Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Positions in the Department of History and Archeology

The Department of History and Archaeology at the American University of Beirut invites applications for two tenure-track assistant professor faculty positions in Late Medieval and/ or early Modern Middle East/ Islamic history; and in modern Middle East history, with a focus on the Arabic-speaking world to begin August 15, 2022.

The positions are open to scholars of all sub regions and thematic interests, but the department especially welcomes applications of candidates working on subjects that address issues relevant to intellectual/ cultural and/or social history within a comparative perspective. PhD must be in hand by the time of appointment.

The appointee will provide undergraduate and graduate teaching in his/her field of specialization as well as more general topics covered in the department’s regular program.

The language of instruction is English but good command of Arabic is a plus.

Appointments at the assistant professor rank are for an initial period of three years.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, a CV, a representative sample of scholarship, and sample course syllabi. Applicants should arrange for three referees to directly send recommendation letters by email. Application materials must be submitted to fas.facultyaffairs@aub.edu.lb
