Lehman College seeks applicants for a tenure-track appointment in modern European history (excluding the British Isles)

The History Department at Lehman College, City University of New York, seeks applicants for a tenure-track appointment in modern European history (excluding the British Isles), at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, for the academic year commencing August 26, 2020. We are particularly interested in applicants working on trans-national projects in European history or on projects linking Europe to wider global developments. Duties will include teaching introductory, upper-level and M.A. courses; advising and mentoring students; adding to a record of scholarly publications; and serving on departmental and college committees.

The Lehman College campus is located in Bronx, New York and is a Senior College within the City University of New York (CUNY) system. Lehman is CUNY’s only senior college in the Bronx and is recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution. The college serves mainly undergraduate students preparing them for employment, the professions and further study. The teaching load is 18 hours per year and although the college is predominantly teaching focused, faculty at Lehman are active in research, scholarship and creative works. Service to the college, university and community is part of the mission as is a clear commitment to student engagement including advisement. Teaching is reduced for junior faculty over the first five years for scholarly development and all faculty are actively encouraged to seek external funding. Opportunities are available for faculty development and travel awards. Lehman College and CUNY internal funding is available through competitive grants for scholarship support.

Candidates must possess a Ph.D. by the appointment date. Also required are the ability to teach successfully, demonstrated scholarship or achievement, and ability to cooperate with others for the good of the institution.

Salaries are commensurate with education and experience and subject to the Professional Staff Congress-CUNY salary schedule:
CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs. We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development.

Review of CVs will begin on October 1, 2019 and continue until a candidate has been identified.
