The Department of Political Science at Stanford invites applications for an open rank, tenure line, position for scholars who study race in American society. This search is part of a university-wide initiative in which Stanford seeks to hire as many as 10 strong researchers and scholars who study the significance of race in American society, including the nature and persistence of racial inequality and its consequences. Stanford seeks to support, deepen, and enhance the important research and teaching in these areas long underway on our campus. Appointments may be made in the following schools and departments: Stanford Law School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford Graduate School of Education, and the following departments within the School of Humanities and Sciences: Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, History, and Religious Studies. Rank is open, although a majority of the appointments are expected to be made at the assistant professor level. At the senior level, we are particularly interested in candidates with an active program of research in progress and for established scholars to have outstanding records of achievement in developing or using innovative approaches in the broad areas of their discipline. A strong commitment to excellent teaching is essential.
