The Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies and the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at The University of Texas at Austin invite applications for a tenure-track assistant professor or a tenured associate professor to begin Fall of academic year 2022-23. We seek a social scientist with a specialization in the intersections of Indigeneity, Gender, and Migration studies.

Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. in hand by August 18, 2022. The ideal candidate will already have a successful publishing and research program and a strong teaching record. In addition to actively researching and publishing, the candidate will be expected to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses, direct honors theses and eventually dissertations, and provide service to the department and the center, and if tenured, to the college and university. Candidates may come from any social science background, but those holding a Ph.D. in Chicana/o or Latina/o Studies, Indigenous Studies, Black Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Ethnic Studies, Public Health, Sociology, Political Science, Communication, Psychology, Geography, and Anthropology are especially encouraged to apply.

The committee will begin reviewing applications November 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
