      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.

      The successful candidates will play a significant role in the graduate
      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.

      Please send application letter, curriculum vitae, placement file, and
      recommendations to Professor George C. Rable, Department of History,
      University of Alabama, Box 870212, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35487-0212. Fax:
      1-205-348-0670. E-mail: grable@.... Applications will be
      reviewed as received and interviews scheduled for the Southern Historical
      Association meeting in Fort Worth (November 3-6, 1999) and possibly at
      the American Historical Association Meeting in Chicago (January 6-9,
      2000). Final deadline for submitting materials is December 1, 1999. The
      University of Alabama is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer
      and welcomes applications from women and members of minority groups.
