Associate Professor/Full Professor, Race and Capitalism
University of Chicago
August 31, 2018
The Social Science Division at the University of Chicago invites applications from scholars working on Race and Capitalism. The appointment would be based in the Anthropology, Political Science or Sociology department. A goal of this search is to increase the diversity of the faculty in the Division, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups historically underrepresented in the discipline, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or Alaskan Native.
We are broadly searching for scholars who theoretically and empirically explore the interaction of race and capitalism. The work could be focused on a historical period such as that of slavery or modern imperialism; a specific institution such as the workplace; on concepts such as labor, credit, or finance; on a specific theoretical question such as the meaning of justice in the context of communities affected by high levels of economic and racial inequality; or a particular empirical problem such as shifting participation rates by race and ethnicity in various sectors of the financialized U.S. economy. While we are very much open to various approaches to the study of race and capitalism, we are interested in scholarship on the intersection of these two phenomena, rather than work exploring one or the other.
The successful candidate will be appointed as either an Associate Professor, or as a Full Professor. Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2019. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged. Applications must be submitted online, at the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website, https://tinyurl.com/yau7ukrf, and are required to include 1) a cover letter; 2) a curriculum vitae including the names and contact information for at least three references who may be contacted at a later date; 3) a research and teaching statement, including concrete descriptions of future plans for research and teaching philosophy; and 4) one or more recently published chapters, articles, or books.
