Job Announcement for Two Faculty Positions in Asian American Studies at UIC

The University of Illinois at Chicago invites applications for two 
positions in Asian American Studies, one senior or advanced assistant, 
and one beginning assistant, tenure track. For both positions, we seek 
scholars in the social sciences and/or historical studies, although the 
ideal candidate’s work would connect to at least one of the core 
emphases of our program, namely, transnational/diasporic studies, 
intersectional race/gender studies, and community engagement. Both 
appointments can be either 100% in Asian American Studies, or split with 
another unit.

(1) Senior or Advanced Assistant Professor: We seek a nationally 
recognized senior/advanced assistant professor with a strong publication 
record and experience in program and curriculum development. To apply, 
please send a letter of application, curriculum vita, sample 
publication, and the names of three references to the address below.

(2) Assistant Professor: A beginning tenure-track appointment. 
Candidates must have received the Ph.D. before the date of appointment. 
To apply, please send a letter of application, curriculum vita, and a 
brief writing sample, and arrange to have three confidential letters of 
reference sent to the address below.

Located in the heart of Chicago, UIC serves a racially, ethnically, and 
culturally diverse student population with over 16,000 undergraduates

community of scholars working in a number of interdisciplinary units, 
including the Department of African-American Studies, the Latin American 
and Latino Studies Program, the Program in Gender and Women's Studies, 
and the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy. UIC is 
currently building on this rich tradition of interdisciplinarity by 
creating a new PhD program in comparative race and gender studies and by 
offering a growing number of Asian American Studies courses for both 
undergraduate and graduate students. More information on Asian American 
Studies at UIC is available on our website at www.uic.edu/las/asam.

Review of applications will begin Nov. 15, 2009. The appointment will 
begin in Fall 2010. Teaching load is 2/2. Salary is commensurate with 
experience and qualifications. Please send the materials requested to:
