The candidate will also have opportunities to participate in the college’s vibrant Latin American, Latinx, and Caribbean Studies program (https://www.holycross.edu/academics/programs/latin-american-latinx-and-caribbean-studies).
This position carries a 3-2 teaching load with a full-salary one-semester research leave prior to tenure review, and generous sabbatical and fellowship leaves for tenured faculty. Tenure-track faculty are eligible for travel support and reimbursement of relocation costs within the College’s published policies. All full-time appointments offer competitive salaries and include full benefits.
