The Department of Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) at Texas Christian University invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions: one in African American Studies and one in U.S. Latina/o Studies. One of the two appointments can be made at the Associate level; the other will be an Assistant Professor. Both will begin in fall 2019.
Successful candidates will demonstrate evidence of an ambitious research agenda centered on race/ethnicity. Candidates who wish to be considered at the Associate level must be tenured in their current institutions and exhibit an existing record of scholarship, teaching, and service commensurate with the requirements for tenure and promotion in the Department of CRES.
We especially seek scholars who apply comparative or relational approaches to the study of race/ethnicity and/or scholars who meaningfully integrate the intersectional study of women, gender, and sexuality.
Faculty in these positions will be expected to incorporate community-engaged pedagogy into their teaching and to take part in the wider Fort Worth and Texas communities as civic-minded scholars. Additionally, the faculty will serve as campus leaders in the development of CRES and larger university initiatives surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion.
