Assistant Professor/Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow, Race and Capitalism

Company: University of Chicago
Location: Chicago
Posted on: September 15, 2018

Job Description:

Assistant Professor/Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow, Race and Capitalism 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/or empirically explore the interaction of race and capitalism. The work could be focused on a historical period such as that of slavery; a specific institution such as the workplace; on concepts such as labor, credit, finance; on a specific theoretical question such as the meaning of justice in the context of communities that are 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 deindustrialized U.S.--While we are very much open to various approaches to the study of race and capitalism, we would not be willing to entertain scholars whose work overwhelmingly focuses on either race or capitalism largely to the exclusion of the other. The successful candidate will be appointed as either an Assistant Professor, or as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow with an initial one or two-year appointment at the faculty rank of instructor. The appointment as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow is intended to provide some relief from teaching in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period outside of the University. During the term as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow, the successful candidate will teach only one course per year. At the end of the initial term, Provost Postdoctoral Fellows will ordinarily be promoted to Assistant 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. Candidates are expected to have the PH.D and no more than two years of postdoctoral experience by the start of the appointment. Applications must be submitted through the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website: https://tinyurl.com/yafg8apn. Applications must include: 1) a cover letter that, among other things, describes the applicant's prior and potential contributions to diversity in the context of academic research, teaching, and service; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a research statement addressing current research and future plans for research; 4) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy; 5) two samples of scholarly writing; and 6) three letters of reference.
