Modern Greek History

The Department of History (Faculty of Arts) invites applications for a visiting professorship in Modern Greek History, beginning 1 July 2002. The successful candidate must be an established scholar in Modern Greek History with a focus of specialization in one of three areas: Political History, Social History, or International Relations.

Research qualifications include a completed PhD, or equivalent, and an ongoing program of research in the area of specialization. The successful candidate must have a strong record of achievement in research, teaching, and supervision at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and is expected to provide leadership in the development of a focus area in Modern Hellenic Studies. The ability to develop links with the broader Hellenic Canadian community will be considered an asset. Fluency in Modern Greek at the near native level and in English is required.

The candidate will be appointed to the Department of History in the Faculty of Arts and may be affiliated with the Canadian Centre for German and European Studies. Courses taught will also be part of the European Studies program. Rank is open. Salary is dependent on qualifications and experience. The appointment will be for one or two years, and is renewable, until the Hellenic Chair in Modern Greek History is established. This visiting professorship and the Chair have been endowed by the Hellenic Heritage Foundation, the Greek community of Metropolitan Toronto, and York University. This search and the appointment of a visiting professor is intended to highlight York Universitys growing interest in Hellenic Studies. The Chair is expected to be established by 31 December 2002. For more information, please contact Professor Marlene Shore, Chair of the History Department (address below).

York University, the third largest university in Canada, is located in Toronto, a flourishing multicultural city. York has a strong reputation in History, International Relations, and related interdisciplinary programs. In all of its appointments, the Department of History is keen to attract scholars who have an interest in one or more of the following: cross-cultural contact; war; gender and sexuality; imperial and post-colonial issues.

Applicants should submit a letter of interest, including a curriculum vitae, and names and contact addresses of three referees, to be sent no later than 3 December 2001 to: Professor Marlene Shore, Chair, Department of History, Faculty of Arts, York University, 4700 Keele Street, Toronto, Ontario M3J 1P3 (fax 416-736-5836). Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be considered first for this position.

For many years, York University has had a policy of employment equity including affirmative action for women faculty and librarians. Recently, York has included racial/visible minorities, persons with disabilities and aboriginals in its affirmative action program. Persons who are members of one or more of these groups are encouraged to self-identify during the selection process. Please note that candidates from these three groups will be considered within the priorities of the affirmative action program only if they self-identify. The Department of History welcomes applications from women, racial/visible minorities, persons with disabilities and aboriginal peoples. The affirmative action program can be obtained by calling the Affirmative Action office at 416-736-5713. All positions at York are subject to budgetary approval.
