This search is part of our departmental commitment to transforming anthropology through research, rigorous academic teaching, training, and public service to promote cultural understanding and social, racial, and environmental justice, while empowering our students to change the world. We value community-driven and activist research to generate theoretical innovation and address local and global inequities.

The department supports the ample opportunities for innovative collaborations across our vibrant campus, including with the newly established Department of Black Study and the Department of Society, Environment and Health Equity, as well as academic programs in Art, History, Environmental Sciences, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Southeast Asian Studies, and the School of Medicine, among others.

Complete applications will include a current CV, a cover letter of interest describing research portfolio, leadership experience, and vision as Chair, a statement on past and potential contributions to diversity, copies of up to three publications, evidence of teaching excellence and of graduate and undergraduate mentoring, and the names and contact information for at least three references.

UCR has had major successes in our commitment to recruiting faculty from diverse backgrounds. Across CHASS, applicants will find a strong group of faculty that share concerns with race, class, gender, and age dynamics. Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.
