Job posting from University of California, Santa Cruz. Deadline is 5 November 2019.
History of Southeast Asia – Assistant Professor
The History Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a position in the history of Southeast Asia, with an emphasis on environmental history, at the Assistant Professor (tenure-track) level. All Southeast Asia geographical and topical subfields welcome. In addition to environmental history, the department is particularly interested in expanding offerings in imperialism and postcolonialism, gender, labor, ethnicity, coastal connections, trade and political economy, and migration and diaspora. The successful candidate will also work with the newly founded Center for Southeast Asian Coastal Interactions.
The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses focused on Southeast Asia. The position carries a five-course-equivalency workload, which normally means teaching four courses over three quarters and carrying out other academic and professional service responsibilities. Applicants will be expected to conduct research, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and contribute to department, university, and professional service.
UC Santa Cruz is a Hispanic-Serving Institution with a high proportion of first-in-family undergraduate students. We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing women and minorities who are underrepresented in higher education careers (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background), and who are concerned about equity and diversity with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.
