Introduction

  • If you are applying for academic jobs in history during the 2008-2009 school year, this wiki is for you. Since history departments do not always do a good job of notifying applicants about the status of their search, this wiki allows job applicants to share their updates with each other. Through this collaborative effort, job searchers can provide the latest news on the dates and status of phone interviews, conference interviews, campus visits, job offers, and acceptance of job offers. As we work together, we can help keep search committees more honest. If you are unsure whether a search committee has acted inappropriately, review the AHA guidelines and standards that are linked below.
  • Our goal is to list below all known open searches, by regional and topical specialization. Please check the below job listing web sites frequently and add new searches as they appear on the Internet. Try to match, as closely as possible, each job with one or more of the below categories. In some instances, an open search may need to be listed in more than spot below. Consider adding a link to the job announcement so that other users can find the job description quickly. Please start each new sub-entry with a "star." When adding news about a search, finish your note with the date in parentheses. This keeps entries easy to read and makes development over time more clear. Thanks!
  • Salary data is taken from the AAUP Faculty Salary Survey. Calculations for history are based on the fact that, in 2007-2008, the average assistant professor of history at a private institution earned 90.7 percent of what the average assistant professor at the same institution earned. Similarly, the average assistant professor of history at a public institution earned 84.1 percent of what the average assistant professor at the same institution earned. See "Barely Keeping Up?" by Robert B. Townsend for more details.
  • For some idea of the teaching load at these institutions, the student/faculty ratio from the Petersons.com web site is included.
  • As a measurement of student quality, median SAT scores are included. These were calculated from data available at the CollegeBoard.com web site. The writing portion of the SAT score was excluded from this calculation and converted ACT scores were included.

  • median SAT score: 1315 to 1395
  • Here's a quick heads up from the search committee chair: This is not a job in a history department, although we need someone who can work historically. Although it is not impossible that we would hire a candidate with a Ph.D. in history for this position, because of the mandate that we appoint jointly with English, you will need to be an interdisciplinary scholar who is a plausible candidate in literary studies. Hence it is far more likely that finalists for the position will have a degree in American Studies, Ethnic Studies, Comp Lit, or English. You are invited to contact me (cpotter01@wesleyan.edu) -- I am the search co-chair, and Director of American Studies -- if you are a historian and want some guidance. Best, Claire Potter, Professor of History and American Studies, Wesleyan University.
  • two points to Wesleyan for directness and information! way to embrace the wiki! (though Dr. Potter, some of us with history Ph.D.s actually DO cultural/lit work, so please read our cover letters and don't dismiss us out of hand!)

  • Hi all, Search Committee Member here. We will use this site to keep applicants informed of the progress of the search, particularly as deadlines approach and anxiety levels rise. Right now our plan is to conduct video or phone interviews prior the AHA. We do this so that the entire department can get to know those who make the first cut. A smaller group of faculty will travel to New York and meet again with candidates. I can't say I'll check this page on a daily basis, but if you have any questions, please feel free to post them and I'll answer those that I can.
