Interdisciplinary Faculty Positions for Study of Diversity
The University of Delaware seeks to hire a minimum of two professors

Applicants who have a Ph.D. (or J.D. for legal scholars) in the arts and humanities, social or behavioral sciences, or business and economics, law and public policy will be appointed in the department of their discipline. Applications from scholars with interdisciplinary interests and who examine social dynamics at the intersection of diverse groups are especially welcome.
