The Department of Latin American and Latino Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, invites applicants for a position as (tenure-track) Assistant Professor or Associate Professor (with tenure), with strong research experience in the field of Comparative Migration and Social Inequality in the Americas. Comparative migration studies are defined broadly to include analyses of gender, labor markets, immigrant integration or adaptation, racial and/or ethnic identity, language retention or acquisition, refugees, or conditions of displacement. Although we are open to methodology, we are particularly interested in applicants who can teach introductory and advanced courses in quantitative methods and/or survey research. Proficiency in a Latin American language is preferred. Possible disciplines include, but are not limited to: Sociology, Demography, Anthropology, Education, Geography, Economics, Politics, Public Policy, Urban Planning or History.
This search is one of two being conducted by the Latin American and Latino Studies Department this year.
