The College of Arts & Humanities at Eastern University invites applications for a tenure-track position in European History, beginning August 2020. The successful applicant will enter at an advanced Assistant or Associate Professor level and occupy the John Van Gordon Chair of History.
The History Department of Eastern University provides a broad education in the discipline of History and historical interpretations for undergraduate students, with special attention given to ways in which Christian perspectives can illuminate the interpretation of the past. We seek to enable students to develop and articulate their historical understanding through reading, critical analysis, research and writing—a formation that prepares them for teaching in secondary schools, further studies in graduate or professional schools, and entrance into jobs in a variety of fields. Above all, the History Department desires to help students use their knowledge and skills to integrate the Christian Faith with History so that they may function as informed and productive Christians in a free society.
Review of applications will begin on December 16, and will continue until the position is filled.
To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, unofficial transcripts and 3 professional reference letters to email@example.com.
Primary responsibilities will include teaching upper level courses that cover Medieval, Renaissance, and Reformation history. Candidates who can teach the history of the philosophy and theology of these eras are especially encouraged to apply, as are those capable of teaching Latin.
Applicants should be willing to fully participate in the academic community of Eastern University and the faculty of friends within the College of Arts & Humanities. In addition, as a professor in a Christian liberal arts university, the successful applicant should be willing and able to support the integrated intellectual, moral, aesthetic, and spiritual formation of students.
Applicants should possess an earned doctorate in History, evidence of outstanding teaching, and a record of scholarly publications commensurate with the position. Though the position primarily focuses on teaching, applicants should also be able to show evidence of a scholarly research plan appropriate to occupying the John Van Gordon Chair.
