’s Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program. We are seeking candidates who can demonstrate their experience in teaching or working with diverse student populations. Your cover letter should address ways in which you raise issues of diversity and inclusion in your teaching, scholarship, and/or service.
Candidates with ABD will be considered, although candidates with a Ph.D. are preferred. The teaching load for this position is five courses. Candidates should submit a cover letter, c.v., and two letters of recommendation via interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/121331. Questions regarding the search may be directed to John Eldevik, Search Committee Chair, at email@example.com. Our review of applications will begin on March 20, 2023.
