College of Liberal Arts – Interdisciplinary Cohort Hire in Studies of Racial Retrenchment

University of Texas - Austin, College of Liberal Arts 

Description

The College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for up to five open-rank, tenure-track or tenured positions to begin Fall 2020. This interdisciplinary cohort hire is focused on recruiting scholars with ambitious research agendas who address racial retrenchment, or the losses and setbacks that often follow racial justice and diversity gains. Scholars who study race in relation to gender, sexuality, disability, indigeneity, migration, the environment, mass incarceration, poverty, socio-economic class, capitalism, populism, fascism, global ideological trends, and other systems of power are especially welcomed.

 

Qualifications

The successful candidate will provide intellectual leadership and vision within the program(s) they join, with a willingness to teach core courses and those pertaining to their research at the undergraduate and Ph.D. levels, and direct dissertations and honors theses. The successful candidate will also contribute to the service mission of the department/program, initiative, college, and university. Candidates from all methodological and theoretical backgrounds will be considered. Scholars with a demonstrated record of working to address issues of racial equity in their respective field(s) are particularly encouraged to apply. Salary and rank are competitive and dependent on qualifications and experience.

 

Application Instructions

These hires are part of a new multidisciplinary project at UT called GRIDS—The Gender, Race, Indigeneity, Disability, and Sexuality Studies Initiative. Candidates’ tenure lines will be housed in one or more of the following departments in the College of Liberal Arts: African and African Diaspora Studies, Mexican American and Latina/o Studies, Anthropology, Sociology, and American Studies. Candidates will have the opportunity to build research partnerships and mentoring relationships with their cohort through GRIDS. Associate and Full Professors will have the option of holding a joint appointment with any two departments named above, or if appropriate, the opportunity to hold a 50% teaching appointment in the Native American and Indigenous Studies Program, the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies, or the Center for Asian American Studies.
