The Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies invites applications for its part-time lecturer pool. This is a continuous recruitment, and we accept applications on an ongoing basis. Applicants will remain in the pool for 18 months.

For the spring of 2021, we have a call for applicants with a specialization in advanced writing and in Chicana/o/x literature. Application deadline: October 15 or until positions are filled.

These courses are: 

  • Chicana/o Prose (396W), which fulfills upper-division, university writing requirements; and
  • Chicana/o Literature (CCS 335).

Additionally, we invite applications to add to our pool of lecturers for:

  • Chicana/o History (CCS 141A and B); and
  • Chicana/o Roles in the American Political System (CCS 120A and B).

We accept applications from individuals trained in a variety of fields, but we especially seek candidates with a strong background in Chicana/o Studies (or Ethnic Studies) who are sensitive to the needs of underrepresented populations at the university. Depending on the applicant’s area of expertise, preferred qualifications include a Ph.D., Ed.D., or M.F.A, experience teaching, and experience with community service and research as it relates to Chicana/o/x communities; graduate students completing their doctoral work are also encouraged to apply.

If interested, submit a letter of application indicating which course(s) you are applying to teach, a full curriculum vitae, two letters of recommendation, and a writing sample. Please send these materials to the department’s administrative coordinator, Bertha Hernández [email protected].
