Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Modern German History

The George Mason University Department of History and Art History invites applications for a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Modern German History. The department is home to the award-winning Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and has highly ranked History PhD/MA and Art History MA programs. Faculty members have affiliations with programs across the university including African-American Studies, Cultural Studies, Islamic Studies, Women and Gender Studies, Modern and Classical Languages, and Global Affairs. George Mason is a large public university located in the Washington DC suburbs with one of the most diverse student populations in the nation. We take seriously our mission to serve this population through programs in public and digital history and through our commitment to emphasizing the global connections that link different areas of historical study. We support faculty research and excellence in teaching. George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Masons academic and culturally inclusive environment.

Responsibilities: Candidates for this position will have an active scholarly agenda in the field of modern German history, understood broadly to include research on Germany proper and on transcultural contact beyond Germany alone. We particularly encourage applications from candidates with demonstrated digital skills who can contribute to current and initiate new digital humanities projects.

Candidates will have a 2/2 teaching load and will have broad latitude in developing an array of undergraduate and graduate courses in and beyond modern German history according to their pedagogical and research interests, though it is expected that the candidate will teach undergraduate survey courses in modern German history, the history of Nazism, and the Holocaust. Candidates who can develop new course offerings or contribute to existing courses in digital history are particularly encouraged to apply.

We seek a scholar of the highest caliber who is committed to supporting the diversity of George Mason Universitys student population and the national and global society in which we live. We strongly encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the historical profession, across race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other legally protected basis.

Required Qualifications: * Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. by August 2019. Preferred Qualifications: * Teaching experience in modern German and/or digital history * Experience with digital projects and/or scholarly publications
