Free open Job in North, South & Central America Harriman Chair — Assistant Professor

The Department of History at Columbia University invites applications for a tenure-track position, at the Assistant Professor level, in the field of twentieth-century Russian and Soviet History. We are particularly interested in someone who is willing to push the boundaries of the Soviet field, whether by focusing on geographical regions (e.g. Central Asia, diaspora), broader chronologies (e.g. fin de siècle, WWI), or new methodological approaches (e.g. environmental history). The appointment is in the History Department, and will also involve close collaboration with the Harriman Institute for Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies. Innovative scholarship and outstanding leadership in the field are key to the position; the person will work extensively with PhD students in a growing program, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Russian history while also contributing to the general curriculum of the department and the Core curriculum of the College.

Applicants should include a letter of application (including a statement of research interests), c.v., and two letters of recommendation, to be submitted online via Columbia University’s Academic Search and Recruitment System (here).

The application deadline is 15 September 2021.
