Tenure-Track Opportunity in Anti-Racism at University of Washington

The Department of Health Services at the University of Washington (UW) seeks to fill one full-time faculty position with a focus on Anti-Racism as a Full Professor (tenure-track) on a 12-month service period with an anticipated start date as early as fall 2020.   

The position would serve as the Director for the Center for the Study of Anti-Racism and Health (ARCH).  The purpose of ARCH is to provide a community of scholarship and activism – in the School of Public Health, across the University, and within the broader community – concerning interventions that can break down the societal and institutional structures of racism and, thus, to reduce future inequalities in health.

They seek candidates with demonstrated experience in research, teaching, mentorship, and administration related to structural racism, its impact on health, and approaches to disrupt it.  The Director is expected to engage in both university and community service at the local, regional, national, and international levels and encouraged to establish their own research agenda, including how racism intersects with other social inequities.  

See position listing for full details.

To be considered for this position, please submit the following:

  • A statement describing your interest in the position, including relevant leadership and mentoring experience, research interests and teaching history;
  • A one-page diversity statement that describes your experience related to equity, diversity, and inclusion, as well as your potential to contribute to our diversity mission and commitment to being an anti-racist institution; and
  • Curriculum Vitae (including description of extramural funding)
  • Names and contact information for four references.  References will only be contacted after an initial screening of candidates.

Review of applications will begin January 15, 2020. The position is open until filled.

If you have questions please contact: Holly Bergstrom, Manager of Faculty Human Resources at hb2@uw.edu
