Call for Applications: Assistant Director of History for the 21st Century

By JesseSpohnholz

Date: January 25, 2022


The Assistant Director of History for the 21st Century will support the Director in the production of the MREs. Their central responsibilities will include the design of digital MREs, the project’s website, and interactive portal(s) for faculty; liaising with authors (who will also be practicing historians) to ensure conformity of skills, language, and depth of content across the MREs; assisting to secure copyright permissions; and assisting to organize public events and training workshops. The Assistant Director should also be capable of producing MREs of their own based on best practices in history pedagogy and up-to-date scholarship in the discipline.

This two-year position will be the rough equivalent of a half-time job with compensation based on experience. There may be a possibility for extension after the first two years. The Assistant Director will report directly to the Director but will also attend and participate in Executive Council meetings. There is no fixed location for work.
