Job Openings at Tuscaloosa
- The following announcement recently appeared on the H-NET job listing:
As a result of a University Enhancement Grant from the Provost Nancy S.
Barrett, the Department of History at the University of Alabama announces
a search for two assistant professors in Southern history in any of the
following areas: Southern/Labor history; Southern/Women's history;
Southern/African-American history. The department welcomes candidates
with interests in Alabama history, social history, cultural history, and
civil rights (but excluding constitutional, diplomatic, and military
history). Teaching assignments include large surveys and small honors
courses in American history as well as advanced courses.
One of these positions may involve editorship of the Alabama Review
pending negotiations with the Alabama Historical Association. Applicants
for either of these positions should indicate whether they are interested
in the editorship and should include information in their application
concerning their editorial experience. Lack of interest in the editorship
should not preclude applying for either teaching position.

program as well as in the possible development and launching of a Gulf
South Studies Center. The history department enrolls over 70 graduate
students and the University Libraries have extensive manuscript and
archival collections in Southern history. Candidates must have the Ph.D.
in hand by June 2000. Teaching experience, scholarly research, and
publications preferred. Salary competitive.
