Tenure-Track Position in Native American Studies


The Program in American Studies at Williams College invites applications for a full-time position in Native-American Studies, to begin July 1, 2018. Our expectation is to make a tenure-track hire, at the rank of assistant professor, but we are also open to making a senior appointment. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in American Studies or in a related discipline, but period and research specialization are open. The successful candidate will be able to teach a range of courses in Native American Studies and American Studies. Furthermore, the American Studies program at Williams, among the oldest in the US, strongly values interdisciplinary work and is one of the college’s key sites for comparative work on race, ethnicity, and diaspora; we are deeply committed to building Native American Studies not only within the unit but at the college more broadly.

Information about the program can be found on the website.
