The Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota occasionally needs teaching specialists or lecturers to teach courses that cannot be staffed by regular faculty or graduate students. Openings of this kind sometime occur for teaching evening and summer session, as well as day courses. The courses are primarily introductory or survey courses. Potential openings for the 2008-09 academic year may include African history, early American history, Europe/Germany, international world, ancient Israel, and modern Japan. These positions are temporary and can either be full-time or part-time. This search will establish a "pool" of instructors. Applicants will be selected from this pool on an as-needed basis through the academic year. Appointments may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance. Appointment dates: Fall 2008 (8/25/08-1/7/09), Spring 2009 (1/8/09-5/24/09), May Session/Summer 2009.
