The Department of History at the University of North Texas seeks applications for a full-time lecturer in US History. Additional information about the Department may be found at

Responsibilities include teaching high-enrollment face-to-face and online sections of both halves of US History survey and providing departmental service. The successful candidate will teach the US Survey (although opportunities do exist for upper-level classes as well) and exhibit a commitment to service to the department (undergraduate advising, departmental committees, and the like). The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in history or a closely related field in hand by August 15, 2019, a concentration in US history (field and era of specialization open), and teaching experience in US history.

Applicants will find TWO job postings on the UNT HR website. Both are for lecturers in US history, but the two are not identical. Applicants are encouraged to submit separate applications for both positions, since applicants will not be considered for a position for which they did not apply.
