The Government Department at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for an open-rank position in Racial and Ethnic Politics. The search is open with respect to sub-field and methodological approach. We welcome work that considers racial and ethnic politics from a historical, comparative, or intersectional perspective. Successful candidates will have a research agenda centered on the understanding of racial and ethnic politics from the perspective of at least one marginalized group.

The successful candidate will show evidence or promise of excellence in scholarly research and publication, teaching, and intellectual and institutional leadership (for associate and full rank).

The Department is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service. The application should highlight any experiences working with diverse populations; examples might include mentoring activities, committee service, courses taught, and recruitment and retention activities.

UT Austin is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual-career couples and single parents.

Applications from candidates with strong methodological skills are especially welcomed.


Applicants must hold a Ph.D. for appointment as Assistant Professor or higher ranks, or expect to obtain it within a year of joining the faculty as Instructor. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Application Instructions

Applicants should upload a cover letter, vita, three letters of recommendation (names and contact information only for applicants at the associate and full rank), examples of scholarly work, teaching materials (a statement of teaching philosophy and sample course evaluations), and diversity statement.

The Department will begin reviewing applications October 1, and continue until the position is filled.
