Ten years after the death of Hepzibah Smith, Voldemort returns to Hogwarts, where Dumbledore refuses to grant him a teaching job. He then curses the Defence Against the Dark Arts position, and since that day, no professor has stayed for more than one year in that post.

Timeline Notes

Again we don't know exactly when this happened, but since most evidence points to Dumbledore becoming headmaster in 1956 [Y-24], Voldemort couldn't have come looking for a job much sooner than this.
