The Colorado College Race and Ethnic Studies Program seeks an experienced scholar and teacher currently at the advanced assistant, associate, or full rank to guide the program through an exciting period of unprecedented growth as a Thematic Minor. While discipline and area of research are open, the successful candidate will have a strong commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and research and will be willing to teach both introductory and advanced courses that focus on the comparative study of racialization and diasporas and their social, cultural, and political effects. If hired at the associate or full level the successful candidate will be expected to serve as director of the program after tenure and to further develop a curriculum and campus presence that are focused on issues of race, ethnicity, and migrations in the context of a liberal arts education for the 21st century. The College is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community. Candidates who contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply, identifying experiences that will add to that diversity.

The successful candidate will also be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and an active research program. We are especially interested in candidates who can connect their scholarly interests to communities beyond the College campus and who are dedicated to increasing the diversity of the curriculum, faculty, and student body.
The Colorado College calendar, called the Block Plan, is a unique academic system in which professors teach, and students take, one course at a time. Each block is three and a half weeks long, with an academic year of eight and a half blocks; faculty teach six blocks per year. The intensive modular schedule is well suited to in-depth faculty-student interactions, including research collaborations.
To be considered for the position, applicants must be at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank at another institution by the August 2014 start date. Please include the following materials in your application: Cover Letter, CV, 3 letters of recommendation, Statement of Teaching Philosophy, Statement of Research Agenda, and one writing sample from an already published piece. Deadline for application is November 15. While attendance at the 2013 American Studies Association Annual Meeting is not required for advancement in the interview process, interviews for the position will take place during the meeting, November 21-24. Please feel free to call the Director of Race and Ethnic Studies, Claire Oberon Garcia (719.389.6510), if you have any questions or would like more information about the position.
