The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to research, teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, and service to the department. This position carries a five-course equivalency workload, which normally means teaching four courses over three quarters and carrying other academic and service responsibilities.

We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing women and minorities who are underrepresented in higher education careers (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background), and who have experience in equity and diversity with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

This will be a joint appointment, with teaching responsibilities split evenly between the Department of African-American and African Diaspora Studies (AAADS) and Latino Studies (LATS), which is housed in the Program of Race, Migration and Indigeneity (RMI). The candidate’s tenure home will be in AAADS.

Candidates should be innovative scholar-teachers who conceptualize race, ethnicity, indigeneity, class, and other forms of identity in intersectional ways and who work to cross-pollinate ideas among various fields of inquiry. We welcome applications from candidates working on topics such as Afro-Latino/a/x and Afro-Indigenous communities; urban policy; health inequities; social movements; immigration and citizenship; intersectional feminism(s), sexuality, and representation of people of color in media, music, literature, religion, and art. We are particularly interested in candidates whose work transcends direct comparisons between the experiences of distinct ethnic or racial groups and focuses instead on how multiple forms of personal identity can intersect to shape new patterns of social, cultural, and political change, as well as a new understanding of the past.

Indiana University and the College of Arts and Sciences are committed to building and supporting a diverse, inclusive, and equitable community of students and scholars. The successful candidate should be pursuing a program of original research resulting in publications in books and academic journals; have experience in graduate and undergraduate instruction and a strong interest in mentoring student research; and a commitment to program, department, college, and university service appropriate with rank.

Established in 1970, AAADS is one of only seventeen doctoral-degree granting institutions in that discipline in the country, and its mission is focused on understanding the lived experience of African Americans in the United States and their relationships with diaspora communities from Africa, South America, and the Caribbean. Latino Studies, founded in 1999, is grounded in interdisciplinary research and teaching. By joining RMI in 2018, it has begun building closer ties with other IU departments and programs devoted to the study of race and ethnicity (African-American, Asian American, and Native American studies) and with core disciplines and interdisciplinary units in the arts, humanities and sciences. RMI is a pioneering multi-disciplinary unit that investigates the complex social dynamics of race, ethnicity, human movement, and power relationships. The primary geographical focus of RMI is in the United States, but extends to transnational and diasporic scholarship as well. A successful applicant will have the rare opportunity to help build a new program focused on the meanings of intersectionality, while also making significant contributions to the research, teaching, and service missions of both AAADS and Latinx Studies.

The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in hand before the beginning of classes in August 2019.

  • Interested candidates should submit application materials online to http://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/6546. This position starts in Fall 2019.

University of Chicago (IL) - Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow/Assistant Professor in Migration and Multicultural SocietiesEdit

The Department of Comparative Human Development invites applications for a social scientist whose research focuses on individuals in the context of migration and multicultural societies; scholars may approach this topic from one of a number of disciplinary perspectives. Topics of particular interest include but are not limited to: migration and the life course, socialization and intergenerational transmission in multicultural settings, bilingualism and learning, gender, kinship and sexuality; citizenship ideologies and attitudes towards cultural difference in host countries (e.g., tolerance, human rights, pluralism, social intelligence, etc.) and mental health. The ideal candidate will have an ambitious and innovative research program with strong theoretical and empirical components. A goal of this search is to increase the diversity of the faculty in the Department, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups historically underrepresented in the discipline, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or Alaskan Native.

The Department of Comparative Human Development is an interdisciplinary program at the critical edge of thought and research in the social sciences. Faculty and students conduct interdisciplinary, holistic, and comparative research focused on individual lives within various, changing, and heterogeneous contexts. They draw on methods and concepts from anthropology, biological and developmental psychology, educational research, sociology, and statistics. They are committed to examining humans as simultaneously sociocultural, biological, and psychological beings who change over developmental and historical time. For more information please see our website: https://humdev.uchicago.edu.

The successful candidate will be appointed as either an Assistant Professor, or as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow with an initial one or two-year appointment at the faculty rank of instructor. Candidates are expected to have the PhD in hand, and no more than two years of postdoctoral experience, by the time the appointment begins. This initial period is intended to serve in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period, during which Provost Fellows will teach one course per year. At the end of the initial term, Provost Fellows will ordinarily be promoted to Assistant Professor.

Applicants must apply online at the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website: https://tinyurl.com/y7blnufw. Applications must include: 1) a cover letter; 2) a current curriculum vitae; 3) three letters of reference; 4) a research statement addressing current research and future plans for research; and 5) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy. Writing samples may be requested at a later date.

  • The review of the applications will begin on October 20, 2018 and continue until the position is filled or the search is closed. The position will begin on or after July 1, 2019.

University of Chicago (IL) - Associate Professor/Full Professor, Race and CapitalismEdit

The Social Science Division at the University of Chicago invites applications from scholars working on Race and Capitalism. The appointment would be based in the Anthropology, Political Science or Sociology department. A goal of this search is to increase the diversity of the faculty in the Division, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups historically underrepresented in the discipline, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or Alaskan Native.

