opening in early American history. This would be a wonderful place to work. If you are interested in teaching in a church-related (Catholic) liberal arts college with great colleagues, I would encourage you to apply. Personally, it would be great to have another early Americanist on the Route 15 corridor!
The Department of History at Mount St. Mary’s University seeks an
outstanding teacher-scholar for the position of Assistant Professor
(tenure-track) beginning August 2014. The ideal candidate will
demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and research on Early
American History. The department is particularly interested in
candidates with special training in the history of the Atlantic World or
the slave trade and slavery. The department seeks a colleague who will
be able to contribute both to advanced undergraduate research in the
History major and to the Veritas Program, the university’s
common liberal arts curriculum that includes a two-semester sequence of
interdisciplinary courses on the American Experience. Successful
candidates will share our commitment to the dignity and solidarity of
all persons and the value of intercultural understanding. Ph.D. is
expected; ABD candidates will also be considered.
Mount St. Mary’s University, the second oldest Catholic university in
America, seeks faculty members eager to engage and support our Catholic
identity. Application materials should discuss how you might
contribute to the University’s Catholic liberal arts mission, how your
work engages with the Catholic intellectual tradition, or how your own
faith tradition informs your vocation as teacher and scholar.
Application review will begin on October 15; applications received by
this time will receive full consideration, but the search will remain
open until the position is filled.
The Mount is a comprehensive, nationally recognized Catholic university, where Faith, Discovery, Leadership, and Community
describe our collective calling and promise. The University enrolls
2,300 students and has a 14:1 student to faculty ratio. We seek to
build an inclusive faculty that can engage the interests of an
increasingly diverse student population; we welcome applications from
minority candidates. Additional information about Mount St. Mary’s
