Dear readers, we wanted to let you know that UC San Diego has launched a search this month for an historian of Latin America since 1500. The individual selected must have their PhD in hand by July 1, 2017, when the appointment begins. Preference in the search is given to scholars of South America or the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, “whose research touches on an environmental topic broadly defined, including but not limited to natural/built environments, energy, oceans and transportation, science and technology, space and place, food or commodities, land and agriculture, and public health or disease.”
The Division of Arts and Humanities will begin reviewing applications in November. In the application packet, candidates must summarize their research and teaching experience, and also discuss how they will contribute to equity and diversity on campus through leadership. Interviews will be conducted at next year’s meeting of the American Historical Association in Denver, Colorado.
