European/African History Job Posting

Paul Harvey

Excuse my hijacking my own blog just for the day to post a job opening in History at my institution, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I'm hoping this will catch some eyeballs of people in the relevant fields (European and/or African History, ca. 800-1700), who can forward it along to appropriate blogs, listservs, jobsites, etc. The job will be posted in Perspectives and H-Net Job Guide soon, but hasn't been yet. Applications must be submitted electronically here, refer to job opening 808542. Or just go to, and refer to that job opening. Please forward to people you know that may be interested, or who have finishing/recent Ph.D. students working in these fields. We're trying to get the word out as quickly as possible. A representative from the department will be at the AHA to talk informally with prospective candidates.
