These activities will contribute to Clark’s undergraduate concentration in HGS and the History Department’s PhD program in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies. The visiting professor will be a full participant in the Strassler Center scholarly community, attending lectures and events, mentoring students, and presenting their research.
The successful candidate will possess a doctorate in History, strong teaching credentials, and research publications. Applicants whose research demonstrates strong expertise on the Jewish perspective and experience of the Holocaust will be most competitive.
