The School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies (SHPRS) at Arizona State University is pleased to invite applications for a full-time, benefits-eligible, career-track faculty member at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor with a focus on either twentieth-century U.S. History or Public History (period and area open). The anticipated start date for this position is August 1, 2024. This hire will contribute to the program needs of the top-ranked online History MA program. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible, 12-month fiscal-year position with a starting annual salary of $80,000. The fiscal year is July 1 through June 30. As the appointment will begin on August 1, 2024, the salary between August 1, 2024 and June 30, 2025 will be prorated. Subsequent annual renewal is desired, contingent upon satisfactory performance, availability of resources, and the needs of the university. This career-track position includes a path to promotion at the levels of Associate Teaching Professor and Full Teaching Professor. The position is housed within the History faculty on the Tempe campus and residence in Arizona is required. Career-track faculty participate in faculty governance and have access to a variety of career development and funding opportunities within the SHPRS and across the university.

The School seeks applicants committed to outstanding online teaching and effective program administration. The two areas of expertise (20th century U.S. and Public History) reflect separate teaching needs and the successful candidate need not teach or research in both fields. The position’s teaching obligations consist primarily of online, asynchronous graduate courses such as historical methods, research seminars, and electives in the candidate’s area of expertise. The initial teaching load is seven courses per year over 12 months (Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters). Additional functions include mentoring History MA students and supporting the program’s administration and curriculum development. Candidates who are non-US citizens must have current authorization to work in the United States.


Minimum Qualifications:

  • Doctoral degree in History or a related field by time of appointment.
  • Evidence of successful History teaching at the university level
  • Demonstrated commitment to working with faculty, staff, students and communities to advance the principles of the ASU Charter.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Ability to teach courses in 20th Century U.S. History or Public History
  • Experience teaching in an online environment
  • Active professional development agenda
