The Department of Asian Studies at Hobart and William Smith Colleges invites applications for a three-course position in South Asian history for the 2015-2016 academic year.  We welcome scholars representing various specialized fields and interpretive approaches, and ABDs or PhDs. Research interests are open although the candidate must be willing to teach both modern and early modern topics.  Teaching will include a co-taught cornerstone course for Asian Studies (ASN 101), and surveys on South Asian history.

Hobart and William Smith Colleges are a highly selective residential liberal arts institution located in a small, diverse city in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.  With an enrollment of approximately 2,200, the Colleges offer 62 majors and minors from which students choose two areas of concentration, one of which must be an interdisciplinary program.  Creative and extensive programs of international study and public service are also at the core of the Colleges’ mission.  Hobart and William Smith Colleges are committed to attracting and supporting faculty and staff that fully represent the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the nation and actively seek applications from under-represented groups. The Colleges do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, age, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression or any other protected status.
