Assistant Professor, Asian American Studies Program, California State University, Fresno

Due January 6

Join our team! The Department of Anthropology and the Asian American Studies Program seek to fill a tenure-track position, at the rank of Assistant Professor, with expertise in the history and/or health of Asian American communities in the United States. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and offer courses in the Asian American Studies Minor, as well as support the development and implementation of the proposed major in Asian American-Asian Studies. The candidate must possess knowledge and research experience in one or more Asian American communities. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience, research that uses an interdisciplinary ethnic studies framework to examine Asian American History and/or Asian American health (including medical sociology and anthropology), and a willingness to pursue research and involvement with the Central Valley’s Asian American communities. Our students are primarily Southeast Asian American, South Indian American, and East and West Asian Americans.

We welcome applications from across the range of social sciences fields, with preference for degrees in Ethnic Studies, History, Sociology, Anthropology, English, Public Health, Child and Family Science, Psychology or a closely related field like American Studies. The successful candidate must be eligible for and able to meet tenure requirements within the College of Social Sciences. A key factor in the position will be a willingness to collaboratively build the Asian American Studies program to a standalone department at Fresno State.

The successful applicant will be expected to teach Introduction to Asian American Studies, upper-division Asian American Studies courses, writing-intensive courses, General Education courses that meet the University’s Ethnic Studies requirement, maintain an active research agenda, and undertake service to the department, university, and community.
