DESCRIPTION

 

The Department of Chicana/o Studies at the University of California, Davis invites applicants for an assistant/associate rank search in Chicana/o Studies with a specialization in Education. Candidates are sought with strong research agendas examining the P-20 educational systems and utilizing methodologies emergent within Chicana/o Studies. The department seeks scholars with a strong community-based practice. These practices can manifest utilizing a range of methods including Community Based Participatory Research (CPBR), Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR), decoloniality, indigeneity, holistic health/healing, feminist, queer and/or critical pedagogies. Candidates who have successfully engaged community contexts are encouraged to apply. These contexts can be a range of spaces where pedagogies are delivered.

 

Successful candidates will be expected to demonstrate excellence in delivering undergraduate and graduate level curriculum in Chicana/o Studies and/or Education with potential to teach emergent methodologies in the field of Chicana/o Studies. The department seeks scholars who have an interest in developing a new curricular track in Chicanx education.
