Job Description: https://csucareers.calstate.edu/Detail.aspx?pid=63122 San Francisco State University, School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement invites applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in national security, racialization and state power beginning August 2018. The School seeks individuals with a background in Criminal Justice Studies with a specialization in racialization, state power, and repression, with an emphasis on discourses and practices of national security and either: A) surveillance; and/or B) the criminalization of immigration. We are particularly interested in scholars who focus on the contested dynamics of national belonging in an era of neoliberal globalization, particularly the construction of national identity and constitutive others through a discourse of safety, and the subsequent development of state capacities to surveil, arrest, detain, deport, and/or execute said others. Scholars may also consider the transnational implications of judicial and legislative decisions about civil liberties in the context of heightened concerns over national security. In particular, we welcome scholars that study social movement mounted by racialized communities, and/or broader elements in civil society. Currently, tenure track faculty in criminal justice studies have expertise in youth crime, policing, mass incarceration, the racialized and gendered dynamics of criminalization and poverty and the politics of the criminal justice system from an interdisciplinary crime, law and justice perspective. The successful candidate would build on this body of expertise by developing new curricular offerings in one of two areas: 1) war, militarism and surveillance internationally and domestically; and/or 2) immigration, immigration policy, immigration enforcement and social movements by immigrants. This would expand our department’s offerings by adding a transnational focus to our faculty’s current emphasis on the social, political and legal construction of crime. Students would benefit from increased understanding of the dynamics of displacement, immigration, racialization, and punitive responses in the U.S. and internationally. Courses in these areas could help prepare students for future careers in government and law, growing fields that require critical understanding of the issues of national belonging and civil and human rights. The School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement (PACE) is a collaborative interdisciplinary school of public affairs oriented scholars that delivers degree programs in Criminal Justice Studies, Environmental Studies, Public Administration, and Urban Studies and Planning.

Building on an ethos of social justice and sustainability, faculty prepare PACE graduates with critical and analytical skills necessary to understand and address the issues and challenges of the twenty-first century. Qualifications: Candidates should have a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree in Law and Society, Sociology, Ethnic Studies, Women’s Studies, or related field. Candidates should have a strong background in racialization, state power, and repression, with an emphasis on discourses and practices of national security and either: A) surveillance; and/or B) the criminalization of immigration. Candidates must demonstrate the ability to teach courses in the areas of Criminal Justice Studies and Public Administration. Preferred candidates should have experience teaching, or mentoring minorities, or other underrepresented groups. Candidates must have an active record of scholarship related to their specialty area. Candidates must be able to demonstrate how they have or will incorporate inclusion, diversity, and educational equity in their courses and/or scholarship/creative works. Responsibilities: The position requires undergraduate teaching in Criminal Justice Studies with the possibility of undergraduate and graduate course in other PACE programs, mentoring and advising undergraduate students, developing an active ongoing scholarship program in one’s area of specialty, and ongoing committee and service assignments.
