Assistant Professor or Provost Fellow The Division of the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago
invites applications for faculty positions in the Departments
of Anthropology, Political Science, and Sociology. Successful
candidates will be appointed as either an Assistant Professor, or
as a Provost Fellow with an initial two-year appointment at the
faculty rank of Instructor. This initial period is intended to
serve in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period,
during which Provost Fellows will teach one class per year. At the
end of the initial term, Provost Fellows will ordinarily be
promoted to Assistant Professor. A goal of the search is to
increase the diversity of the faculty in the Division of Social
Sciences, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups
that are historically underrepresented in the disciplines noted
above, such as black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American
Indian or Alaskan Native.
The Department of Anthropology seeks applications from scholars
who focus on Native American/indigenous studies. Areas of
specialization might include, but are not limited to, environmental
and resource management studies, finance, gender and sexuality
studies, globalization and indigenous-settler colonial relations,
law and politics, and museum and visual studies.
The Department of Sociology seeks applications from all
sociological areas of specialization; the Department has a
particular interest in the areas of race and ethnicity, health
disparities, and migration.
The Political Science Department seeks applications from
scholars engaging issues of colonialism, empire, and their
contemporary legacies around the world, especially from scholars of
Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Comparative
Racial Politics. Themes of particular interest include: the
legacies of slavery; the politics of indentured servitude; the
practices of colonial and/or imperial rule; forces migration;
genocidal violence; interstate relations involving former colonies;
and economic (inter)dependence in the global south.
Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2018. Candidates are
expected to have the PhD in hand, and no more than two years of
postdoctoral experience by the time the appointment begins. For
