The History Department at Biola University invites applications for a tenure-track position in World History (broadly conceived) at the rank of Assistant/Associate/Full Professor. While candidate specializations may concentrate on any region outside North and South America and any time period, we are particularly interested in scholars with regional specializations in Europe (excluding Great Britain), Asia or the Middle East whose research focuses on one or more of the following themes: diplomacy, economics, globalization, human rights, imperialism, intelligence studies, international relations, international political economy, international law, military affairs, national security, political thought, and public policy.
Teaching responsibilities will include four courses per semester. The candidate is expected to teach a combination of broad survey and upper-division courses in the history department’s world history concentration and in his or her field of specialization. Through courses in their field of specialization, the candidate will help build curricular connections between the Political Science and the History Departments. Although the candidate will be housed in the History Department, the History Department is committed to fostering a special relationship with Biola’s Political Science Department, which includes the development of cross-listed courses. The History Department serves Biola University’s distinctive Christian engagement with the liberal arts tradition and commitment to excellence in the areas of scholarship, teaching, and the mentoring of students.
Review of applications will begin in December 2020 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit the following materials through this portal: https://biola.csod.com/ats/careersite/JobDetails.aspx?site=1&id=1494
