The UCSD Department of Sociology invites applications for the newly endowed Daniel Yankelovich Chair in Social Thought. The substantive areas of the chair-holder’s research are open. However, the holder of the Yankelovich chair should be a senior scholar whose research and teaching clearly demonstrate the ability to transcend the boundaries of their discipline in understanding important issues and problems; to place their research and thinking in the larger context of society; and to communicate cogently and clearly, with a view to exercising influence in both the academy and the world beyond the academy.
The ideal candidate will have strong demonstrated accomplishments in areas contributing to diversity, equity and inclusion, and a desire to play an important role in advancing the university’s commitment to achieving excellence and diversity. Interested individuals are asked to submit a CV and samples of their written work. We also ask for separate statements concerning the candidate’s research agenda and their contributions, or potential for contributions, to diversity. (Guidelines for preparing the diversity statement can be found at http://facultyequity.ucsd.edu/Faculty-Applicant-C2D-info.asp)
