Tenure-track Search at Brandies University

Brandies University is currently conducting a tenure-track search for an assistant or early associate professor to be jointly appointed in the African and Afro-American Studies Department and Women's and Gender Studies Program. They seek candidates whose scholarship addresses issues of race, gender, class and sexuality in relation to people and/or cultures of African descent. Applications should be submitted by November 1, 2013.

While discipline and specialization are open, they strongly encourage candidates with expertise in the social sciences or the creative arts. Candidates should demonstrate a developed research agenda, a promising record of publication, and excellent teaching performance.
This search is part of a new cluster hire initiative in African Diaspora Studies that we envision resulting in the hiring of 4-5 new faculty at Brandeis, in related fields, over the next 2-3 years. A tenure-track search in Latin American history, with a focus on the African diaspora, is also being conducted.
The full-time position carries a 2-2 teaching load, with the successful candidate teaching introductory and advanced courses in both WGS and AAAS. Service responsibilities will be shared equally between AAAS and WGS. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the core mission and institutional developments of both AAAS and WGS. Ph.D. must be in hand by the start of the appointment.
Review of applications will begin November 1, 2013 and continue until the position is filled. Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, an article or chapter length writing sample, and three letters of reference on AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/3100. Questions about the position can be directed to: Wendy Cadge, Chair, Women's and Gender Studies Program (wcadge@brandeis.edu) and Chad Williams, Chair, African and Afro-American Studies Department (chadw@brandeis.edu). Brandeis is an equal opportunity employer committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and strongly encourages applications from women and members of historically underrepresented groups.
