Along with the emphasis on Latina/o politics, additional consideration will be given to candidates whose scholarship incorporates analysis across various racial/ethnic groups in the U.S. and to related factors (such as class and gender), and across various realms of politics (such as institutions, behavior, and combinations thereof).
Minimum Qualifications: candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Political Science or related discipline by the time of appointment; demonstrated excellence in research commensurate with appointment at the level of assistant professor; demonstrated potential to establish a strong, externally-funded research program; and evidence of promise in and commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching.

Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. degree completed by August 1, 2018.
