The Society of Indiana Pioneers annually awards Society of Indiana Pioneers Fellowships to support research in the field of pioneer Indiana history for the master’s thesis and the doctoral dissertation. The Society of Indiana Pioneers was founded in 1916, during the centennial celebration of Indiana’s statehood, “to honor the memory and the work of the pioneers of Indiana.” Membership includes individuals who have an ancestor who settled in an Indiana county during the pioneer period (generally defined as before 1840, with some exceptions) and people who have an interest in this period of Hoosier history. To fulfill its mission, the Society maintains a significant genealogical database culled from its membership records, sponsors annual spring and fall “pilgrimages” to historical sites within the state, and partners with other history-related organizations.
There will be two $1,000 fellowships awarded annually, one to support research for a master’s thesis in the pioneer period of Indiana history and another for doctoral dissertation research. For the purposes of the fellowship program, the pioneer period of Indiana is defined as pre-1850. Only students at graduate institutions in Indiana are eligible for these fellowships.

Please see https://www.indiana.edu/~vpfaa/saahandbook/index.php/Terms_of_Student_Academic_Appointments for additional information.
Interested applicants should submit a C.V./resume and cover letter explaining interest and qualifications by email to email@example.com no later than Monday, May 4th, 2015.
Successful applicants will be notified in June, 2015 and interviews scheduled soon after. The ideal applicant will be available to schedule an interview in person or via Skype [http://www.skype.com/en/]. Applicants that will be unavailable/abroad during June 2015 are responsible for explaining their situation in their cover letter and working with the Center for an alternative arrangement.
The History Program in the Indiana University Division of Liberal Arts at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) anticipates vacancies for adjunct instructor(s) in a survey class in World History before 1800 (History H108), and in a survey class in World History after 1800 (History H109) during the fall semester of 2015. The classes often are taught as breaking nearer 1500, depending on instructor preference. The section of History H108 will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from noon until 1:15. The section of History H109 will on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00-4:15. Class size for each will probably be in the vicinity of 25-30.
Alternatively, the Program may be open to hiring staff to teach either one or both of the following: H105, American History I; and H106, American History II. The section of H105 will meet at 3:00-4:15 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the section of H106 will meet at 1:30-2:45 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Class size for each will probably be in the vicinity of 20-25.
IUPUC is a nonresidential campus serving traditional and nontraditional students in the south-east-central region of Indiana. About half of all IUPUC students are of non-traditional age, and most IUPUC students are first-generation college students.
Minimum requirements are an active ABD in an appropriate field of History, or a PhD, and some teaching experience. It is understood that not all plausible applicants will have taught a class as instructor of record, and all instructors will find some part of a world history survey a stretch. Pay for an ABD with teaching experience in the IU system will probably be in the vicinity of $2208; in addition there is a modest travel stipend (NOT mileage) for those coming from Bloomington, Indianapolis, or a similar distance. Those with a PhD will receive a slightly higher pay rate.
Those who have previously taught at Columbus, been interviewed at Columbus, or submitted materials at Columbus, are encouraged to apply for this opportunity, as are those who have not had previous contact with IUPUC.
Those holding appointments elsewhere in the IU system will need to be able to fit this appointment within applicable load limits (those unsure of their status should apply). Graduate students will probably require the permission of their adviser and \ or program.
Opportunities for future terms are possible, dependent on campus needs and resources.
Those interested should contact Dr. Doug Gardner, Coordinator of the History Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible. An emailed statement of interest and a brief CV, showing at the minimum education, teaching experience, and a dissertation title will suffice for initial screening. Dr. Gardner’s phone number is 812-348-7206, and his postal address is IUPUC, 4601 Central Avenue, Columbus, Indiana 47203.
