The Department of Sociology at the University of California, Davis, invites applicants for a tenure- track position for scholars who engage in theoretically-driven, empirical research on issues of importance to Latinx communities, particularly but not exclusively within the United States. We especially encourage applications from individuals whose research and teaching align with the department's existing areas of strength, including race, ethnicity, and immigration; gender and sexuality; work and organizations; politics, governance, and public policy; health and social welfare; crime, law, and deviance; and comparative-historical sociology. This recruitment is conducted at the rank of Assistant Professor (salary commensurate with experience).
We expect the scholar to be active in the discipline of sociology and to contribute to the campus efforts to diversify the university community, consonant with the citizenry of the state of California. We especially welcome applicants whose research, teaching, and community outreach demonstrably attest to their commitment to inclusion of under-represented and/or non-majority individuals into their respective area of specialization. These contributions should be described in a diversity statement to be included as part of the candidate's application.
We seek a scholar with a strong commitment to research and teaching. Teaching duties include four (quarter-system) courses per academic year at the introductory, advanced undergraduate, and graduate levels. Supervision of graduate students, student advising, curricular development, and performance of University service are also expected.
The successful candidate must have a completed Ph.D. by the first day of courses (September 28, 2020). The following materials are required: cover letter addressing research and teaching; curriculum vitae; diversity statement; three writing samples; and contact information for three references.
The University of California, Davis, is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity among its faculty and staff.
