Assistant Professor - Sociology (Latinx Cluster Hiring Initiative)

The Department of Sociology and the Latinx Cluster Hire Initiative at UC San Diego invite applications for an Assistant Professor to be appointed as part of UCSD’s Latinx Cluster Hire, to begin July 1, 2023. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and welcome applicants who study societies in any region of the world. While the search is open field, we have a preference for candidates who study international migration, social inequalities, gender, and/or environmental sociology.

 The individual hired into this position will be expected to teach courses and mentor at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. We invite applicants of a wide variety of theoretical and methodological approaches with an innovative research program and commitment to outstanding teaching. Applicants must have strong research accomplishments and have experience or a willingness to participate in teaching, mentoring, research or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

 This position is one of 14 new ladder-rank faculty positions in the Latinx Cluster Hire Initiative (LCHI) at UC San Diego. The LCHI aims to increase faculty diversity, innovative research, and culturally relevant curriculum and mentorship through increased engagement and collaboration between various departments across campus with the Chicanx and Latinx Studies (CLS) and Latin American Studies (LAS) programs.

 Faculty hired under LCHI will have multiple opportunities to contribute to UC San Diego’s transformation from an emergent Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) to a full-status HSI that meets the curricular and cultural needs of Latinx, URM, and first-generation students. This includes faculty engagement with scholars across disciplines to address issues of race and racism, access and equity, and social and political debates pertinent to Chicanx, Latinx, and Latin American Studies, while also working within their home departments and professional communities. As part of their teaching portfolio, faculty hired under LCHI will be expected to design and teach undergraduate courses that align with the CLS and/or LAS academic programs, mentor undergraduate students, and serve as faculty affiliates in one or both programs.

 We seek candidates whose research, teaching, and service will advance UC San Diego’s transition to HSI and/or anti-racism, anti-oppression, equity, and social justice with a focus on the Latinx/Chicanx community. We especially welcome candidates whose professional experience, community engagement, and personal background have facilitated their understanding of and ability to better serve students from traditionally underrepresented communities in higher education. Faculty are expected to have an inclusive approach to mentoring and advising that incorporates working with women and underrepresented students.
