Northwestern is Hiring!

In my role as Chair of the History Department at the University of Northwestern-St. Paul, I am pleased to announce that our department is hiring. We are looking for an historian of the Ancient World.

Here is the official announcement:

The Department of History at the University of Northwestern-St. Paul, Minnesota seeks to make a full-time, permanent appointment at the assistant or associate level in the field of Ancient History. Any area or era of the Near East and Mediterranean world (including late antiquity) will be considered, but the successful candidate should demonstrate the ability to connect his or her knowledge with the world of the Bible and with the field of archaeology. The ideal candidate will also demonstrate the ability to teach an outside field on some region of non-western modern world history (such as the History of the Middle East). The appointee will teach upper-level undergraduate classes in Ancient History, as well as support the department and university by teaching the introductory History of Western Civilization course. In rotation, the faculty member may support the department in teaching classes on historical methods or the senior-level history seminar.

Ph.D. required by time of appointment. ABD applicants will be considered.

For full consideration, applications (including cover letter, curriculum vitae, graduate school transcripts, and the institution-specific form, including supplemental questions) should be submitted by December 18. Position is open until filled.
