The American Studies Program at Williams College seeks to make a tenure-track appointment in Asian American Studies, to start July 1, 2022, at the rank of Assistant Professor (in exceptional cases, a more advanced appointment may be considered). The Ph.D. is expected by the time the appointment begins. The program seeks to complement and expand the expertise of existing faculty who teach Asian American topics, at a time when the College is working towards building an Asian American Studies program.

We are particularly interested in scholars doing comparative ethnic studies work, especially at the intersection of Asian American and African American/Black studies, but we welcome applications from  those working on other topics as well.  We also have a strong preference for those who demonstrate a commitment to the interdisciplinary nature and methodologies of American Studies in their research and teaching. The teaching load is two courses per semester and a three-week-long winter-study course every other January.
