The Departments of East Asian Studies and History at Colby College invite applications for a one-year Faculty Fellow, beginning September 1, 2018.
The Departments constitute a community of engaged teacher-scholars who teach a diverse array of courses deeply grounded in our research. We are searching for a teacher-scholar with a research interest in the history of China, Japan, or Korea of any historical period. We especially encourage those whose research or teaching engage questions of race and/or gender to apply. Comparative and interdisciplinary approaches are welcomed. Demonstrated teaching experience is preferred, as is a PhD. The teaching load is four courses for the year, including a one-semester “Foundations of East Asia” course (taught each semester), a 100-level survey of the modern history of China, Japan, or Korea, and a 200- or 300-level history course in an area of the candidate’s choosing. Colby is especially interested in candidates who, through their research and teaching, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the campus community.
