We prefer candidates who prioritize the development of communicative explanations of organizing practice, and who exemplify both theoretical and empirical agility. Topical interests may include (but are not limited to) the character of work amid contemporary capitalism; digital technologies in the context of work and organizing; communicative, immaterial, and affective labor; globalization and transnational flows of organizing; social movements; financialization; governmentality; alternative modes of organizing; and matters of difference such as dis/ability, queer, and postcolonial relations.
The position involves 40% research, 40% teaching (i.e. 2 courses per semester) and 20% service, and it will start August 2016. PhD is expected at the time of appointment, and salary will be commensurate with the level of experience. To apply, candidates should submit a letter of application, a current CV, a copy of 1-2 published articles, evidence of teaching excellence, and contact information (email address and phone) for three qualified reviewers. Applications are accepted electronically at https://www.jobsatcu.com/postings/107954 position number F02922.
