DESCRIPTION OF POSITION: The Department of History at Carnegie Mellon invites applications for a full-time (9-month), position as Assistant Teaching Professor at Carnegie Mellon’s Qatar campus beginning in fall 2019.
While the field of specialization is open, we particularly invite candidates whose research covers the fields of American, Latin American, South Asian, East Asian, and/or Gender/Women’s history.
Teaching load is 2/2. A successful applicant will be expected to teach a variety of elective courses within their subject area, and may also be asked to teach Global History courses depending on campus needs. The candidate will also be expected to work with other history faculty to teach and further develop the Carnegie Mellon Qatar history minor program.
Carnegie Mellon’s Qatar campus is a highly selective branch campus of Carnegie Mellon University. Serving a diverse student body since 2004, we offer undergraduate majors in Biological Sciences, Business Administration, Computational Biology, Computer Science, and Information Systems. Current enrollment is approximately 400 students representing 35 countries.

APPOINTMENT AND RANK: Assistant Teaching Professor is a non-tenure-track faculty career position with provision for renewal and promotion to Associate Teaching and Full Teaching Professor. Full Teaching Professors must fulfill two criteria: (1) to be outstanding educators within Carnegie Mellon, for example, through excellence in classroom teaching, curricular development, program leadership, and student advising and mentoring; and (2) to be nationally or internationally known for contributions to education or to research. Assistant and Associate Teaching faculty must demonstrate that they will, in due course, fulfill these criteria. Salary is competitive and commensurate with an overseas posting.
Requirements include a PhD in History.
About Carnegie Mellon University
Carnegie Mellon Qatar was established in 2004 at the invitation of Qatar Foundation. Students who attend CMU-Q have identical graduation requirements as those on the main campus. Graduates have CMU degrees, conferred from the Pittsburgh campus.
The Carnegie Mellon education begins with a broad introduction to the liberal arts and sciences during the first semesters, a focus on major core classes in the middle semesters, and deepening and broadening of scope in the last semesters through advanced electives. Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar uses this approach in five undergraduate disciplines.
