Assistant Professor, Department of Latin American and Latino Studies, DePaul University

by Jennifer Boles | Oct 05, 2016
Deadline: Nov. 1

The Department of Latin American and Latino Studies at DePaul University seeks applications to fill a tenure-track faculty position beginning September 2017. The Department of Latin American and Latino Studies offers an undergraduate major and minor, and a five-year BA/MA in Critical Ethnic Studies.

Applicants should be prepared to teach courses in their area of specialization, core and elective Latin American and Latino Studies courses, as well as core liberal arts courses, including a first year seminar and/or an interdisciplinary sophomore seminar on multiculturalism in the U.S. Since DePaul is on the quarter system, the position entails teaching two courses per quarter (six courses) each academic year.

We are interested in applicants whose teaching and scholarship is grounded in both Latin American and Latino Studies. We particularly welcome candidates in areas including, but not limited to, Chicano/a Studies; transnational and border studies; immigration; and comparative approaches to different Latino groups. A Ph.D. is required and some college teaching experience is preferred. The successful candidate will show evidence of an active research agenda and a commitment to excellence in teaching. The rank will be at the Assistant Professor level.

DePaul University is committed to recruiting a diverse faculty to complement the diversity of its student body and of Chicago area communities. Therefore, we especially encourage applications from candidates reflecting such diversity.

Applicants should electronically submit a curriculum vita, letter of interest, an article-length example of research, contact information for three references, and evidence of successful teaching. Screening of applications will begin November 1, 2016; applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
