Job Details

The Department of Sociology & Anthropology (SOA) and Latin American and Latino/a Studies (LALS) at Illinois State University invite applications for one tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor rank beginning August 16, 2023. We are seeking a TT hire for a Cultural or Linguistic Anthropologist specializing in Latin American or Latino/a Studies. The successful candidate should demonstrate the potential to produce high-quality scholarly research that can be published in peer-reviewed journals, the ability to teach courses in anthropology and Latin American studies as well as demonstrate their ability to mentor and work with diverse student populations and support the University’s commitment to our core values that support our efforts to create a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and socially just institution.   

SOA and LALS are committed to increasing the diversity of the campus community. ISU recognizes that a diverse faculty, staff, and student body enriches the educational experiences of the entire campus and greater community. Our student population has become more diverse, and the areas of Anthropology and Latin American and Latino/a Studies are of particular interest to our majors and graduate students. We are seeking applicants who can demonstrate their ability to work collegially with faculty from diverse cultural backgrounds, and the ability to work with, and be sensitive to, the educational needs of students from diverse populations. 

This position is part of a cluster-hiring initiative sponsored by the Office of the Provost designed to increase multidisciplinary collaboration and foster increased connections across units. This position in particular is part of what we anticipate will be growth in the area of social justice and race/ethnicity. The faculty member who joins us will find fruitful collaborations of SOA and Latin American and Latino/a studies. Our program has cultivated a strong presence in Latin American and Latino/a Studies by offering classes about Latin America, a regional specialty/ strength in our department.
