Assistant Professorship in Global and Transnational History, University of Waterloo

As the fall season approaches, more and more job openings are being posted–not least in the field of global and transnational history. The latest opportunity comes from the University of Waterloo (in Ontario, Canada, about an hour-and-a-half west of Toronto), with a call for applications as follows:

The Department of History in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Waterloo is seeking to appoint a tenure-track assistant professor with an established research record in modern (post-1800) global/transnational history. Research interests in the history of science, technology, medicine, and the environment are particularly welcome, but applicants in other fields of study are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will be subsequently nominated for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair. More information about the Canada Research Chairs program is available here

The anticipated start date for the position is July 1, 2016.  Beyond the normal faculty responsibilities of undergraduate and graduate teaching, service, and maintaining an original and innovative research program, the successful candidate will encourage collaboration with scholars from across campus in related areas, and will develop and refine national and international networks.

The salary range for this position is $78,000.00 – $110,000.00. 

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.  The University of Waterloo respects, appreciates, and encourages diversity.  We welcome applications from all qualified individuals, including women, members of visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities. More information about the History Department is available online. Further enquiries can be directed to the Search Committee Chair, Dr. John Sbardellati.
