    Position description

    The University of California, Berkeley seeks applicants for four tenure track (Assistant Professor) positions and one tenured (Associate or Full Professor) position in the area of “Latinxs and Democracy.” Successful junior candidates will be invited to join one or more of the following units: College of Letters and Science (Departments of Sociology, Demography, and Political Science), School of Social Welfare, and School of Public Health. The senior, tenured position will be in the Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies Program in the Department of Ethnic Studies (College of Letters and Science).

    The Latinxs and Democracy Cluster initiative brings together units in the social sciences and professional schools to address the US-centered Latinx experience within three overarching themes: migration and citizenship, civic and political participation, and social inclusion and wellbeing. These themes speak to central concepts in the imagining and practicing of democracy because at their core they tell us about how the state distribution of political power, through policy and practice, affects a myriad of social issues, from racial inequality to health disparities. Junior candidates for the Sociology, Political Science, Demography, and Public Health positions will be expected to be able to research and teach about the US Latinx experience (i.e. Latinx Politics, Latinx Health, Latinx Communities). Applicants at the non-tenured level should select up to two unit(s) they wish to be considered by. Should applicants at the non-tenured level wish to be considered for a joint appointment with Demography, they should select that as an additional, joint- appointment choice. Senior candidates for the Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies Program search will be considered at the Associate and Full Professor levels.

    Public Health: Berkeley Public Health will recruit an assistant professor focused on examining the impact of public policies on the health of U.S. Latinx populations. Health policy researchers come from diverse social science backgrounds, including public policy, health policy, epidemiology, and health services research, as well as economics, sociology, demography, and political science.

    Political Science: The Department of Political Science will recruit an assistant professor with a research focus on the dynamics of Latinx politics in the United States, broadly understood. This could include a focus on political participation and behavior, representation and policy responsiveness, political institutions, and/or changes in political coalitions. Although the U.S. should be a core focus, comparative approaches/perspectives are welcome. In addition to an active research agenda in this field, qualified candidates will be expected to teach courses in Latinx politics.

    Social Welfare: The School of Social Welfare seeks an assistant professor committed to multi-level practice in areas such as Latinx civic and political engagement, public policy and institutions, immigration, and the social problems associated with, but not limited to, families and the feminization of poverty. An MSW is preferred and/or community-facing translational scholarly research attuned to professional practice.

    Sociology: The Department of Sociology will recruit an assistant professor with a research focus on Latinx immigration and/or Latinx communities in the United States. This could include attention to racialization processes, immigration patterns and Latinx demography, civic and political participation, and Latinx social mobility. While the US Latinx experience should be a main focus, candidates who employ a transnational/transborder lens are also welcome to apply.

    Demography: The Department of Demography seeks a dual-appointed assistant professor that will be shared with any of the departments/schools listed above.

    Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies: The Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies Program in the Department of Ethnic Studies seeks a tenured (Associate or Full) professor in the Social Sciences whose dynamic research agenda focuses on the US Latinx experience. This can include a focus on US Latino communities, immigration, political participation, demography, and racialization experiences in any historical or contemporary time period. The scholar should have an established record in Latinx Studies and the Social Sciences, and will be expected to lead the new Latinxs and Democracy Cluster along with affiliated senior faculty. Qualified candidates will have a history of excellent research, teaching, and mentorship and will be expected to teach relevant social science methods courses within the program.
