POSITION DESCRIPTION

Assistant Professor (Area Open)

The UCI Paul Merage School of Business is seeking candidates to fill one tenure-track Assistant Professor position whose research, teaching and/or service contribute to UCI’s Black Thriving Initiative and Cluster hiring in Poetic Justice. This position is open to individuals in any academic area in business.

QUALIFICATIONS:
We are seeking individuals from all areas of business with a commitment to research on creative enterprises, with a focus on diversity and equity. A Ph.D. in a relevant discipline is required (Ph.D. must be completed by Summer 2023). Salary will be commensurate with prior performance and experience.

At every crucial juncture in our nation’s history, Black authors, artists and other creative workers have produced new narratives, images and social practices that challenge systemic anti-black racism and affirm Black life and humanity. This position is part of a BTI Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative on Poetic Justice, which mobilizes a whole university approach to transform UCI into the preeminent place of higher education where black and system-impacted students, faculty and staff thrive while producing new visions of social justice. Leveraging campus-level cultural infrastructure, including the Langson Libraries and Institute and Museum of California Art, the Poetic Justice initiative is a collaboration between the Departments of African American Studies and Comparative Literature in the School of Humanities; the Department of Art in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts; the Paul Merage School of Business; and the Department of Criminology, Law and Society in the School of Social Ecology. Faculty hired as part of the cluster will develop the Poetic Justice initiative, including innovating how we study the racial effects of slavery, segregation and mass incarceration; and leading community-based activities that support the economic and cultural well-being of black communities in Southern California and beyond.

Candidates should demonstrate a strong interest in art and creative industries, incorporating a lens on diversity and equity in these sectors. Art and creative industries play a central role in the economy and society. They are sites of entrepreneurship activity as well as management of existing institutions. Despite the overlap between the arts and business, few business schools have expertise in art and culture. The ideal candidate investigates the role of diverse voices in creative production, the obstacles members of marginalized groups face in participating in creative industries, and/or the cultivation of historically marginalized audiences.

New hires will join a dynamic business school located in the heart of Orange County’s thriving business community. The Merage School faculty has been globally recognized for their research contributions and teaching innovations. The Financial Times ranks the Merage School #1 in number of female faculty. Our programs also strive to fully represent our professional community, continually searching for applicants with different backgrounds to enrich the educational experience.

Merage School faculty are actively involved in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts, supporting the new Black Management Association and the School’s Latinx Initiative. The School also houses seven faculty-led Centers of Excellence which serve as a bridge between the Merage School and the local business community: the Beall Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Center for Digital Transformation, the Center for Global Leadership, the Center for Health Care Management and Policy, the Center for Investment and Wealth Management, the Center for Real Estate, and the UCI Long US-China Institute.

Launched in 2020 during the racial reckoning, the UCI Black Thriving Initiative mobilizes the entire university to transform UCI into the nation’s foremost destination for Black people to thrive as students, faculty, staff, and communities served by the university. To this end, it consists of three action platforms that seek to inform choices, decisions, and priorities as a great public research university. These are: change the culture, leverage the mission, and engage with communities. A major feature of BTI involves advancing understanding about the multifaceted Black experience and drivers of well-being in support of Black communities. The associated faculty cluster hiring program builds on and expands our shared values of diversity, equity and inclusion and commitment to social justice. Selected from a multi-year competition, the three BTI hiring clusters reflect the power and promise of interdisciplinary collaboration. They are: Environmental Health Disparities, Infrastructure Equity, and Poetic Justice. To accelerate and elevate the impact of the research, teaching, and service of participating and affiliated faculty, each cluster will receive dedicated programming support for three years. For more information, consult the BTI website: https://inclusion.uci.edu/action-plan/msi/uci-black-thriving-initiative/.

Call for Research Assistants: Census Book Project with danah boyd

Freelance Research Assistant Positions: danah boyd, 2020 Census Book Project

I am seeking ~3 research assistants to provide support on my current book project about the 2020 U.S. census (title still tbd, under contract with University of Chicago Press). These freelance positions will each require approximately 80-100 hours somewhere between July and October.

For the last four years, I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork inside the U.S. Census Bureau and among census stakeholders; I have also conducted over 100 interviews with informants involved in this process. I am currently writing a book on my findings to examine the technical, social, and political production of data. The book focuses on how government officials at the Census Bureau averted a series of near-disasters to produce the Constitutionally required data only to face significant threats to the legitimacy of the work.

