Assistant/Associate/Full Professor-Anti-Black Racism and Social Inclusion Cluster-African American Studies and School of Social Welfare

The University of California, Berkeley seeks applicants for two positions, one tenure-track (Assistant Professor) to join the Department of African American Studies and one tenured (Associate or Full Professor) to join the School of Social Welfare. Both hires are part of a multi-year hiring initiative in “Anti-Black Racism and Social Inclusion.” Successful candidates will join a dynamic cluster of scholars at UC-Berkeley who are addressing anti-blackness across a range of institutions and from diverse disciplinary approaches.

UC Berkeley is committed to building a community of scholars whose work contributes to contemporary efforts to strengthen democratic structures that are currently in crisis (e.g., through the suppression of voting rights; hyper-criminalization; persistent wealth inequality; highly segregated schools, and approaches to crime control). The Anti-Black Racism and Social Inclusion hiring initiative centers anti-blackness as a central organizing feature of social and political institutions in the US and globally, and as an expansive conceptual framework that draws attention to the systems and structures that delimit Black lives and enables us to interrogate how anti-blackness functions across and within racial/ethnic groups. We seek scholars who are leading or emerging voices in conversations on anti-blackness as it relates to outcomes in various social domains and who possess a demonstrated commitment to advancing anti-racism both inside and outside the academy, whether in the United States or internationally.

This initiative is especially interested in applicants whose research can contribute to theoretical, conceptual, and empirical understandings of how social institutions can provide for the safety and well-being of a diverse group of people in a democratic society as it reckons with its roots in racism, anti-blackness and white supremacy. We invite applicants with interdisciplinary expertise in critical epistemologies, like critical race theory, and the Black intellectual and Black feminist traditions. We also invite applicants whose scholarly experience includes a demonstrated commitment to this research arc and to teaching/mentoring, service, practice and public intellectualism/partnerships along these lines.

African American Studies: The Department of African American Studies seeks a tenure-track Assistant Professor whose work demonstrates prior or potential contributions to one or more of the following conversations (from a humanist and/or social science perspective) on anti-blackness in the US and the African Diaspora: abolition studies, digital media, critical race approaches to data science and mapping, museum studies, anti-racism and anti-blackness, racial capitalism, trans/queer/feminist theory, and critical disability studies.

Social Welfare: The School of Social Welfare seeks a senior (Associate or Full) Professor committed to multi-level research and scholarship that is attuned to professional practice in areas that center Anti-Black Racism, Social Inclusion, and other critical epistemologies and also prioritizes a focus on social justice and structural change within and across social services, institutions, communities, families, and individuals.

The School of Social Welfare, the Division of Social Sciences, and the Department of African American Studies recognizes the intrinsic relationship between diversity and excellence in all our endeavors. We embrace open and equitable access to opportunities for learning and development as our obligation and goal. We seek candidates who demonstrate a commitment to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging through their research, teaching, and/or service. UC Berkeley is committed to upholding the university’s principles of community so that every individual can be successful in a healthy, welcoming, and safe environment. Additional information about programs and resources supporting the advancement of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is available at:

Economics Departmental Executive Officer  (Chair) Search 

University of Iowa, Tippie College of Business  

We’re looking for the next leader for a renowned economics  department 

The Economics Department has been a premier department in the University of Iowa since Frank Knight  was a faculty member in the 1920’s. In 2017, US News ranked the Economics Department 42nd overall  and 21st among public institutions. We are looking for a Departmental Executive Officer (DEO) to build  on the department’s tradition of excellence.  

This position offers an exciting opportunity to make major contributions to the study of economics and  to provide strategic leadership aimed at growing and repositioning the department. The college  envisions a small, but world-class business economics department.  

What we’re about 

The Department of Economics at the University of Iowa is administratively housed in the vibrant Tippie  College of Business and offers degrees in both the College of Business and the College of Liberal Arts &  Sciences. The department plays a leading role in the robust teaching and research environment. For  example, the Iowa Electronic Market (IEM), a real-money futures market pioneered by three economics  faculty members, spawned modern prediction markets research.  

The permanent faculty of the Economics Department includes 8 tenured/tenure track faculty and 6 instructional track faculty. There are approximately 230 undergraduate economics majors (~50 BBA  majors in the Tippie College of Business and ~180 BA and BS majors in the College of Liberal Arts). The  department is restarting its nationally ranked PhD program. The department also teaches critical classes  in MBA, specialty masters and PhD programs across the college. 

The University of Iowa’s status as a premier research university depends on the robust exchange of  ideas. We achieve excellence through diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our ability to foster an equitable  and inclusive environment for all who join the UI family will determine our collective success. To learn  more, visit https://diversity.uiowa.edu/. 

The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, a Midwestern college town with modest housing costs, an  excellent public school system, excellent healthcare with a world-class teaching hospital, and superior  venues for the performing arts. The Iowa City-Cedar Rapids corridor has a combined population of  450,000 residents and an airport with direct major airline flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas-Ft.  Worth, Denver, Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Phoenix. 

How you’ll make a difference 

Tippie is a collaborative, innovative and nimble college with infinite potential; a place where you can  have an immediate impact. The college and department are poised to embrace the future of higher  education and research. Bring your ideas to build and integrate the department’s role in the college and  university.  

The Department Executive Officer (DEO) reports directly to the Senior Associate Dean of the College.  The DEO is a tenured full professor charged with providing strategic and operational leadership that promotes excellence in the faculty missions of research, education and service. This charge includes working with faculty to develop the department’s vision and execute the department’s strategic plan.  The DEO also provides leadership in the areas of faculty recruitment, development and retention,  mentoring of junior faculty, overall quality improvement and budget management. 

The DEO works collaboratively with the Dean, Senior Associate Dean, other DEOs, faculty, program  directors, and staff to advance education, scholarship, and service in a culture that promotes  participation, collegiality, professionalism, and excellence. The DEO assures delivery of effective  curriculum, promotes research, and oversees service in a manner that meets program goals and  supports the vision, mission and strategic plan of the department, college and university. The DEO also  serves as an important communication link between the department and other units of the college and  university. 

Our next Economics DEO will build a small but high-achieving business economics department that  serves students in two colleges and address the need for economic education and research in the state.  Candidates should have the ability to engage the current faculty in a vision for the department’s future  while attracting a small number of new faculty to enable the department to achieve that vision. We  believe the right size for the department is about a dozen tenured/tenure track faculty and 4-6  instructional track faculty.  

Requirements 

A Ph.D. in Economics or a related field is required. We are looking for a leader that understands the  mission of the Economics Department and works with faculty and staff to promote that mission. The  successful candidate will:

• Recruit, develop, and retain outstanding faculty; support and promote excellence in faculty  research and educational endeavors, encourage and guide mentorship of junior faculty; • Work collaboratively and effectively with multiple stakeholders to develop the department’s  vision, execute the department’s strategic plan and integrate the department’s vision, plan and  goals with those of the college and the university.
