Pullman, WA, US
The Department of History at Washington State University seeks to hire a two year-long teaching postdoc to teach the university’s core undergraduate course, “The Roots of Contemporary Issues” beginning August 2017, pending budgetary approval. Positions may be at the Pullman, Vancouver, or Tri-Cities locations. “The Roots of Contemporary Issues” is a history course that helps students make sense of our increasingly complex world by focusing on the deep historical roots of present-day issues in global perspective. Areas of specialty are open, but successful candidates must have graduate training that demonstrates their ability to understand historical problems in transnational, comparative, or global perspective. Candidates should also demonstrate an ability to engage students in discussions on race, gender, globalization, conflict, and/or the environment.
