About Department of African & African-American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis

Chair of the African and African American Studies Department

Washington University in St. Louis

The School of Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis seeks a dynamic senior scholar to lead its newly established Department of African and African American Studies (AFAS) and develop its future planning and direction. Founded in 1969 as Black Studies, it is one of the oldest programs in the country. Last fall, the University granted AFAS departmental status and committed significant resources, including multiple hiring lines and ample programming funds, to develop and grow the department.

Qualified candidates will have significant teaching experience with both graduate and undergraduate students and a distinguished record of research and publishing required for a tenured position as a full professor. (Exceptional applicants at the advanced associate professor level for whom the rank of full is imminent will also be considered.) Moreover, qualified candidates must have demonstrable administrative and leadership ability. A PhD or an equivalent terminal degree with a principal focus on some aspect or region of Africa and/or its Diaspora is required.
