The Department of Anthropology and the US Latino/a Studies Program at Iowa 
State University invite applications for a nine-month, full-time

with ethnographic research and teaching expertise concerning the experiences 
of Latino/as in the United States (broadly defined).  We are particularly

Health and food security, labor, migration, transnational media and 
communication, or human rights and citizenship.

The USLS program is one of four ethnic studies programs in the LAS College's 
Center for American Intercultural Studies (with American Indian Studies, 
African and African American Studies, and Asian American Studies).

2009. Preferred qualifications include experience with writing or obtaining
