Assistant Professor, Africana Studies, Tenure-Track Positions

College of Wooster
Department: Africana Studies

The College of Wooster seeks to appoint two Assistant Professors in the Department of Africana Studies beginning August 2023. First founded in 1968, the Department of Africana Studies has long held a central role in a College of Wooster education, offering both a major and minor in the context of a liberal arts curriculum focused on mentored undergraduate research. With College-wide strategic planning underway, we are excited to hire a new cohort of faculty leading the Department into the future. Given the interdisciplinary nature of Africana Studies, we welcome applications that reflect a range of expertise within the field. There are currently affiliated faculty across the College contributing to our major and minor. While we will consider applicants with any relevant training in the field of Africana Studies, we are especially interested in candidates who can complement our existing areas of expertise and contribute to other major programs on campus such as Political Science, Sociology, Communication Studies, Archaeology, Urban Studies, Music, Religious Studies, and Theatre. Candidates at the advanced Assistant Professor level are welcome to apply; candidates with experience at the Associate Professor level may be considered and are encouraged to contact the search chair.
