Assistant Professor of African and Afro-American Studies and Politics, Brandeis University 

Description: 

The Department of Politics and the Department of African and Afro-American Studies (AAAS) at Brandeis University invite applications for a full-time, joint, tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in African-American Politics. The successful candidate's term will begin in the Fall of 2018.

We seek applicants whose research and teaching interests focus on African-American politics with an ability to engage in the experiences of other peoples of African descent and other communities of color. We encourage applicants with teaching and research interests in, for example, one or more of the following areas: campaigns and elections, political behavior, state and local politics, judicial and criminal justice politics and policies, including incarceration related issues, immigration, and public/social policy.

We prefer candidates with  a  Ph.D. in Political Science or  a  Ph.D. in African-American Studies with extensive and broad training in political science. Candidates must show evidence of teaching excellence to qualify for consideration. The course load is 2/2: one course in AAAS and one course in the Politics Department every semester. Candidates will have the opportunity to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Service expectations will be shared equally between both departments. Qualified applicants should submit  a  cover letter, curriculum vitae,  a  statement of research and teaching interests that includes potential course offerings,  a  chapter or article length writing sample, and three letters of reference electronically at:  https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9495  First consideration will be given to applications received by  October 16, 2017 . Questions about the position can be directed to: Carina Ray (Interim Chair, AAAS;  cer15@brandeis.edu ) or Daniel Kryder (Politics;  kryder@brandeis.edu ), Co-Chairs, Search Committee on African- American Politics.

Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building  a  culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities. Diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to Brandeis' primary mission of providing  a  quality education. The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their creative endeavors, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis' reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students for  a  pluralistic society.
