Associate Professor of Sociology/Anthropology, Dept. of African-American and African Diaspora Studies, Columbia University

The newly established Department of African-American and African Diaspora Studies (AAADS) at Columbia University invites applications for a tenure track or tenured position at the level of Associate Professor to begin on July 1, 2020. AAADS welcomes applicants in anthropology or sociology whose work in the United States and/or elsewhere in the African Diaspora cuts across fields and disciplines in areas including—but not limited to—Black migration, transnational communities, and internationalism; Black feminism and/or LGBT studies; and, urban social movements, political economy, and racial formation. The successful applicant must demonstrate a robust research agenda in Black urban studies and be willing to teach and mentor students at the
undergraduate, Master’s, and Ph.D. levels. This is also an opportunity to participate in the development and implementation of AAADS’s Ph.D. program.

Applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and a publication sample. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on December 10, 2019, and will continue to consider applications until the position is filled.
