The Center for Western Civilization, Thought & Policy and the History Department invite applications to join our new, interdisciplinary community of Scholars in Residence. Selections will be made on the basis of candidates’ relevance to our theme for the year, “American Identities”, as well as on their ability to promote the larger mission of the CWCTP, as described below. The CWCTP Scholar in Residence is a one-year, non-tenure-track, Scholar-in-Residence appointment. An extended letter of interest should describe in some detail the candidate’s fit with the Center’s theme and larger mission, and it should also describe a research or intellectual project to be accomplished over the course of the year. The letter should articulate the intellectual significance of this project, the sort of tangible results that will be achieved by the end of the appointment, and how those results can contribute to the Center, the Department of History and the broader university community. 

The History Department is specifically interested in applicants whose research and teaching expertise is in modern Latin American history and who contend with the theme of “American Identities” from Latin Americanist perspectives. In addition, applications should include a CV and list of at least three references. 

Scholars in Residence should expect to teach two courses per academic year (one per semester). They will participate regularly in the extended community of both the Center and the Department of History through attendance at lectures, engagement with students, and participation in the academic life of the University.

The anticipated starting salary is $40,000.00

The University of Colorado offers excellent benefits, including medical, dental, retirement, paid time off, tuition benefit and ECO Pass. The University of Colorado Boulder is one of the largest employers in Boulder County and offers an inspiring higher education environment.

Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in History or a related discipline at the time of appointment. We particularly welcome applications from new PhDs and from established scholars with partial sabbatical funding.

Review of applications will begin on April 1 and will continue until the position is filled.
