The Program in Jewish Studies and the Department of History at the University of Colorado Boulder invite applications for the Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History. We particularly encourage applications from scholars who specialize in modern European history. This is a tenured senior position open to advanced associate professors and full professors working in History and related disciplines. While the tenure home of the successful candidate will be in the Department of History, we seek applicants who have the interest and vision to play a leadership role in the Program in Jewish Studies. The successful candidate will receive a competitive salary commensurate with their rank and career merit as well as substantial annual endowment funding that can be utilized for purposes such as research and conference travel, programming, graduate student support, and summer salary.
