The University of Notre Dame's Keough School of Global Affairs invites applications for a tenured/tenure track position in racial justice and conflict transformation, based at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies (https://kroc.nd.edu/). Rank is open. Preference will be given to scholars-practitioners working on US racial domestic challenges with global connections and implications. The disciplinary specialization for the position is open and we are particularly interested in candidates whose research and practice transcends disciplinary boundaries. Candidates from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
While the primary appointment is at the Keough School, the successful candidate could also have an affiliation with another School or College at the University of Notre Dame.
The successful candidate will be expected to launch and direct a new initiative on racial justice, conflict transformation and policy at the Kroc Institute, including offering courses in their areas of expertise, developing collaborative partnerships with other Notre Dame units working on race and justice (such as https://raceandresilience.nd.edu/ and https://klau.nd.edu/) and conducting policy-relevant research on racial justice. This position is in line with Notre Dame's broader effort to increase https://president.nd.edu/presidents-initiatives/presidents-oversight-committee-on-diversity-and-inclusion/#process on campus.
Financial resources will be available to launch the initiative in the first two years but the successful candidate will be expected and responsible for securing funds to continue the development of the initiative.
