The Department of History at The University of Scranton invites applications for a one year (renewable for a second year), non-tenure track, leave replacement in Latin American History, beginning fall 2016. Primary responsibilities include teaching both halves of a Latin American survey, as well as upper division courses in the successful candidate’s area of expertise. A willingness and preparation to teach the University’s First Year Seminars with a focus on Latin America and/or the ability to teach American or World History survey courses is highly desirable.
The University of Scranton is, by tradition and choice, a Catholic and Jesuit university. A full statement of our mission may be found at http://www.scranton.edu/mission. The University of Scranton is an EOE/Affirmative Action Employer/Educator. Veterans, minority persons, women, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply. To apply please submit a letter of interest, c.v., and three references at universityofscrantonjobs.com.I am not in the history department nor am I involved in the search. However, Scranton is a pretty good place to be so I'll vouch for that.
It shouldn't surprise you but I also teach in the Latin American Studies program. We offer majors and concentrations in LAS through the Department of Latin American Studies and Women's Studies. I'd be happy to answer any questions that I can and/or to meet with you if you end up coming to campus.
