Hi all:

This may be of interest to some on this list.



The Department of Public & Applied Humanities at the University of
Arizona is seeking a tenure-track Assistant Professor. The top
candidate will be able to contribute expertise, leadership, and
imagination to the department’s efforts to theorize and prefigure
responses to the future of the human being.

Candidates should be highly collaborative, exploratory, and
hardworking, with a humanities-oriented research specialization in one
or more of the following areas: the environment (natural or built),
fabrication (material, biological, electronic), health (cellular,
systemic, societal), technology (digital, analog, biological), or
storytelling (place-based and/or digital). Experience with and an
understanding of international and/or foreign language content
creation, or Indigenous/First Nations/Native lifeways will be of
particular interest given the Department’s institutional and
geographic location.

The teaching load is two courses per semester. Teaching
responsibilities will include undergraduate and graduate courses, as
well as curricular design and program innovation.

The Department of Public & Applied Humanities is one of 18 units in
the University of Arizona’s College of Humanities. The Department
works to translate the personal enrichment characteristic of
humanities study into public enrichment and the direct and tangible
improvement of the human condition. Through research-driven,
collaborative, and publicly facing projects built to explore and
enhance life in the community and beyond, our students and scholars
convert understanding into action for the measurable betterment of
society. The Department is fundamentally experimental,
entrepreneurial, and transdisciplinary, and focuses on public and
private opportunities that straddle disciplinary boundaries.
