The Social Sciences Division at the University of Chicago is committed to sustaining leadership in the study of race and ethnicity in the social sciences. To this end, we invite applications for one or more tenure-track position(s) at the rank of Assistant Professor from scholars who engage issues of race and/or ethnicity within established social sciences disciplines or emergent disciplines such as Ethnic and Racial Studies, American Studies, Latina/o Studies, African American Studies, Asian American Studies, Native American Studies, Human Rights, or Justice Studies. This is a division-wide search. Successful candidates will be appointed in one of the following departments: Anthropology, Economics, History, Comparative Human Development, Political Science, Psychology, or Sociology. The Division of Social Sciences is committed to increasing the diversity of the faculty, and we therefore encourage applicants who come from racial, ethnic, and social groups that are underrepresented in academia.
Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2017. Candidates are expected to have the Ph.D. in-hand by the start of the appointment. Review of applications will begin on January 10, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged. Applications must be submitted through the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website, http://tinyurl.com/zd4dhqw.
Applications must include: 1) a cover letter that describes the applicant's prior and potential contributions to diversity in the context of academic research, teaching, and service; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a research statement addressing current research and future plans for research; 4) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy; 5) one sample of scholarly writing (a published article or unpublished paper or chapter); and 6) three letters of reference.
