This is an open-field search, and we invite scholars whose research overlaps with one or more departments or disciplines to apply.

We are committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and we particularly encourage applications from individuals who identify as members of historically underrepresented groups. The appointee will direct an independent research program, and teach and advise undergraduate and graduate students. This appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Basic Qualifications: Doctorate or terminal degree in an applicable field required by the time the appointment begins

Additional Qualifications: Candidates should have a strong record of or commitment to 1) teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, 2) to broadening institutional diversity, and 3) scholarly excellence.
