Emory College of Arts and Sciences in Atlanta, Georgia announces a special initiative to recruit and support several tenure-track and tenured faculty (advanced assistant and/or associate/full professors) in the area of contemporary LatinX studies in the humanities and social sciences. Faculty whose research advances this emerging field of scholarship, who bring a demonstrated commitment to mentoring a diverse student body, and who are eager to contribute to the University’s ambitious goals of scholarly excellence, diversity and inclusivity, and interdisciplinarity are encouraged to apply. This search will complement Emory’s growing distinction in the scholarship of race and the African American experience, recent faculty appointments in the departments of Spanish and Portuguese and Religion, our exceptional archival holdings and special collections in the Rose Library, partnerships with Atlanta-based institutions, and a commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship and collaboration. Departments participating in this multi-field search include: African American Studies, Anthropology, Art History, Economics, English, Film and Media Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, Sociology, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Research and teaching expertise including but not limited to the following fields are of particular interest: LatinX and Afro LatinX literature, art, and culture, philosophy, citizenship, race, gender, sexuality, religion, political economy of migration, labor, and health. All applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to teaching and mentoring a diverse student body. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline/field.
Review of applications will begin October 8, 2018. Full consideration will be given to all applications received within 30 days. Review will continue until positions are filled. At this stage, we ask applicants to submit a cover letter, names and contact information of three references, and a CV. Candidates’ cover letters should include a discussion of their experience and vision regarding the teaching and mentorship of students of diverse backgrounds.
Emory University is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