As a researcher and writer, I start with empirical data and build from there. I have already produced a first draft that is rich with empirical material. In subsequent drafts I am seeking research assistance to thicken my engagement with relevant literatures and currently scholarly debates. Much of my writing implicitly invokes different literatures, but I need to ensure that these conversations are legible to scholars from different fields. I am looking for RAs who are familiar with the literature that I’m engaging with, can push me to ensure that I am actively and strategically engaging with said literature, and can point me to literature I am less familiar with. This book crosses multiple disciplines and multiple literatures – and it is quite likely that I have significant gaps in my knowledge that I should contend with. In short, these RAships are a form of deeply engaged peer review.

I am looking for RAs who are already well-versed in at least one of the literatures I’m engaging with though coursework, qualifying exams, dissertation writing, or their own publications. The key literatures that are woven throughout this book include:

  • STS. Lots on infrastructures and sociotechnical imaginaries with a mix of SCOT, feminist STS, and occasionally some ANT (sans Latour ::wink::).
  • Organizational sociology. Much of this is a public-sector orgs ethnography of the Diane Vaughn or Janet Vertesi style. I’m also looking at organizational failure and resilience, and organizational communication.
  • History of statistics/politics of numbers. Think Porter, Daston, Gallison, Hacking, Bouk, James Scott.
  • Public administration (and some administrative law), with a U.S. bent. Think Dan Carpenter, Pamela Herd, Don Moynihan, Elizabeth Popp Berman, David Pozen.

I am also picking up assorted other literatures along the way. Right now, I connect haphazardly to literatures on “partnerships,” activism, and multi-stakeholder engagement; legitimacy, agnotology, and conflicting epistemic constructions; network power; and various threads connected to political science. All of this needs to be strengthened in future drafts. (Needless to say, I’m also engaging deeply with census-related histories, including those concerning the history of race and the census, but I am not looking for help in this area.)

Responsibilities. RAs will be asked to read the partially written book with an eye towards the literature they’re responsible for (e.g., “sts” or “organizational sociology”) and engage me in both written (aka email/trackbacks) and oral (aka Teams/Zoom) modes. They will be asked to challenge my use of the literature, flag where I should be engaging with the literature better/differently/more, and suggest additional literature for me to engage with based on their own knowledge of the debates. I will also ask the RAs where to place certain literature/arguments based on their read. RAs may be encouraged to write footnotes and commentary based on their knowledge; some of this may be used in the final book (with credit).  RAs might also be asked to track down specific literature or trace the lineage of certain arguments. RAs are not expected to have any knowledge about the census (and it may be better if they do not). Think: non-anonymous paid peer review where you get to flag all the missing literature!

Compensation and Logistics. These are hourly contractor positions, paid at $25/hour. My expectation is that the basic work will take 80-100 hours; additional hours may be available depending on the quality of the work. Ideally, the work will take place in August or September, although some early work is possible in July and there may be additional work in October. As freelancers, RAs will need to invoice me for their hours and will be responsible for their own taxes, equipment, library access, healthcare, etc. (Freelancers are also responsible for the knowing their jurisdiction’s rules on accepting contract pay.) The hours are flexible, although I ask RAs to keep me abreast of their progress. Those who complete the work in a satisfactory manner (and anyone whose work is directly used) will also be acknowledged in the book.

Please note: I am hiring these contractor positions directly; these freelance RA positions are not associated with any organizations with which I am affiliated. I cannot support visas, provide library access, or otherwise offer organizational support.  
 
Qualifications. These positions are intended for RAs who are already well-versed in at least one of the relevant literatures. Qualified RAs might have taken their qualifying exams in these areas or written extensively on related topics. I do not expect any one RA to be familiar with all of the various academic literatures; I am looking for complementary RAs with diverse knowledge sets. Preference will be given to those who approach literature from a citational justice perspective. While these positions are envisioned for ABD PhD students, those with equivalent experience are welcome to apply. Postdocs, alt-ac scholars, and other post-graduate school researchers may find this work to be a fulfilling complement to their own work.

Ideal qualities include:

  • Depth and breadth of relevant scholarly literature in at least one of STS, sociology, public administration, or related fields. Know the literature and the debates.
  • Reliable with strong organization and written communication skills, as well as attention to detail. You provide the schedule and stick to it.
  • Comfort challenging my interpretation/analysis and pushing me to go deeper/rethink my argument. The Reviewer #2 you wish you had.
  • Able to easily explain the key arguments of a scholar’s work in a way that makes the ideas shine. Relish the inner professorial desires.
  • Familiarity with Zotero, Microsoft Word, Dropbox, and relevant research library search engines. Know your tools.

