POSITION DESCRIPTION

The Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured Assistant/Associate Professor position in Black Studies. Geographic area and thematic research foci are open. We especially welcome applications from scholars whose research provides critical perspectives on racism, white supremacy, and racial capitalism by deploying intersectional Black theories and methodologies, such as, but not limited to, Black ecologies, Black queer and feminist theory, Black radicalism, embodiment, Black geographies, abolition, decolonization, Black liberation, African diaspora, and global Blackness.

The position is made possible by the UCI Black Thriving Initiative (BTI) Faculty Cluster Hiring Program, an effort to recruit cohorts of faculty across the campus who interrogate anti-blackness as an existential threat to the health and welfare of communities worldwide. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in BTI-sponsored collaborative multidisciplinary programs with their cohort of fellow hires as part of the Environmental Health Disparities cluster. This cluster will advance public and community engagement regarding environmental racism and health stressors that have historically and actively worked against Black well-being (see: https://sites.uci.edu/cehdr/jobs/).

We seek applicants whose research and teaching focus on areas that include, but are not limited to:

  • Health ecologies (for instance: medical racism, reproductive justice, health disparities, genomics, environmental stress, or health systems)
  • Ecologies and environments (for instance: environmental justice, climate impacts, toxicities, degradation, built environments, urbanisms, outer space, andmultispecies studies)
  • Indigenous studies (for instance: lifeworlds, land, heritage studies, dispossession, governance, and settler colonialism)
  • Geographies and economies (for instance: food geographies, plantation economies, racialized space, diasporic politics, migration, labor, material culture).

This position will be housed 100% in the Department of Anthropology, which has a reputation for experimental, collaborative, and interdisciplinary methods, theoretical innovation, and social justice commitments.

A Ph.D. in anthropology or a cognate field is required at the time of appointment.

The position start date is July 1, 2022. In addition to a strong research agenda, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to teaching and mentoring a diverse body of graduate and undergraduate students. Please complete an online application profile and upload the following materials electronically to be considered for this position:

  1. Cover Letter
  2. Curriculum Vitae
  3. Writing sample (approximately 25 double-spaced pages or article length)
  4. Statement of Current and Future Research Plans
  5. Statement of Teaching
  6. Statement of Inclusive Excellence Activities (addressing planned contributions to UCI’s inclusive excellence mission)
  7. Three letters of recommendation from academic references
  8. Authorization to Release form

With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full).
