The associate will teach in the Asian American Studies curriculum and be active in programming outreach. The selected candidate is expected to engage in original research, to teach one course per semester (Introduction to Asian American and Diaspora Studies and another course in the associate’s area of expertise), and to participate in the intellectual and public life of the university. The associate will be mentored by senior faculty and have access to professional development and other resources on campus. Applicants in all fields and disciplines in the humanities and social sciences will be considered. We especially welcome candidates whose area of expertise complements those of current Asian American and Diaspora Studies Program faculty.

Letters of recommendation will be requested later in December for candidates on the long list. These materials should be submitted through Academic Jobs Online.
