UC Davis Department of Native American Studies
Hemispheric Indigenous People’s Socio-Cultural Politics
The Department of Native American Studies at the University of California, Davis (UCD) invites applications for an open-rank position in the area of hemispheric indigenous people’s socio-cultural politics to begin July 1, 2012. This position would be filled by an interdisciplinary scholar whose field(s) fall(s) within humanities and/or social sciences, with a specialization in Mexico, Central America, as well as possibly borderlands research and/or emphasis in some other area of Latin America. We are searching for a scholar whose work employs a hemispheric perspective and the political and cultural relevance of the social phenomena taking place in the Americas. Candidates must have a doctorate in hand by the first day of classes.
We seek individuals with a commitment to the enhancement of our Native American Studies undergraduate and graduate programs. Our department is inter/multidisciplinary and hemispheric in perspective. We offer an undergraduate major and minor and graduate program (MA, Ph.D., and Designated Emphasis) in Native American Studies.
Candidates should include a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, one representative writing sample or publication, student evaluations from two classes, and the names and addresses of three referees. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2011, and continue until the position is filled.
The University of California, Davis, and the Department of Native American Studies are interested in candidates committed to the highest standards of scholarship and professional activities, and to the development of a campus climate that supports equality and diversity. The University of California is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity among its faculty and staff. In this spirit, UC Davis strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, covered veterans, and all that meet the qualifications for this position.
