The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library invites candidates to apply for the position of Curator of Western North American History.

The library seeks applications from a diverse range of candidates. A background in library science (or work in special collections), while helpful, is not a pre-requisite. The library’s system of professional ranks allows it to consider people with a broad variety of experience. At its core, the search seeks candidates who are deeply informed about the histories and cultures of the Trans-Mississippi West, including the region’s Indigenous communities and the multiple trans-national migrations that have transformed the West.

Candidates can apply for the job through Yale’s online jobs site at https://sjobs.brassring.com/TGnewUI/Search/Home/Home?partnerid=25053&siteid=5248#jobDetails=1527193_5248.

To be assured of consideration, candidates should apply by March 21, 2022.

The WHA is located in the Department of History at the University of Kansas.

The WHA is grateful to KU's History Department and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for their generous support!
