The Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago
invites applications for an Assistant Professor in Latinx

applications from scholars who also investigate these issues from a
comparative or transnational perspective that includes a focus on

of the faculty in the Department of Political Science, and we,
therefore, welcome applicants from groups that are historically
underrepresented in the academy.
Candidates must have completed all requirements for the PhD
degree prior to the start of the appointment.
Applicants must apply at the University of Chicago’s Interfolio
website at http://apply.interfolio.com/92390.
Applications must include: 1) a cover letter that, among other
things, describes the applicant's prior and potential contributions
to diversity in the context of academic research, teaching, and
service; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a research statement addressing
current research and future plans for research; 4) a teaching
statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy; 5) two
