The Department of American Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park located in College Park, MD, invites applications for a faculty appointment in Ethnic Studies at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. Our strong preference is for candidates with expertise in Native American/Indigenous Studies. In addition, we are very interested in those who work in the field of indigenous Latinx Studies and/or other fields in Ethnic Studies. The successful candidate for this position will specialize in using interdisciplinary, intersectional, critical, and/or comparative approaches. Candidates should expect to develop new courses in their area of expertise to enrich and expand the department’s offerings in race and ethnic studies, and be able to explore connections between their own research and other existing areas of scholarship in the department, such as U.S. Latino/a Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and other programs at the University, such  as the African American Digital Humanities Initiative (AADHUM), and the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH). Additional requirements include an earned doctorate at the time of appointment, ability to teach and advise students, and to produce innovative curriculum, and clear promise of a strong research record.
