Idaho State University

Job Type: Faculty, Tenure Track

Application Deadline: January 15, 2017

The Department of History at Idaho State University invites applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor position in the history of energy at ISU’s Idaho Falls campus. The area of specialization is open; however, we encourage applications from scholars whose work reflects transnational contexts of historical developments.

We seek candidates who demonstrate a growing record of scholarship, commitment to effective teaching, and potential for successful grant funding. This assistant professor will contribute to the existing undergraduate and graduate curricula and develop courses in their areas of specialty. Teaching duties include live, hybrid, and online formats. Student advising is essential. The successful hire, whose office will be based on the Idaho Falls campus, will be a full member of the History Department, which delivers programs to both Idaho Falls and Pocatello. Positive decisions on tenure and promotion require excellent teaching, peer-reviewed publications, and collegial contributions to the university and the profession.

ISU is a research university with over 10,000 students enrolled in programs ranging from undergraduate to doctoral. The Idaho Falls branch campus is located fifty miles north of the main campus in Pocatello, close to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. The nearby Idaho National Laboratory connects Idaho Falls to national initiatives in energy and environmental research.

Review of applications begins January 15. Position open until filled. Ph.D. required by August 2017.
