One-Year Visiting Assistant Professor in African America Studies
Colby College
Waterville, ME

The African-American Studies Program at Colby College invites applications for a one-year (possibly renewable) visiting Assistant Professorship, beginning July 1, 2021. While a Ph.D. is preferred, an advanced ABD will be considered.

We seek a scholar whose research specialties and teaching experience focus on African-American social life and culture in the United States. Teaching experience, highly relevant innovative research, and significant organizational, cultural, or civic engagement with African-American communities in the United States are necessary. The successful candidate will be expected to teach a course on African-American culture in the United States, and three additional courses. Applicants are encouraged to suggest courses and topics not currently in the African-American Studies program curriculum (https://www.colby.edu/catalogue/courses/aa/). While disciplinary training and affiliations are open, preference will be given to candidates whose courses can contribute to and be cross-listed with the departments of sociology or anthropology.

Applicants should send a cover letter describing research interests, a curriculum vitae, and a teaching philosophy statement. The teaching philosophy statement should include evidence of a commitment to diversity, experience with inclusive teaching, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Electronic submission of application materials through Interfolio is required [apply.interfolio.com/86735]. Review of materials will begin immediately and continue until the search is completed.

Questions about this search should be directed to Chandra D. Bhimull, Associate Professor of African-American Studies and Anthropology, Chair of African-American Studies: [cbhimull@colby.edu]
