As part of a new university strategic focus in Social Justice, the College of Arts and Sciences at Case Western Reserve University invites applications for a tenure-track position. Candidates' research and scholarship should focus on U.S. urban issues with emphases on power and politics, cities and capitalism, inequality, activism, or other social justice-related topics. Specialization and rank are open. Qualified applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand or have met all requirements for a Ph.D. by August 2011. Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should demonstrate promise for research and teaching excellence; Associate Professor candidates should have established a significant professional reputation; candidates for Professor should be internationally recognized for leadership and scholarship in their discipline.

The successful candidate will have a 2/2 teaching load and be located in a department appropriate to their disciplinary training or field of study. The successful candidate will be the second of several new anticipated tenure-track hires over the next several years in the College to support the university-wide Social Justice Institute's commitment to understanding inequality, policy, and social change through research and scholarship and by training social justice leaders. The Institute's work reflects the University's mission to improve people's lives through preeminent research, education, and creative endeavor. The new hire is expected to directly contribute to the Institute and its alliance-based initiatives.

This is an exciting time to join other faculty committed to advancing social justice-related work at CWRU, a Research 1 university. The opportunities and need for research and action on issues of disparity in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, where the economic recession is exacerbating urban inequalities in employment, education and access to opportunity, have never been greater.

CWRU offers the student quality and class size of a strong liberal arts college, within one of the nation's major research universities.

Applicants are asked to send a letter of application outlining expertise in the field, academic background, and teaching experience; curriculum vitae; a writing sample; and at least three letters of recommendation (sent separately by the recommender) to Marcia Camino (marcia.camino@case.edu) or to Marcia Camino, Office of the Dean, Crawford Hall, 7th Floor, College of Arts and Sciences, 10900 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44106-7068. Applications received by January 14, 2011 will receive full consideration.

For further information on the CWRU Social Justice Institute, see the Institute's website at http://case.edu/socialjustice/ or contact Dr. Rhonda Y. Williams, Director, Social Justice Institute, at rhonda.williams@case.edu or Dr. Jill E. Korbin, Associate Dean and Chair, Search Committee, at jill.korbin@case.edu.
