University of California - San Diego, History
Associate Professor: Chicanx and/or Latinx History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||California, United States|
The Department of History in the Division of Arts & Humanities at UC San Diego invites applications for a full-time tenured Associate Professor specializing in Chicanx and/or Latinx history to begin July 1, 2022. Period, region, and specialization are open. Scholars whose work addresses im/migration, Afro-Latinidades, relational race and ethnicity, and/or the nineteenth century are particularly encouraged to apply. This position is one of 14 new ladder-rank faculty positions in the Latinx Cluster Hire Initiative (LCHI) at UC San Diego. The LCHI aims to increase faculty diversity, innovative research, and culturally relevant curriculum and mentorship through increased engagement and collaboration between various departments across campus with the Chicanx and Latinx Studies (CLS) and Latin American Studies (LAS) programs.
Faculty hired under LCHI will be expected to design and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Chicanx and/or Latinx history, as well as the successful candidate’s thematic areas of expertise. They will also be expected to teach courses that align with the CLS and LAS academic programs, serve as faculty affiliates in CLS and/or LAS, and mentor undergraduate students in one or both programs.
Faculty hired under LCHI will have multiple opportunities to contribute to UC San Diego’s transformation from an emergent Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) to a full-status HSI that meets the curricular and cultural needs of Latinx, URM, and first-generation students. This includes faculty engagement with scholars across disciplines to address issues of race and racism, access and equity, and social and political debates pertinent to Chicanx, Latinx, and Latin American Studies, while also working within their home departments and professional communities.
We seek candidates whose research, teaching, and service will advance UC San Diego’s transition to HSI and/or anti-racism, anti-oppression, equity, and social justice with a focus on the Latinx/Chicanx community. We especially welcome candidates whose professional experience, community engagement, and personal background have facilitated their understanding of and ability to better serve students from traditionally underrepresented communities in higher education. Faculty are expected to have an inclusive approach to mentoring and advising that incorporates working with women and underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students.
Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on the University of California pay scales.
Please submit applications prior to the Initial Review Date of January 10, 2022.
