Posting Summary

We seek candidates whose research and teaching engage critical race studies in ways that deepen understanding of processes, practices, institutions, and semiotic forms that produce “race” as a social fact and a lived reality. Topics of inquiry might include (but are not limited to) comparative and intersectional perspectives on race, class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and ability; rights struggles; how institutions (re-)produce racial hierarchies and disparities; and structures of power and forms of governance that sustain racialized inclusions, exclusions, and inequalities. Geographic area is open.

The successful candidate will be an ethnographically grounded and theoretically engaged scholar trained in anthropology (or in an interdisciplinary program with a strong anthropology component), with a strong commitment to liberal arts education. The successful applicant’s research will enhance existing strengths in the interdisciplinary study of race and coloniality at Rutgers University and complement the expertise of faculty in the anthropology department’s Critical Interventions in Theory and Ethnography (CITE) program, whose work addresses the production of inequality and injustice in areas such as gender; the anthropology of the body; economic, political, and legal anthropology; and linguistic anthropology. The teaching load is two courses per semester and includes undergraduate as well as graduate classes. The initial appointment is for three years and is renewable for a second three-year period contingent on a successful reappointment review. Tenure review usually occurs during the sixth year. The Department of Anthropology is part of the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS).
