POSITION DESCRIPTION

As part of the Mellichamp Chairs in Racial Environmental Justice cluster hire, The Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies invites creative scholars whose insights on racial justice focus on the natural and built environments and center academic queries about the health of our environment with those of race, class and/or immigration. Our department seeks scholars steeped in research, for instance, that ties politicized struggles over water and land with our Mexican and Mexican-Indigenous farmworker communities; offers a racial material analysis of tourism’s impact on local ecological communities; the impact of gentrification on Black and Brown communities and labor patterns; investigations on how immigrant communities transform local environments; and/or how climate justice impacts larger struggles over immigrant detention. The faculty member should have an exemplary record of scholarship, teaching, service, and professional activities that demonstrate how racial capitalism shapes the conditions of environmental inequality. The successful candidate would find collaborative synergies on our campus with fellow Ethnic and Feminist Studies departments and active Environmental Justice research groups across the disciplines. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in Ethnic Studies, Chicana/o/x Studies, Latina/o/x Studies or any related discipline that centrally examines social inequalities based on environmental factors related to racial injustices, anti-blackness, and/or anti-indigeneities. The candidate should also be prepared to teach and mentor at the undergraduate and graduate level in these areas. We especially value candidates that actively integrate DEI issues into their research, teaching and service. For more information about our department, visit: www.chicst.ucsb.edu
