How about an endowed chair in Civil War and Reconstruction history at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts?
Civil War and Reconstruction/ Endowed Chair: Stonehill College seeks a candidate for a tenured associate or full professor position in Civil War and Reconstruction and African American history (1848-1900). The successful candidate will begin appointment as the first Lawrence and Theresa Salameno Chair in History (three-year term with possibility for renewal). A commitment to undergraduate teaching and a strong record of scholarship are required. The Salameno Chair, the first endowed chair in the College’s history, offers a creative intellectual and professional opportunity for a teacher/scholar who can generate intellectual excitement around his/her area of expertise in ways appropriate to an undergraduate institution.
The Department of History at West Virginia University is soliciting nominations and applications for an Eberly Distinguished Professorship in Civil War Studies, to begin August 16, 2007.
I’ve come across more and more positions focused specifically on the Civil War/Reconstruction/Southern History over the past few years. Perhaps as we get closer to the Civil War Sesquicentennial we will see even more.
