The Department of History, Bates College, in Lewiston, Maine, invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Chinese history to begin work August 1, 2015. The Department of History seeks candidates who are capable of situating China in its broader global contexts and who are strongly committed to teaching at the undergraduate level and to research and publication. We seek someone focusing on China since 960 CE, with a preference for those specializing in the history of the Ming (1368-1644 CE) or Qing Dynasties (1644-1912 CE). Responsibilities include a one-semester survey of the full sweep of Chinese history, upper division thematic courses, and senior thesis advising. The annual teaching load is five semester courses. The successful candidate will develop a curriculum centered on transnational and thematic history (e.g. economics, religion, gender, or environment) that complements the existing curricular and scholarly strengths of the department and the college.

The college and the History Department are committed to enhancing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum. We welcome applications from all individuals with the ability to contribute to the college’s continuing commitment to social and cultural diversity, inclusiveness, and the transformative power of our differences. The search committee expects candidates who can contribute to this goal to identify their strengths and experiences in this area.
