The Department of History and Philosophy at Montana State University, Bozeman invites applications for the 2014-2015 Wallace Stegner Distinguished Chair. We encourage applicants -- senior faculty and public intellectuals -- working in the broad spirit of Stegner’s passion for the history of Western lands and people.
The chair is expected to work in residence on her/his research project and share in the intellectual community of the department. We are a well-published, friendly department with a thriving graduate program situated in a spectacular mountain environment. The chair will also present the annual Wallace Stegner Lecture usually held in the Spring semester.
We seek applicants for the full academic year or a semester-long appointment. Funding is negotiable and might include sabbatical supplement, a semester at salary, or a significant research stipend.
We will begin reviewing submissions on December 15, 2013 until the appointment is filled.
