The Department of African and African American Studies (DAAAS) at Stanford University is conducting an open-rank search for a faculty position in Afro-Caribbean Studies and/or Afro-Latin American Studies in the humanities, arts, or humanistic social sciences, to be appointed at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor depending on candidate qualifications. The position is open to scholar-researchers or practicing artist-scholars with a PhD or MFA. The term of the appointment is expected to begin on September 1, 2025. Applications will be accepted through October 1, 2024 at 11:55PM PST

We welcome applications from candidates who concentrate on the broadly defined oceanic and land-based Caribbean and Latin American regions, encompassing the diverse array of cultural and linguistic currents of the region’s African-descended communities. Applicable fields may include, but aren’t limited to: history; literary, cultural, media or film studies; Black or African and African American studies; social and cultural anthropology; linguistics; music; performance studies; religious studies; philosophy; environmental humanities; dance; art history or visual studies; creative writing; women, gender, sexuality or queer studies; or photography. We are focused on identifying exceptional scholarship, innovation, and creativity rather than looking for a specific thematic or disciplinary specialization.

The successful candidate must have a PhD or MFA at the time of appointment and will be expected to teach and advise students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Applicants must have demonstrated a commitment to effective teaching and mentoring and the ability to maintain a world-class research trajectory or creative output. Applicants should also demonstrate their capacity for interdisciplinary thinking and institution-building to contribute to the growth of DAAAS.
