Dear readers, we wanted to let you know about what looks like a very interesting job announcement. The Department of History at the University of Maryland, College Park is looking for an assistant professor of “emergent capitalism,” focused on the study of Latin America, Asia or Africa. The posting is written rather broadly and leaves room open to specialists in Borderlands history who study parts of these global regions. The individual hired will teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and also mentor graduate students among other duties. This faculty position will also be affiliated with the university’s School of Business.
Although the posting is open until filled, for best consideration, apply by October 1st. Applicants must show strong teaching and research profiles, and also have earned their PhD by fall 2016.
