Job Posting: History - Visiting Assistant Professor
|Closing Date||July 1st, 2022|
|Location||Beloit, Wisconsin, 53511|
The History Department at Beloit College invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professorship in Early American History, to begin in the Fall semester of 2022. The successful applicant will be able to teach broadly in the field; we are especially interested in candidates who specialize in environmental history and/or the history of medicine, but we will consider experts in all subfields.
This is a full-time position with a 2/3 teaching load; the successful candidate will have great freedom in designing their own thematic courses according to their own academic and pedagogical interests. Our department offers small classes that allow for discussion and close reading of sources with students; our classes also attract many students from outside the major who bring interdisciplinary perspectives as well.
Because equity and inclusion are central to our students’ liberal education and vital to the thriving of all members of our residential learning community, Beloit College aspires to be an actively anti-racist institution. We recognize our aspiration as ongoing and institution-wide, involving collective commitment and accountability. We welcome employees who are committed to and will actively contribute to our efforts to celebrate our cultural and intellectual richness and be resolute in advancing inclusion and equity. We encourage all interested individuals meeting the criteria of the described position to apply. Located in a diverse community close to Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago, Beloit is a selective undergraduate liberal arts college that attracts students from across the United States and the world. The college emphasizes excellence in teaching, learning beyond the traditional classroom, international perspectives, and collaborative research among students and faculty. It is recognized as one of the Colleges That Change Lives.
