University of CA-Los Angeles Assistant Professor Position
The Bunche Center for African American Studies invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position to begin Fall 2010. This is a joint appointment in which the successful candidate will be housed in a disciplinary department and split his or her time equally between the department and African American Studies. We are especially interested in outstanding recent Ph.D.s focusing their research and teaching on these aspects of African American communities: family and community, inequality, gender, health or culture broadly defined. Scholars in all humanities fields (e.g., English, History, Theatre, Linguistics, and Philosophy) are encouraged to apply as well.
We have no preference with regard to methodology, but are especially interested in candidates employing innovative and/or mixed methods. Both new and recent Ph.D.s are invited to apply; candidates with Ph.D. pending must complete the requirements for their doctoral degree in advance of the appointment, July 1, 2010.
Applicants should send a dossier including: (1) a vita listing published and unpublished papers, (2) a letter of application describing current and projected research activities as well as teaching experience and interests, and (3) two or three pieces of written work. Applicants who have not yet completed the Ph.D. must include at least two dissertation chapters, and one of their references must be a letter from their dissertation advisor that includes a timeline for completion. Please arrange for at least three references to send letters under separate cover. All materials should be addressed to:
Director, Bunche Center Search Committee, UCLA Bunche Center for African American Studies, 160 Haines Hall, Box 951545, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1545, by July 15, 2009. We cannot accept electronic applications; please use traditional mail.
