The Department of History at Utah State University (USU) invites applications for an Assistant Professor in the History of the United States, with specialization in at least one of the following subfields (in no particular order): environmental history, Native American history, or history of the American West. This is a tenure-track, nine-month, academic year position, located at USU’s Uintah Basin Campus in Eastern Utah. The successful candidate can choose to work from either the Roosevelt or Vernal location. Teaching is the primary focus of this position, and the faculty member will be responsible for teaching six courses per year. These will include one or more of the History Department’s American history survey courses (HIST 1700, HIST 2700, and/or HIST 2710) as well as courses in the Department’s upper division curriculum. Given USU’s statewide mission, courses will be taught primarily in a distance format, including asynchronous online courses and synchronous hybrid courses with face-to-face and remote broadcast students. The department seeks a colleague who can show evidence of teaching excellence and scholarly productivity. The anticipated start date is August 2023.
