Updated: September 19 2017

The History Department at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville invites applications for a tenure-track position field in the History of Medicine or Science with a non-US focus. Faculty in the Department of Historical Studies teach three courses per semester. The Department emphasizes innovation in our undergraduate courses by highlighting historical thinking skills including primary source analysis in history “labs,” applied historical methods, interdisciplinary courses, and opportunities to collaborate with professional schools. Teaching responsibilities in the 3/3 load include introductory survey courses in World History or Western Civilization, service courses for majors on historical research or careers in history, and upper-level, including graduate, courses in the candidate's field of expertise and broader non-US teaching fields. The candidate is also encouraged to teach interdisciplinary courses with faculty in CAS as well as with our professional schools, such as Nursing, Pharmacy, and Engineering. Faculty who can foster collaborative interdisciplinary research and apply for external funding are highly desirable.

Additionally, the Department offers an MA degree and a PhD in History through our cooperative doctoral program with Southern Illinois University Carbondale, as well as a post-baccalaureate certificate in museum studies. The History Department at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is a dedicated group of teacher-scholars who value both teaching and research excellence.
