Dear readers, the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Missouri-Kansas City is looking to fill an opening in its Latina/Latino Studies (LLS) program at the rank of assistant professor, associate professor or professor, depending on the experience of the successful candidate. The call is open to all fields and research backgrounds. From the announcement:
…the successful candidate will possess excellent pedagogical skills teaching a variety of university courses, as well as a record of scholarship and/or service in the field of Latina/o Studies, Afro-Latino Studies, Latin American Studies, or related fields.
This faculty person will teach core LLS courses in our undergraduate minor, including the introductory course, as well as LLS-related courses from their respective discipline. All LLS courses are open to students in all disciplines and some courses can be explicitly cross-listed in other disciplines and can accept graduate students.
The faculty hired is expected to contribute to the program’s efforts of enhancing interdisciplinary teaching, research, and service. This faculty is expected to contribute to both strengthen and diversify the current minor and explore opportunities to expand the Latina/Latino Studies with a graduate certificate, a major, and, eventually, a master program.
