Faculty Search in African American Studies

The Department of African American Studies at Emory University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor training in one of the social science disciplinary areas who will engage research and teaching focused on the Political Economy of Race. We seek scholars working on racialized structures of inequality. The successful candidate will 1) provide evidence of research projects in-progress or published; 2) demonstrate commitment to undergraduate teaching in diverse settings; and 3) envision, and be prepared to implement, cross-disciplinary collaborations with other Emory Departments. Teaching responsibilities include two courses per semester. The Ph.D is required by the time of appointment.

Applicants should know that this hire in the Political Economy of Race is proceeding alongside similar Assistant Professor searches in the social sciences at Emory University: one in Sociology for the Sociology of Race and the other in Oxford Division of Social Sciences (an Emory campus) for Critical Race Theory.

Please submit a letter of interest, inclusive of current and planned research; a teaching statement that describes experiences with, and commitment to, teaching a diverse student body; curriculum vitae, three letters of support; and a writing sample of no more than 25 pages.