To Apply. Please send the following information to me at danah-censusRA@danah.org  

  • Cover letter that includes why you are interested and describes your experience and which literatures you are familiar with.
  • CV that reflects your experience as a scholar.
  • A document that reflects the relevant literature that you know well. This could be your qualifying exam reading list, a syllabus you taught/TAed, a paper you wrote with a relevant bibliography, an annotated bibliography, or equivalent document.  

Deadline. I will begin reviewing applicants on July 1, 2022 and continue accepting applications until the positions are filled.

Questions? Do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at danah-censusRA@danah.org  If you would like to see if this project is substantively of interest to you, I am happy to share a draft of the introduction in advance.

The Berkeley Culture Initiative aims to usher in the next generation of culture research, one that draws on a wide range of data sources and computational methods to uncover different facets of culture within and across organizations and industries. We partner with organizations and academics from a wide diversity of disciplines and industries to lead these efforts, with the ultimate goal of leveraging research insights to help organizations function more effectively and advance academic understanding.

The Initiative puts on various events throughout the year to promote discussion and create a shared research agenda between academia and industry, culminating in our annual Culture Conference. Through talks, discussions, and activities led by leaders from industry and academia, the conference convenes leading academic researchers studying organizational culture and a set of strong-culture company leaders to deepen the dialogue about how to address various culture-related challenges, such as fostering a culture of innovation and inclusion, introducing large-scale cultural change and tracking its progress, and understanding the impact of culture on firm and employee performance.

Assistant Professor in Global Sociology (0.8 – 1.0 FTE)  
Vacancy number 22-010 10525

APPLY HERE

Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology (CADS) at Leiden University studies the everyday practices of individuals, groups, and communities worldwide, to situate them within complex global challenges. Our CADS research program Global Vulnerabilities and Social Resilience focusses on three areas of research: Sustainability, Diversity, and Digitalization. At CADS we propagate a signature methodology consisting of a unique mix of qualitative, quantitative, digital and visual methods grounded in ethnographic fieldwork. We do this research along both disciplinary and interdisciplinary lines, together with our academic and preferred societal partners.

The CADS-teaching program is home to a vibrant student community consisting of over 30 nationalities. Diversity is key to who we are and what we do; in creating an inclusive learning environment where a diversity of experiences, perspectives and positionalities is fully supported, in our own research and in appointing research and teaching staff.

We intend to strengthen our research and education in two of our specializations, diversity and sustainability, and seek to complement our team with an assistant professor in either one or a combination of these fields.

Tasks

  • You will teach courses at Bachelor and Masters level, in the field of diversity or sustainability, area studies and or ethnographic fieldwork methods;
  • You will supervise B.Sc. and M.Sc. theses;
  • You will contribute to our academic output within the scope of the CADS research program, with research in possibly (but not restricted to) the field of migration, gender, labor, citizenship, minority rights, grassroots and green movements or alternative ways of organizing, in Asia, Europe or a combination thereof;
  • You may supervise junior research (for example Ph.D. candidates) within the scope of our research program;
  • You are able to acquire significant external research funds within the scope of the CADS research program, particularly in the fields of diversity and sustainability.

Requirements

  • You hold a Ph.D. in Anthropology, Sociology or a relevant neighboring discipline, have a thorough knowledge of ethnographic methods and research interests that complement the current expertise at our Institute;
  • You are an innovative and inspiring teacher who knows how to engage a diverse community of graduate and undergraduate students with an inclusive approach to teaching, and can contribute to the decolonisation of our curriculum;
  • You have a promising publication record, notably international peer-reviewed publications and/or (forthcoming) monographs, films or other multimodal formats;
  • You have experience in acquiring external research funds, and are willing and able to attract international and national research grants (such as the Netherlands Research Council (NWO) VENI and VIDI funding schemes or the ERC Starting Grant scheme);
  • You are inventive, communicative and know how to collaborate with students and colleagues from a diversity of backgrounds, and have networking skills that enable you to tap in and reach out to a network of diverse social partners;
  • You are willing and able to meet the requirements for a Basic Teaching Qualification (BKO) within two years if you do not already possess a Dutch University Teaching Qualification;
  • If you do not speak Dutch, the institute will cover the costs and will provide time to follow language courses so you will be able to master a relevant level of linguistic competence (NT2) within a period of two year.

Considering the current composition of our staff, and our commitment to diversity, we expressly encourage people from groups presently underrepresented at our institute to apply.
