While not a topic we’ve featured enough here at the Toynbee Prize Foundation, military history is alive and well and a necessary part of the conversation on global history. Luckily for its practitioners, too, there’s a recent call for applications for a great job at the University of Texas-Austin, whose Department of History is in the process of re-orienting itself towards transnational approaches. As a recent call for applications announces,
as part of a major departmental initiative in transnational history, the History Department of the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a position in military history. The area of specialization is open; however candidates with experience in the area of transnational history are encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in high quality research/scholarly activities, demonstrate effective classroom teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, direct graduate research, and exhibit a commitment to service to the department, college, and university.
A PhD degree in History or related field is required. Applicants should have prior experience in the rank of advanced associate or full professor. Salary for this position will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applications should be submitted via Interfolio no later than October 15, 2016. Complete applications will include “a letter of interest, detailed curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Charters Wynn, Department of History.”
