Duke University Trinity College of Arts and Sciences is launching a search for two tenure-track professors whose research focuses on issues of critical importance to contemporary Africa. These hires are part of an effort to increase the number of faculty with global perspectives and expertise across core departments, with support from the Office of the Provost and funded by The Duke Endowment.

Candidates should be at the assistant or associate professor level; the search is open to discipline and to field. Successful candidates should be working on issues that confront the continent today—including but not constrained to economic development and institutions, urbanism, migration, political development and institutions, environmentalism, decoloniality, cultural production, and new knowledge formations.  Candidates will be considered in the context of the hiring department, with an interest to increase the representation of these studies across arts and sciences.

Candidates submitting materials by November 1, 2019 will receive full consideration.  Candidates should submit a cover letter, cv, work sample, and names of three references.  Review of candidates will continue until positions are filled.
