The successful candidate will be a scholar whose qualitative research engages with any aspect of Asian American experiences, which encompass a wide range of immigration histories, national origins, ethnic identities, and cultural practices. The candidate's area of expertise is open, but will ideally focus on pressing public issues, for example: equity, diversity, and inclusion; the social impact of immigration policies; human health and well-being; political participation and voting rights; media and disinformation; economic disparities; institutionalized racism; environmental justice; or issues in cultural studies.
The Honors College is a vibrant undergraduate unit at the University of Oklahoma with a faculty of teacher-scholars who are engaged in the interdisciplinary instruction of exceptional students from across the university. The successful candidate will teach a 2/2 load of introductory and advanced Honors seminars in their areas of expertise. The University of Oklahoma is an R-1 university that provides faculty with strong support for research, as well as innovative teaching activities.
The successful candidate will be required to have PhD. in hand by August 15, 2022. The successful candidate will show promise for a robust research and publication agenda. The ideal candidate demonstrates commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching. The ideal candidate prioritizes community-engaged scholarship and teaching, and will strive to build collaborative, reciprocal, and enduring relationships not only with colleagues across the university but also with one or more of the Asian American communities in Oklahoma City and beyond.
