The Department of History at Princeton University invites applications from scholars who specialize in the history of the Soviet Union and/or the post-Soviet successor states. The candidate should be prepared to offer an undergraduate lecture course on Soviet and post-Soviet history, as well as upper-level undergraduate courses and graduate courses on the specialized aspects of the history of the USSR and the successor states. Review of files will begin October 15, 2023 and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a research statement outlining the dissertation or book as well as other relevant projects, and a copy of either the dissertation or another substantive writing sample.
