Job Description: The Social Science Division at the University of Chicago invites applications from scholars working on Race and Capitalism. The appointment would be based in the Anthropology, Political Science or Sociology department. A goal of this search is to increase the diversity of the faculty in the Division, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups historically underrepresented in the discipline, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or Alaskan Native. We are broadly searching for scholars who theoretically and empirically explore the interaction of race and capitalism.  The work could be focused on a historical period such as that of slavery or modern imperialism; a specific institution such as the workplace; on concepts such as labor, credit, or finance; on a specific theoretical question such as the meaning of justice in the context of communities affected by high levels of economic and racial inequality; or a particular empirical problem such as shifting participation rates by race and ethnicity in various sectors of the financialized U.S. economy. While we are very much open to various approaches to the study of race and capitalism, we are interested in scholarship on the intersection of these two phenomena, rather than work exploring one or the other.

 The successful candidate will be appointed as either an Associate Professor, or as a Full Professor. Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2019. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged. Applications must be submitted online, at the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website, https://tinyurl.com/yau7ukrf, and are required to include 1) a cover letter; 2) a curriculum vitae including the names and contact information for at least three references who may be contacted at a later date; 3) a research and teaching statement, including concrete descriptions of future plans for research and teaching philosophy; and 4) one or more recently published chapters, articles, or books. The University of Chicago is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity/Disabled/Veterans Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, age, status as an individual with a disability, protected veteran status, genetic information, or other protected classes under the law.

Position Title: Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow/Assistant Professor, Race and Capitalism

Institution: University of Chicago

Contact  NameKatie Kaftanich

Contact E-mail

Job Description: The Social Science Division at the University of Chicago invites applications from scholars working on Race and Capitalism. The appointment would be based in the Anthropology, Political Science or Sociology department. A goal of this search is to increase the diversity of the faculty in the Division, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from groups historically underrepresented in the discipline, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or Alaskan Native. We are broadly searching for scholars who theoretically and/or empirically explore the interaction of race and capitalism.  The work could be focused on a historical period such as that of slavery; a specific institution such as the workplace; on concepts such as labor, credit, finance; on a specific theoretical question such as the meaning of justice in the context of communities that are affected by high levels of economic and racial inequality; or a particular empirical problem such as shifting participation rates by race and ethnicity in various sectors of the deindustrialized U.S. While we are very much open to various approaches to the study of race and capitalism, we would not be willing to entertain scholars whose work overwhelmingly focuses on either race or capitalism largely to the exclusion of the other. The successful candidate will be appointed as either an Assistant Professor, or as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow with an initial one or two-year appointment at the faculty rank of instructor. The appointment as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow is intended to provide some relief from teaching in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period outside of the University. During the term as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow, the successful candidate will teach only one course per year. At the end of the initial term, Provost Postdoctoral Fellows will ordinarily be promoted to Assistant Professor. Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2019. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged. Candidates are expected to have the PH.D and no more than two years of postdoctoral experience by the start of the appointment. Applications must be submitted through the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website: https://tinyurl.com/yafg8apn. Applications must include: 1) a cover letter that, among other things, describes the applicant's prior and potential contributions to diversity in the context of academic research, teaching, and service; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a research statement addressing current research and future plans for research; 4) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy; 5) two samples of scholarly writing; and 6) three letters of reference.
