Assistant Professor in Latinx politics

Job Description

The Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago invites applications for an Assistant Professor in Latinx politics. While we are primarily interested in someone who studies Latinx politics within the United States, we welcome applications from scholars who also investigate these issues from a comparative or transnational perspective that includes a focus on the U.S. Among the goals of this search is increasing the diversity of the faculty in the Department of Political Science, and we, therefore, welcome applicants from groups that are historically underrepresented in the academy.

Qualifications

Candidates must have completed all requirements for the PhD degree prior to the start of the appointment.

Application Instructions

Applicants must apply at the University of Chicago's Interfolio website at http://apply.interfolio.com/92390. Applications must include: 1) a cover letter that, among other things, describes the applicant's prior and potential contributions to diversity in the context of academic research, teaching, and service; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a research statement addressing current research and future plans for research; 4) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy; 5) two samples of scholarly writing; and 6) three letters of reference.

To be considered, those interested must apply through The University of Chicago's Academic Recruitment job board, which uses Interfolio to accept applications.

Review of applications will begin on September 16, 2021. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.

Equal Opportunity Statement

We seek a diverse pool of applicants who wish to join an academic community that places the highest value on rigorous inquiry and encourages diverse perspectives, experiences, groups of individuals, and ideas to inform and stimulate intellectual challenge, engagement, and exchange.
