The Department of History at Georgia State University has posted an opening for three full-time, non-tenure-track lecturers in world history, two specializing in the pre-1500 period and one in the period 1500 to present. Lecturers teach four courses per semester, usually the world history surveys, and are eligible for promotion after five years to senior lecturer.
The Department of History welcomes applicants who are committed to creative, engaging pedagogies, the scholarship of teaching, and the development of learning opportunities beyond the classroom. A Ph.D. in history and evidence of teaching excellence are required qualifications. Application materials should include a cover letter, CV, three letters of recommendation, relevant instructional materials (or Web link), a statement of teaching philosophy and interests, and student and/or colleague teaching evaluations.

For the modern position, questions should be directed to Joe Perry <firstname.lastname@example.org> and application packets submitted to Chair, Modern World Search Committee <email@example.com>.
