The Department of Literature at the University of California, San Diego invites applications for an Associate Professor of Transborder Literature and Culture, beginning fall 2023.
We seek a specialist on border literatures and cultures with the ability to teach in Spanish and English courses for Chicanx and Latinx Studies, Latin American Studies, and the Literature Department. In addition to literature, the candidate’s subareas of specialization might include but not be limited to film, performance studies, visual art, music, TV and digital culture. Intersectional approaches to border cultural production and ability to draw transnational connections with other borderlands in Latin America and elsewhere, as well as expertise in Indigenous studies, would be welcome additions to the candidate’s profile.
The successful candidate should expect to assume equitable administrative duties in the Literature Department and be prepared and willing to lead the Spanish Section and other initiatives related to our Latinx communities and student populations on campus.
We seek candidates whose research, teaching, and service will advance UC San Diego’s transition to HSI and/or anti-racism, anti-oppression, equity, and social justice with a focus on the Latinx/Chicanx community. We especially welcome candidates whose professional experience, community engagement, and personal background have facilitated their understanding of and ability to better serve students from traditionally underrepresented communities in higher education. Faculty are expected to have an inclusive approach to mentoring and advising that incorporates working with women and underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students.
Salary is based on the University of California salary scales.
Authorization to work in the US must be provided at the start of the appointment (Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1985).
