The department of Race, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse invite applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 2022.

The candidate should have a thorough grounding in various Asian American social, historical, cultural, and political perspectives and be committed to teaching and researching at the intersections of gender, race, class, religion, and immigration/refugee policies, with transnational/Asian diaspora expertise preferred. In addition to instructional duties, the successful candidate will serve as the lead faculty member for the Hmong Certificate by advising students in the program, promoting the program, and maintaining connections to colleagues across campus with courses within the program, campus student organizations, and colleagues across the upper Midwest with similar programs.

In academic year, 2021-2022, the departments of Ethnic & Racial Studies and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, housed in the College of Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities, combined forces in to enhance what was already a thriving and diverse community of scholars and activists. The new Dept. of Race, Gender, and Sexuality Studies now houses a major and minor in Race, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and also leads the Social Justice minor, Hmong and Hmong American Studies certificate, and a Self-Sufficiency Program that serves the larger community in La Crosse and surrounding areas.

The successful candidate must be committed to excelling in undergraduate teaching; assisting in the development of courses and curricula in their area of expertise; and continuing or developing a line of research and scholarship in their own area of expertise, which can include undergraduate researchers. Candidates with diverse backgrounds and/or experience working with diverse populations and an interest in helping us build upon the department’s commitment to diversity (broadly defined) in its faculty, staff, and students, are particularly encouraged to apply. The candidate for this position should also be an educator with strong collaboration and communication skills who is committed to teaching excellence. A typical teaching load at UWL is 4/4, with two one-course teaching reassignment semesters within the first three years.
