Carleton College — Assistant Professor of History and American Studies

The History Department and American Studies Program at Carleton College seek a scholar of Native American history and culture with research and teaching expertise in the nineteenth or twentieth century. The successful candidate’s classes would be divided between History and American Studies (with a five-course load on a trimester schedule). In addition to courses in Native American History or Native American Studies, the successful candidate would be expected to regularly teach core courses in American Studies, and occasionally to offer a survey of US history post-1865. Interest in collaborations with indigenous communities or nations in the region will be particularly welcome. Administrative responsibilities will be primarily in the American Studies program.

Carleton is dedicated to developing its faculty to better reflect the diversity of our student body and of American society. We are particularly interested in candidates committed to devising creative ways to teach a diverse student body. Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
