These positions are part of an ongoing multi-year, multi-departmental strategic initiative across the schools of Natural Sciences; Engineering; and, Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts to build excellence in the broad area of Inequality, Power, and Social Justice (IPSJ). IPSJ is one of six strategic research pillars at UC Merced. IPSJ brings together scholars across disciplines and methodological backgrounds for whom historical and contemporary issues of inequality, power, and social justice are of central analytical focus. By incorporating a wide range of approaches, we aim to develop a richer understanding of how inequality and power are produced and reproduced as well as of their social, political, and personal consequences. We aim to develop a critical analysis of how systems of inequality and power interact with social justice and change. In this focus, we recognize and engage with our location in the Central Valley of California, a region marked by great ethnic diversity and high levels of poverty. The IPSJ pillar will provide space for cross-disciplinary discussion, as well as research and teaching, with the aim of theoretical and methodological inclusivity. We value scholarship that engages with the local, national, and international community both in the production and in the dissemination of knowledge.

We seek to hire scholars whose research fits into either or both of the following themes: 1) identity, experience, and representation ; and, 2) structural and institutional inequality .