We are broadly searching for scholars who theoretically and empirically explore the interaction of race and capitalism. The work could be focused on a historical period such as that of slavery or modern imperialism; a specific institution such as the workplace; on concepts such as labor, credit, or finance; on a specific theoretical question such as the meaning of justice in the context of communities affected by high levels of economic and racial inequality; or a particular empirical problem such as shifting participation rates by race and ethnicity in various sectors of the financialized U.S. economy. While we are very much open to various approaches to the study of race and capitalism, we are interested in scholarship on the intersection of these two phenomena, rather than work exploring one or the other.

The successful candidate will be appointed as either an Associate Professor, or as a Full Professor. Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2019.

  • Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged. Applications must be submitted online, at the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website, https://tinyurl.com/yau7ukrf, and are required to include 1) a cover letter; 2) a curriculum vitae including the names and contact information for at least three references who may be contacted at a later date; 3) a research and teaching statement, including concrete descriptions of future plans for research and teaching philosophy; and 4) one or more recently published chapters, articles, or books.

The successful candidate will be appointed as either an Assistant Professor, or as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow with an initial one or two-year appointment at the faculty rank of instructor. The appointment as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow is intended to provide some relief from teaching in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period outside of the University. During the term as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow, the successful candidate will teach only one course per year. At the end of the initial term, Provost Postdoctoral Fellows will ordinarily be promoted to Assistant Professor.

  • Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2019. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged. Candidates are expected to have the PH.D and no more than two years of postdoctoral experience by the start of the appointment.

University of Oregon (OR) - TT Asst. Professor of Ethnic Studies (Race and Sport)Edit

The Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Oregon (UO) seeks to hire an Assistant Professor specializing in Race and Sport beginning Fall 2019. This tenure track position is broadly conceived and we welcome applications from scholars working on any dimension of race and sport, including, but not limited to, cultural studies, media, history, social science approaches and urban studies. We especially encourage applications from scholars engaged in intersectional analyses, including gender, sexuality, comparative and relational approaches, as well as transnational perspectives. The department is open to expertise in any field of ethnic studies, including African American, Asian American, Chicanx/Latinx, Native Studies, Pacific Islander and Arab-American Studies. The successful applicant will be expected to teach introductory, upper-division, and eventually graduate courses. It is expected that the candidate will develop both specialized courses in sport and race, as well as other, more general courses that contribute to the major and our proposed Ph.D. program.

The successful candidate will have earned a Ph.D. by Fall 2019. Candidates must show evidence of and be committed to scholarly excellence, as seen in publications, grants, fellowships and research collaborations. Evidence of teaching excellence in ethnic studies is required as well.

The department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Oregon (UO) is a vibrant and collegial community that is poised for growth. Currently, the department ranks number three in terms of undergraduate ethnic studies degrees granted in the US. The department offers a BA/BS in ethnic studies; a minor in ethnic studies; administers a minor in Native American Studies; and is in the process of developing a Ph.D. program. In 2017 Oregon became the first state in the US to require Ethnic Studies at the K-12 level, as well as coursework on Oregon’s Indigenous peoples. This faculty line is part of a broader effort at UO to develop sport as a serious site of scholarship across numerous disciplines, including journalism, business, and design.

All questions should be directed to: Laura Pulido, Department Head, lpulido@uoregon.edu

VISITING POSITIONS / Limited-Term AppointmentsEdit

Princeton University (USA:NJ) - Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, Fung Global Fellows Edit

  • Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Each year the program selects six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. Candidates will be considered in three categories: (1) Four of the fellowships will be awarded to early-career scholars employed in the equivalent of tenure-track positions who are expected to return to their position. (2) One fellowship is set aside for a postdoctoral research associate who at the time of application does not have a tenure-track faculty appointment. (3) In addition, one fellowship will be awarded to a senior scholar. All candidates must be based outside the United States.
  • During the academic year 2019-20, the Fung Global Fellows Program theme will be “Thinking Globally.” How people have thought about the planet has informed the institutions, norms, and policies that have pulled it together and torn it apart. For centuries, ideas of free trade, human rights or global governance have framed cooperation and competition, order and disorder. Such ideas have also spawned border-crossing movements, from campaigns to end slavery to commitments to reduce carbon emissions. In turn, global thinking and action have often reinforced commitments to national ideas and efforts to curb global exchange. The goal of this research theme is to explore how ideas framed the understanding of interests and the making of institutions that have yielded commonness and conflict across and within borders. We also want to understand how these ideas and practices came into being through scientific networks, foundations, and think tanks. The Program will also examine rival world ideas that have challenged prevailing orthodoxies. Nowadays, with cooperative norms under challenge, global institutions under stress, and a century of guiding ideas about global convergence in doubt, we want to take a broad look at where these ideas came from, their effects, and the prospects for intellectual renewal or rethinking. The goal of the 2019-20 Fung Global Fellows cohort will be to explore the ways people learned to rely on or to reject strangers far away, as well as to imagine how global relationships came to be and could be different. We welcome applicants from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields from the sciences to the humanities whose work addresses this set of themes in any historical period or world region.
  • All candidates must reside outside the United States. To be eligible, postdoctoral applicants must have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. before August 1, 2019 but cannot have received their degrees more than three years prior to the start of the appointment on September 1, 2019. Early-career fellows must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent no earlier than September 1, 2009. Senior scholars, who have received their doctorates before 2009, must have faculty appointments and a record of scholarly accomplishment in the designated theme of the program. Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of a candidate’s proposed research project, the relationship of the project to the program theme, the candidate’s scholarly record, and the ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program.
