About Clark University:
Founded in 1887, Clark was one of the first all-graduate institutions in the United States. Today the University is a highly-ranked, student-centered institution educating approximately 2,350 undergraduate and 1,150 graduate students to be imaginative and contributing citizens of the world and to advance the frontiers of knowledge and understanding through rigorous scholarship and creative effort. This commitment to scholarship and inquiry reflects the University's commitment to "challenge convention and change our world" and to address issues of critical importance to society. It is also reflected by Clark's many national and international distinctions, including recognition for its diversity and inclusion efforts, innovation, community engagement and impact, as a top green campus, and for having a distinguished geography and international development program. Clark has also been included in the groundbreaking Colleges that Change Lives guide since it was first published in 1996.
Clark is located in Worcester, Massachusetts, a dynamic, diverse city "on the rise." The second largest city in New England, Worcester is home to 11 institutions of higher learning and is increasingly recognized for its growing healthcare and biotechnology communities, its thriving cultural scene, and as a vibrant food hub.
The Department of History and the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University invite applications for the Robert Aram, Marianne Kaloosdian, and Stephen and Marian Mugar Chair in Armenian Genocide Studies to begin in fall 2023. The appointment will be for a tenure-track professorship at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor. A primary research and teaching field in the Armenian Genocide and modern Armenian history, the ability to teach broad survey courses as well as upper-level courses in and beyond this area (e.g., the history of the Middle East and comparative genocide studies) and to train and mentor graduate students in Armenian Genocide Studies are required.
The successful candidate is expected to perform as or become a leading scholar of the field, to secure external support for the Strassler Center's educational and research agenda, and to contribute to other interdisciplinary programs and research foci at Clark University such as Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies, Women and Gender Studies, Urban Studies, and Peace and Conflict Studies.
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the diversification of the department and university more broadly through their record on diversity, background diversity, or both. Candidates must have PhD in History or a related field in hands no later than August 2023.
