Position description

The Rady School of Management invites applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) beginning July 1, 2022, as part of the Latinx Cluster Hire Initiative. This is an open-area search. Relevant topics include accounting, business analytics, economics/strategy, entrepreneurship and innovation, finance, management, marketing, operations, organizational behavior, technology, and other mainstream business school research areas.

This position is one of 14 new ladder-rank faculty positions in the Latinx Cluster Hire Initiative (LCHI) at UC San Diego. The LCHI aims to increase faculty diversity, innovative research, and culturally relevant curriculum and mentorship through increased engagement and collaboration between various departments across campus with the Chicanx and Latinx Studies (CLS) and Latin American Studies (LAS) programs.

Faculty hired under LCHI will have multiple opportunities to contribute to UC San Diego’s transformation from an emergent Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) to a full-status HSI that meets the curricular and cultural needs of Latinx, URM, and first-generation students. This includes faculty engagement with scholars across disciplines to address issues of race and racism, access and equity, and social and political debates pertinent to Chicanx, Latinx, and Latin American Studies, while also working within their home departments and professional communities. As part of their teaching portfolio, faculty hired under LCHI will be expected to design and teach at least one undergraduate course that aligns with the CLS and/or LAS academic programs, mentor students, and serve as faculty affiliates in one or both programs.

We seek candidates whose research, teaching, and service will advance UC San Diego’s transition to HSI and/or anti-racism, anti-oppression, equity, and social justice with a focus on the Latinx/Chicanx community. We especially welcome candidates whose professional experience, community engagement, and personal background have facilitated their understanding of and ability to better serve students from traditionally underrepresented communities in higher education. Faculty are expected to have an inclusive approach to mentoring and advising that incorporates working with women and underrepresented students.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales. For applicants interested in spousal/partner employment, please visit the UCSD Partner Opportunities Program web site at https://aps.ucsd.edu/services/pop/index.html.
